Foundation Stage Newsletter - 14.1.16

14 January 2016Year R

Dear Parents,

We have had a busy two weeks back and the children have settled in well to their new routines. For the past fortnight we have been learning about some people who help us. We have had a look at what Nurses and Doctors do to help us when we are poorly and have had lots of opportunity to use what we found out in our role play hospital, as well as with the small world ambulance and people! We have also enjoyed looking at the story ‘Funnybones’ and have had a go at making our own ‘dark, dark’ pictures. Some of us have even started to write letters on our pictures so that people can read about our work!

In Maths we have been practising our counting and are working on recognising numbers, in particular numbers past 10. We have had the chance to use different materials to write or print numbers and some of us are beginning to recognise that the 1 comes first in teen numbers!

Next week we will be learning all about firefighters and how they help us in different ways. We will look at some non-fiction texts to get information about their job and equipment, and use the computers to find things out too. We will be looking at 2D shapes and using them to make pictures and patterns.

Some important days 

  • Both classes will visit the woods every Tuesday Please ensure they have wellies in school and something to wrap up in (especially now that it’s turning chilly!)
  • Mr Race’s class will visit the library every Tuesday.
  • Miss Mabin’s class will visit the library every

A thank you!

Miss Mabin has had a fantastic response from parents who have been able to come in and listen to the children read. Thank you very much to those who have offered their time, I’m sure as you continue to visit us you will notice a huge improvement due to your support.

Dinner sign-up sheets for Week 3 will be available tomorrow morning and afternoon. Please let us know what your child will be eating. Thank you.

Have a wonderful weekend!
