Welcome to Term 3


We have had a great start to our topic 'Do Cows Drink milk?' The children went to see our chickens and observed them carefully. We will be looking more closely at the animals we would find on the farm and farm produce. We also made some bread and will read the Little Red Hen and other farm stories. We will explore what we already know about farm animals and what we would like to find out about them. 


Have you every been on  a family visit to the farm? Please send in your photos into class or through the ILD.


Attached is our Topic overview below and Home learning tasks for Term 3.





Topic Overview and Home Learning Term 3

Welcome to Term 2


This term our topic is 'Will you read me a story?'


To kick start our topic, on the first day back please send your child in with a book of their favourite fairy tale. We will be reading many fairy tales and traditional stories with the children.

Please see below suggestions for Home learning in Term 2 and our topic overview.

Cornerstones Express! We made boats choosing our own materials, tested them in the water and had races!

The above documents show you the development matters statements that make up our EYFS curriculum. At the end of your child's reception year we would aim for your child to be confident and secure with the development matters statements in the 40-60 age band as well as achieving the ELGs written in bold.

We will be exploring journeys and different types of transport and ways to travel.

We will be looking at the story of Mr Gumpy's outing and creating our own boats using different materials and preparing and making  picnic! 


Please do bring in the booklets given to you on 'All about me'. We look forward to hearing about your summer break. Have you been on any journeys? Please do bring in any photographs to share with us.


We are hoping to have some interesting vehicles in our school. Please let us know if you can help us with this?


Please take a look at our topic overview below to see in greater detail about our learning this term.


We will be also be welcoming parents and carers to our 'Kick Start' Sessions first thing on Wednesday mornings beginning on 25th September. This is an opportunity to participate in reading activities in class with your children.


Look out for our 'welcome meeting' to get a better understanding on how we teach phonics and early reading skills. We will also share some key information on our routines with you.


Please remember to bring in a water bottle everyday and PE kits will need to be kept in school for the week.


We look forward to working with you.
