Term 2 2022

To our dear Fledglings,

Welcome back to term 2 in Fledglings. 

· Projects, Plans and Routines – This term we will continue to find out about many different festivals celebrated at this time of year ...'Halloween, Bonfire Night and Fireworks, Remembrance Day, Diwali and Christmas'. We will be joining up with KS1 classes to produce a Christmas Nativity Play at the end of term that we hope you will all enjoy.

Every day the children in EYFS take part in child-initiated learning where they are encouraged to play and learn, inside and outside, following their own interests. Reception children particularly will also be taking part in daily focused tasks led by the staff and this is called 'adult led learning'

We will also progress with our new phonics scheme, 'Little Wandle' and will continue to send home work for you to look at with your child. Please remember it is useful to have the reading folders in every day.

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.

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.

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.

Upcoming dates:

Thursday 10th November - Forest School Session with Anna Outdoors

Tuesday 15th November - Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime at school

Wednesday 14th December - Nativity play to parents - more details to follow

Friday 16th December - Last day of term

Wednesday 4th January 2023 - Start of term 3 for children 

With love from, Mrs Ervine, Mrs Lead, Sarah, Sammy, Davina and Kim xxxxxx


Dear parents/carers,

Please click on the links below to access the remote learning resources for the appropriate week of the school closure.

Below you will find extra links to websites and documents which will give you additional guidance on organising some focussed learning at home if you choose. 

Starting with a Story - visit White Rose Maths for some activities based on stories.

  • Reception Reading and Phonics Our daily phonics sessions will continue to take place during the morning for our Reception children. We are still working on phase 3 sounds and words and there are lots of diagraphs and even triagraphs to learn! Thanks to all our parents for supporting your children so well with both our phonics and reading work, it is making such a difference to the progress they are all making.
  • Spare Clothes, Welly Boots and Water Bottles – Please remember we are a very hands on and messy Early Years Setting! The children WILL be getting dirty as they play and learn in Fledglings. It is very helpful if you can 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.

We are also asking that children please 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. Thank you.

  • P.E.Reception children will continue to take part in a P.E. session on Friday mornings. Please make sure your Reception child has a P.E. kit in school for that day, remove their jewellery and tie back long hair. Thank you.
  • Bike Groups – Bike groups take place most mornings for Nursery Children, weather and playground availability permitting. Children are very welcome to bring in their own bikes and scooters to use for bike group and it is helpful if they park them outside the Fledglings gate so that we can see them. It is also helpful to send in helmets if they have them (named) which they can hang on their pegs.

If you take up extra childcare over and above your child’s free entitlement, you will only ever be charged for the extra hours. Additional/non-funded hours can be paid for at a rate of £13.00 per session. Invoices will be emailed to you at the beginning of each month and fees are to be paid within 14 days of receipt of invoice. Payments can be made by cash, cheques, childcare vouchers or online bank transfers.

To claim the Free Early Education the child’s legal documentation, i.e. birth certificate or passport will be required on registration.

Payment of Fees

No deposit or registration fee required. Invoices will be issued on a monthly basis payable in advance. The account should be settled by the end of the second week of the invoice period. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, childcare vouchers or bank transfer. The fees may be subject to periodic reviews, increases will be notified at least one month in advance.

Fees cover all non-funded sessions for which the child is enrolled including any sessions not attended by the child for instance due to illness/holiday. One calendar month’s notice will be required to cancel a place/or reduce sessions, failure to follow to provide this notice will incur the usual fee of £13 per session. Please note that no notice period is required for Free Early Education places.

Non-payment of fees will result in the following actions by the nursery: Children in receipt of Free Early Education will only be able to attend nursery for their Free Early Education. Hours outside of this entitlement will not be available to access until the outstanding amount has been settled. Children who do not receive funding will be requested to not attend the setting until the outstanding amount has been paid.
