Spring 2 Newsletter

Our theme this half term is ‘Caring for our Environment’ By the end of this term your child will have a deeper understanding of what it means to look after our environment. To support us with our learning we will use the book ‘Tidy’ written by Emily Gravett. We will look closely at the world around us and develop our knowledge and understanding of the responsibility we have to ensure we care for our natural environment.

Children's Online Learning Journey - Tapestry

This year, we are introducing an exciting new way to record, track and share your child’s learning during their time in the Early Years Foundation Stage. We are using a secure, online learning journey called ‘Tapestry’. This will enable staff to take photographs, videos and make written observations of the significant learning your child does at school. You will then have access to this information by logging on with a secure username and password so you can celebrate this learning at home too. Parents/carers can also add their own photos and comments to the journal.

There will be an introduction meeting for Parents on Tapestry on the 15/10/18 at 9:15am at the infants.

All About me

This term our theme has been ‘All About Me’. We have been using the movie The Incredibles to support our learning. We have looked at our own super powers, our strengths, our weaknesses and how we overcome challenges.

As part of this learning we will be holding a Superhero Training Academy on Thursday 4th October. There will be a range of creative and physical challenges including face painting, cape making, and mask making and a bouncy castle obstacle course to test our physical skills. The training academy will be instead of a trip this term.

We would like to ask for a donation of £2 per child to cover the cost of the bouncy castle and resources for the training academy session. This will be payable on Parent Pay.

We are so excited about the day and hope you are too!

If you have any queries or questions about the day then please see a member of the Reception Team.

Best Wishes,

The Reception Team
