Term 6 2023
Welcome back to term 6 in Fledglings. Can you believe it is already the last term of this academic year? Can we just take this opportunity to remind you to please ensure your child has a good coating of sun cream BEFORE they come to school (and cream in their bag to top up if necessary). A named sunhat and bottle of water are also essential for the warmer days. Thank you.
· Projects, Plans and Routines – This term our learning will be based around the topic of ‘Sizzling Summer Time'
o Listening to Summer themed stories and rhymes
o Joining in with Summer songs and rhymes
o Finding out about Summer holidays, picnics and fun days out - enjoying a walk to the park and eating an ice cream!
o Planting and looking after our own Summer garden
o Listening to stories, rhymes, poems and songs related to our topics
o Finding out about bees and other flying bugs
o Taking part in Sports Week at school and thinking about keeping fit and healthy
Reception Reading and Phonics – Our daily phonics sessions will continue to take place for our Reception children and we will send home the letters and sounds that we are working on in school so that you can practise them at home too. We are continuing to work on the phase 3 letters and sounds and there are lots of digraphs and even trigraphs to learn!
Can we please ask that your child continues to bring their reading folder into school EVERY DAY, so that we can use the books at school too and change them regularly. Thank you.
Spare Clothes and Welly Boots – Please remember we are a very hands on and messy Early Years Setting! It would be very helpful if you could please provide a spare set of clothes for your child to change into if they get wet or dirty. Please also send in a pair of NAMED welly boots that can stay at school.
Water Bottles, Sunhats and Sun Cream - We are also asking that children continue to bring a NAMED bottle of water with them into class each day. This means that they can take their own bottle outside with them on warmer days and we can encourage all of the children to drink more…especially during the afternoon sessions. A named sunhat will be necessary for hot and sunny days and please try to apply a good coating of sun cream to your child BEFORE school and send in a named tube of sun cream if you would like us to help your child to reapply at lunchtime.
P.E. – Reception children will continue to take part in a P.E. session on Friday mornings. Please make sure your Reception child comes to school WEARING their P.E. kit on Friday and remember to remove their jewellery and tie back long hair. Thank you.
Bike Groups – This term we will be running a ‘bike group’ session on Friday afternoons for ALL EYFS children – both Nursery and Reception. Where possible please encourage your child to bring their own bike or scooter (and helmet) to school on Friday so that we can take these onto the playground for your child to use in bike group time. We do have a small number of balance bikes and scooters at school that children can use if they are not able to bring their own in one week.
Thank you for your continued support, please do make an appointment to come and see us if you have any worries or concerns, alternatively speak to the office and we can phone you and have a chat at the end of the day.
With love from, Mrs Ervine, Mrs Lead, Sarah, Sammy, Davina and Kim xxxxxx
