Welcome to Foundation
Mrs Stone is the class teacher in the Ducklings and Mrs Jones is the class teacher in the Chicks.
Miss Catt and Mrs Murray are working with us this year as well. .
Mrs Hathaway is with us on a Wednesday.
Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate Chinese New Year with us. We had a fantastic evening with lots of our families who joined in with activities and shared a meal together. Everyone had an attempt at using chopsticks (even though some people needed a fork to make things easier)
Next term our topic will be 'Once Upon A Time'
Term 4 will be very busy, we will be finding out about some traditional fairy stories, we will be joining with the rest of the school for World Book Day and we will be taking part in Science week.
During Science week we are hoping to have a trip and will also be hosting our Sponsored Scoot to raise money for some new resources to use in garden.
During term 4 we will be continuing to start our days with some tasks which we will need to come in to complete. Please encourage the children to head to their morning table and to make a start on their task.
A reading book will be sent home along with a reading record for parents to complete.
If children are working with books from within our reading scheme they must do the work and complete the reading.
Children are expected to read at least 4 times each week. Anyone who reads at least 4 times during the week will receive a special sticker. Children who receive a sticker each week for the whole term will receive a certificate at the end of term .
Homework will be sent home on a Tuesday to be completed and handed back in on the following Monday. These will be challenges to keep you all busy at home. Please support us with these tasks to help your child extend their learning.
ALL CHILDREN SHOULD BE WORKING ON THEIR PHONICS FLASHCARDS AND ON LEARNING THEIR TRICKY AND HIGH FREQUENCY WORDS.
The children should be working towards being able to read and write the letters and words independently.
