Our School Values

Our EYFS staff have been thinking about the school values and the things you could do at home to reflect these values. 

 

Mrs. Durrant has read you a Bible story about kindness.

A Message to all of EYFS and their parents!

End of unit activity

For Reception R.E. this week we would like you to independently write some information about yourselves to accompany a photograph. You can use the sheet provided or make your own on some plain or lined paper. We would like these to be used to tell your Year 1 teacher a little bit about yourselves. Please bring in the information when you meet your teacher in September so they can keep the work or take a photo of it and email it to school.

Reception Reading Books

We assume that by now you will have read all of the books that we gave you. We are now going to try using Oxford Owl free eBooks.

 

Please click on the link below.

 

You should be able to see a pink button in the top bar that says 'My class login' please click on this and use the following login details.

 

Username: Bush/Cooper

Password: I love reading

 

You will then be able to click on 'My Bookshelf' this lists all of the books in order from picture books through to KS1 books. I've included a guide of which book you could start with. You will however have to spend some time finding the right level book, as not every child within a  phonics group is at exactly the same place with their reading.

 

As a rough guide (assuming your child can remember who they went to for our phonics sessions)

Mrs Cooper's phonic group start with Fetch

Mrs Kalsi's phonic group start with Big, Bad Bug

Mrs Reynold's phonics group start with Top Dog

Mrs Bush's phonic group start with By the Stream

 

If you have any problems with this please let us now by emailing the school.

This website has some great ideas for themed activities specially designed for EYFS pupils by well-known practitioners and authors.

Please have a look at the site and use some of the activities in addition to those that we have also uploaded. Remember there is no pressure to do a set number of activities each day and that we want all of you to enjoy your learning.

Take care and we will see you soon,

EYFS Team

 

This week we are going to be looking at the book, The Jolly Postman, by Janet and Allan Ahlberg.

We have included an online reading of the story and a few suggestions of things you can do at home.

Don't forget that you will have lots of your own ideas of how to grow your learning and can always let

us know what you have been doing when we see you again.
