This class is supported by Miss Hallett, Mrs Reitzner, and Mrs Farrell.

The early years curriculum is based on learning through exploration and play. There are a number of ways you can help your child to learn and make good progress:

 

  • Sharing and enjoying books together at home.
  • Point out numbers and letters in your house and in your local area. 
  • Count at every opportunity - eg when walking up the stairs/counting out fruit in the shops.
  • Talk to your child about the world around them and encourage them to ask questions.
  • Ask your child what he / she has been doing in school.
Things to bring into school:
 
  • Spare underwear and socks (we sometimes get wet feet if we are playing outdoors in the puddles)
  • Welly boots and puddle suits (please use warm waterproof jackets in the winter)
  • Spare clothes
  • Sun hats and suncream when the weather is warm and sunny
  • Hats and gloves when the weather is cold
  • Water bottle
  • Lunch (if your child is staying for lunch)
  • It is not necessary to provide a snack as the school will provide fruit each day in the morning and afternoon
  • PLEASE LABEL EVERYTHING
