Welcome to Early Years
21st June 2018
This week has been the start of our new topic of Minibeasts! We have already learnt so many facts about minibeasts and we have started looking closely at our environment to try and spot some!
We have welcomed Barney the African Snail into the school. We will be learning about what he likes to eat and he we can care for him properly to make sure he is happy at our school.
Please remember to send your child to school with a named water bottle and hat and apply sun cream in the mornings.
We have sent assembly lines home - attached to their reading records so please practice these at home, using a clear and loud voice.
Key dates for the next couple of weeks:
Sports Day: 29th June
EYFS assembly: 3rd July
Trip to Early Wood: 10th July
3rd May 2018
This week the children have loved becoming shop keepers after beginning to understand the concept of money and the value of 1 pence, 2 pence, 5 pence and 10 pence...We even had some security guards standing by the till to keep the money safe! Possibly next time you need to buy an ice-cream or stock up on some milk, discuss what change you might use to buy the items and encourage your child to pay for it themselves and to count any change that may be given.
Both classes are extremely interested and passionate about the blue tit family in the Wild Garden, the peregrine falcons in Woking and the tadpoles which were given to us from Mrs Grogan and we are hugely grateful for. Watching all of these animals day to day and seeing them grow, lay eggs and feed has sparked so many interesting and informative discussions between the children.

Who has been eating my porridge?!
This morning we tried four different flavours of porridge: honey, salt, plain and jam. We then decided which flavour was our favourite and entered our choices into a pictogram using our new Purple Mash software. Take a look at our photos and data ... I'm sure you can guess which flavour was our favourite!

Welcome back! We hope you had a break.
The whole school have loved joining in with maths week. EYFS have been cooking, doing practical doubling activities, playing board games, making symmetry butterflies and lots more! It was lovely to have some parent visitors on Friday to see how we learn too.
Here are some photos of the fun we got up to:
