Early Years Foundation Stage Class Information 2020 – 2021
|PE Sessions||Friday||Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school everyday. PE bags are sent home every holiday giving parents an opportunity to wash and check that their child’s kit still fits them. Please ensure daps are provided for the summer terms 5 & 6.|
|Reading Books||Every Day||Reading books and records need to be in school every day. Reading books will be changed once a week.
Tricky words will be sent home for practice on a Friday in their red books.
|Homework||On Going||Children need to practice their reading and maths skills as near to every day as possible (3 x minimum each). Reading can be their reading book from school or books that you have at home. Children can retell stories that are familiar to them and practice their story language.
At the beginning of the year, all parents are given a pack including ideas for practising maths at home. The expectations of what your child should be able to achieve by the end of the year are detailed in their reading record.
Children’s maths skills can be developed in many ways and counting objects on the way home or playing board games can be an excellent starting point.
You can also use your child’s Phonics Hero and Numbots login as part of their homework. The passwords can be found in the children’s reading diaries.
|Me Box||Fridays||Children have the opportunity to present their ‘ME Box’ to the class. A letter detailing when it is your child’s turn is sent out in advance.|
|Out of school achievements||Friday||Certificates, medals and awards can be sent to school every Friday for Mrs Robinson to present in our celebration assembly.|
|WOW Slips||On Going||Parents can send in information about important and exciting achievements that may have happened at home, which the children would like to share with school. This information will also be put into their profiles. Blank WOW slips can be obtained from Mrs Holbrow or Mrs Nelmes.|
|Library Sessions||TBC||The library is open every Tuesday from 3.30pm to 4pm for children to borrow a book for 14 days after which it needs to be returned to the library and changed or renewed. Each book has a unique library barcode. Every child has their own code as well so books are scanned in and out of the library. Please do not return library books to the classroom.
If you have any queries regarding the library please see Mrs Noad or Mrs Sheppard.
