Foundation Stage Weekly Newsletter

Puffins and Penguins Weekly Newsletter 5th October 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have had another busy and successful week. We have been very impressed with the children’s attitude to learning and their determination. We had a visit from Sally ‘the brush bus lady’ and she was very impressed with our tooth brushing technique.

This week we started exploring the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ and have created a story map with actions. We will be continuing this next week and hope to make our own bread.

In maths, we have been continuing to learn about how to partition numbers. We have been talking about the numbers 2, 3 and 4 and looking for patterns and making links.

In phonics next week we will be learning the sounds r, j, v, y, w. We will continue to learn how to say the sounds in a word and then blend sounds together. For example, “c-a-t…cat, b-a-d…bad”. We will use the magnetic boards to spell CVC words (consonant, vowel, consonant).

On Thursday 11th October it is mufti day and school disco. Please bring in £1 for mufti and £2 for the disco in a named envelope, or make a payment via the FOPPS Paypal account as advertised on their facebook page. Please collect your child after the disco at 4pm from the usual playground.

Please can we ask that all items of children’s clothing are named to avoid any mix-ups when changing for PE. Thank you!

Home learning challenge

  • Play a turn taking game and talk about taking turns and having to wait. This may be a game you have at home or you could just take turns to run around the garden, or eat grapes together. We would love you to stick a photo in your red home school link book or please just write down how you get on.

Many thanks, Mrs Yeo, Mrs Bastin and Mrs Clague
