Solent Infant School
Welcome to Year R
Welcome to the Year R Home Page

Firstly, we would like to say well done for all of your super home learning so far this term. We really look forward to welcoming you all back to school.
This term will see the children building upon the foundations that they have established since joining us in September. Our theme for the half term is ‘Rainbow Fish’. This topic will enable us to engage with lots of exciting learning opportunities and will support the children in developing and maintaining lots of positive relationships as they return to school. You will be able to find more details about our learning in the Year R curriculum overview on our school website.

Exciting News
There have been a few exciting changes to the Outdoor Learning Environment over the past few weeks and we cannot wait for you to see what we have been up to. We have lots of fabulous new toys and resources for the children to explore. We know how much they love outdoor learning and we are sure they will love what we have done. We would like to thank the FSS for funding our new storage as it has helped to transform the area.

Science Week
As you return to school on Monday 8th March, we will be celebrating British Science Week 2021. This is celebrated nationally by schools all over the country. We will be taking part in lots of amazing science experiments throughout the week. You might like to continue this at home by taking part in some of your own experiments too.

Home Learning
As the children return to school, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support with home learning. We will be returning to uploading our weekly home learning tasks on Tapestry for you to enjoy at home. Please also continue to support your child in learning their flashcards at home.
We would also like you remind you about the new and exciting Big Cat E-library. We hope that you have all had a chance to explore this and are enjoying the books they have to offer. Please do contact the school office if you are having any difficulties with your log-in details.

Year R PE Days
Our PE Day will continue to be Thursday. Please ensure that your child arrives at school in their PE kit on Thursday each week. Please also ensure that long hair is tied back and earrings are either removed or covered over on these days. As with all items, please ensure that all of your child’s PE Kit is clearly labelled.


Reminder
If you have any messages for the class teacher, please contact the school via the ‘Contact Us’ tab on the school website, or by phone if urgent, and the office team will ensure that your message gets to the class teacher.
