  • Week Beginning 22nd February Our theme after we return from the half-term holiday is traditional tales. We start this topic by linking our work in the classroom to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Activities include: retelling and acting out the story, measuring different lengths, counting and setting beans and asking ourselves philosophical questions such as, 'Was Jack right to take the giant's gold?'

  • Alexandra Park visit As part of our topic, Jack and the Beanstalk, we are considering taking the children on a visit to Alexandra Park on the afternoon of 25th February. Our main purpose is to allow the children to explore the climbing equipment in the park, but we will also walk around to explore the park for the early signs of spring. We would welcome adult support for this trip.   A reminder that we are also visiting the Library on the afternoon of the 3rd March and would welcome support on this afternoon as well.

  • How can you help? We spend Monday mornings in Reception talking, drawing and writing about what we did at the weekend. This is a really useful activity and helps children develop writing skills. A number of children are starting to arrive on Monday mornings wth clear ideas about what they are going to write about, which helps immensely with the quality of their writing. We appreciate that not all weekends are filled with 'wow' moments, but it would be really useful if you could spend a few moments with child, each weekend, talking about what they could write about. Something as simple as, 'I read a book with my mummy and it was fun' would be fine.

In Foundation Stage our lesson planning reflects the children's interests. Subsequently our plans are subject to change, often at short notice. The plans on the website are therefore a broad indicator of what the children will be discovering and learning and are not always accurate.
