Foundation Stage Weekly Newsletter

Puffins and Penguins Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,

This week we have been linking our learning to the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We have been reading and re-telling the story and writing our own versions.  Next week we will become scientists, finding out exactly what plants need to grow. We will be growing sunflowers, beans, and also investigating the parts of a plant.

In maths we have been focussing hard on saying the number that is one more than and one less than, some of us are finding this very difficult so any practise at home would be very beneficial.

As our weather is so unpredictable it is really important that the children are prepared for all weathers at this time of year. Please put suncream on your children at the beginning of the day, this should last all day. However if it is particularly sunny you may send in a small container of sun-cream (labelled) to keep in school. Please send in a sunhat labelled with a name. All children need to bring a coat or rain jacket with them to school everyday as the weather can change during the day and the children can be outside a lot.  

Next week your children will have new targets please help your child to achieve the next steps in their learning by helping them with these.

Ideas for supporting your child’s learning at home this week.

  • Finding one more/less e.g. if I have 15 raisins and I eat one how many will I have?
  • Read a traditional story – can you draw a picture of one of the characters and write some words or sentences about them.
