Our topic this half term is ‘Me and My Home.’ We will be learning all about our bodies and how we can stay healthy. We will also be looking at our families and homes. We will also be walking through Woodlands to explore our local area.

Our curriculum overview for this half term can be accessed here or on the curriculum page. 

 

Other Information 

P.E.

Reception and Afternoon Nursery - Wednesday

Morning Nursery - Friday

  

Reading Books, Key Rings and High Frequency Words 

Reading books, key rings and high frequency words must be brought to school every day.

Books are changed on a Wednesday and we hear your child read their books and HFWs throughout the week.  Please remember to sign your child's reading record each time they read at home.  Children must read at least 4 times per week to keep their reading Golden Promise!  We also give out certificates for every 25 times your child reads at home.

 

Read with Me

Parents/carers are invited into class to read with their child each Friday morning until 9.00am.

We are also excited to be launching 'Family Book Chatter Sessions' each half term.  These sessions are for our Foundation Stage children, their parents/carers and younger siblings.  It is a chance to get together to share the love of reading in a rich and stimulating environment.  There will be a big focus on sharing the Imagination Library books, which all children in Doncaster can receive each month, for FREE, until their fifth birthday.  If you haven't signed up yet, follow this link or ask Miss Shelton to complete an application form in school. 

 

Homework

Homework will be given out on Fridays for reception children and should be returned by the following Wednesday.  Homework can be found on the homework page

Chicks  - May 2017

As part of our topic, 'From Egg to Chick,' we have had some little visitors!  We have been able to watch our chicks hatch from their egg and we have been able to hold them.  It has been very exciting! 

Multiskills - May 2017

Both Nursery and Reception took part in a Multiskills session, supported by a group of Y5 children.  We had a great time competing in different challenges and enjoyed timing and recording our scores.  Here are some photos from the session...

Bedtime Reading Event - February 2017

Thank you to all those who came back to school in their pyjamas for our annual Bedtime Story Event.  We shared a wide range of fantastic books and resources that supported them.  It was a great night for everyone! 

Some of the feedback we received: 
"My child had such a great night.  We can't wait for next year!"
"It was so lovely to see all of the children and adults excited about reading."
"My child wants to come back to school every night for a bed time story!" 
"Some of the resources were so easy to create or gather - I've got some great ideas to try at home."
"Thank you very much for a wonderful event. It was enjoyed by all."

Here are some photos from the evening...

Maths Stay and Play - October 2016

A big thank you to the few parents and carers that joined us for our maths stay and play.  We had a very fun morning exploring lots of different maths concepts.  We hope that more parents and carers will be able to join us next time.  It is an excellent opportunity to see what the children are learning about.

Here are some photos from the morning...

We will be having another maths stay and play soon... everyone is welcome!
