Dear Parents and Carers,

As the children embark on their final term in Year R, we are delighted to announce our first learning theme of the Summer Term, ‘Get up and Grow’. This will see the children exploring lifecycles of insects and plants and we will be continuing to discuss how we grow and change. They will develop their information writing, apply their observation skills and discuss similarities and differences. Once we enter the second half of the summer term, we will enjoy a range of interesting events, as the children begin to make the transition into Year One. We are so looking forward to our whole school trip to Queen Elizabeth Country Park and can’t wait for Sports Week too!

Weekly Home Learning

We will continue to send weekly home learning through your child’s Tapestry account, with some recommended activities to help further support that week’s learning at home - including our ‘Family Fun Challenge.’ ‘Share at Home books’ will continue to be sent home each week, along with your child’s chosen library book. These books are reading for pleasure books to be shared together. Please ensure you access Big Cats online for your child’s Reading Practise Book. This term, we will be asking you to comment on their Big Cats Reading Practise Book on the home reader sheet in bookbags.

Year R PE Days

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

Warmer Weather

With the warmer weather coming our way, we kindly request that all sun hats and other items of summer clothing are named. On sunnier days, please apply sun cream to your child before they come to school, to protect them when we are spending time outside. Throughout the summer, a named sports-cap water bottle is invaluable as the children will be encouraged to drink plenty and refill them throughout the day if necessary.

Thank you

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. If you have any messages for the class teacher, please contact the school via the ‘Contact Us’ tab on the school website. You can also leave a message with the designated member of staff in the main school playground or by phone, if urgent, and the office team will ensure that your message gets to the class teacher.
