This is a very exciting time for your child as they embark on a new beginning into their learning adventure. As always, God will be present to help support these precious little people as they settle into school life, learn to make new friends and support each other in their Faith and Learning journey. We truly believe that every child is a gift from God and we seek to support them in being the best that God wants them to be.
All of the EYFS team are highly passionate about teaching children and we cannot wait to see them flourish. We are always available both before and after school if anyone wishes to talk to us regarding any issues no matter how big or small. We also use class DOJO and love to communicate with you via this app so please make sure that you sign up by clicking on the link below.

We have recently invested in a brand new phonics scheme called Little Wandle - Letters and Sounds.
Here is the website link:
There are many useful HOW TO videos for parents to watch so you can support your children at home.
The website also has many other useful documents from letter formation rhymes to how to pronounce the sound correctly.
We cannot stress enough how important PHONICS is for children. This is how children beginning to learn to read and write. We have high regard for reading in our school and teaching children to develop a love of reading. Please support us in developing phonics early in reception :)
Reading- books will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays. We encourage between 10-15 minutes of reading each day. Your child will also read to an adult in school. So please send your child's book bag into school every day.
PE- PE is on Wednesdays. Your child can come to school dressed in their PE kits.
Homework-This will be posted on dojo every Friday with the expectation it is uploaded to their dojo portfolio by the following Thursday. Children will also receive a homework book with a termly homework grid on the inside to tick off when a task has been completed.
