Hello, and welcome to the Foundation Stage 2 team. Our EYFS teachers are Mrs Thomas, Mr Fidler and Mr O Reilly. We are supported by Mrs White, Miss O’Toole and Miss Dean.
On this page you can find key information, as well as ideas to support learning and development at home.
Our team plan responsively from children’s individual interests which evolve and develop over a term, we have themes which we introduce to provoke new ideas, thoughts and learning.
Our themes throughout our academic year are:
Night and Day
Once Upon a time
Down in the garden
Off on an adventure
Pirates and the seaside
Outdoor Learning: Outdoor learning is a fundamental part of our curriculum. Children will have the maximum opportunities to play and learn outdoors. We therefore ask that you dress them appropriately for the weather. School will kindly provide wellington boots and wet gear.
PE: PE will take place on a Friday afternoon. On this day your children will need to come to school wearing full school PE kit. We would also like to remind you that no jewellery should be worn to school and that shoes with Velcro should be worn unless your child can independently lace and fasten their own shoes.
Snack: Children will have the opportunity to access snack daily. This will consist of a range of healthy foods such as fruit, carrots and toast. We also bake within our sessions and encourage children to explore new foods, whilst learning and understanding the importance of a healthy diet. Children will be provided with the opportunity to access milk and water at their leisure, throughout the day.
Clothing: We would like to take this opportunity to remind you to label all items of clothing brought to school. It is also helpful if PE bags and packed lunches are also named. It helps us get belongings back to you more quickly when they are misplaced.
Attendance: Daily attendance at school from an early age supports children to fulfill their full potential. Remember that every second of every day counts and please notify the school office on your child’s first day of absence.
Reading: Once issued with a school reading book we expect that children bring their books to school every single day. If you listen to your child read please make a comment and update their reading record. We will send additional information regarding reading to your throughout the year.
