Autumn Days

Published on Wednesday 3 October 2018 by Miss Roberts.

Where has the hot weather gone? We have been so excited exploring outside over the last few days and have noticed different changes. The weather is darker, windier, colder and even raining! This has not stopped us from going outside. Mr Storey created a fun game where we became crabs using 'Tommy Thumb' and 'Peter Pointer'. We had to pick up leaves and sticks using just those fingers. Look at what we picked up...

We are really looking forward to the weather changing and can't wait to find more conkers and pine cones! Autumn has definitely arrived.

As the weather is getting wetter please feel free to send your child in with wellies and put their name inside.

Phonics Homework

Published on Tuesday 25 September 2018 by Mr Storey.

As you will be aware the children have started to bring home sounds as homework. The children bring home the sounds they have learned during the week and should hopefully have a good understanding of how to pronounce and form them. We would like the children to practice their pronunciation of the sound and also try and create words. For example s-a-t was sent home as they are our first three sounds. Can your child recognise the sound and blend the sounds together to say the word sat.

We are consistently teaching phonics in school and thought this would be a great opportunity for the children to have further consolidation of what they have learned in school. If you have any other questions please ask a member of the EYFS team and we would be happy to help.

Published on Tuesday 18 September 2018 by Miss Roberts.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our 'Stay and Play' day today. It was lovely to see so many parents and family members at school today.

The children had a lovely time showing you their trays, pegs and classrooms. It has been a busy couple of weeks settling into school life. The children have settled in well and now that you have seen their environment, we hope this will help them to continue to thrive.

Wow, a massive well done to all the children for an amazing week as they begin their school journey at Crook Primary School. The EYFS staff have been shocked at how well the children have settled into the unit and look engrossed in their play from the get-go.

The children have shown resilience and confidence as they accessed the provision allowing the staff to get some wonderful observations highlighting how imaginative they are. We have had children making pirate treasure maps, children becoming Archaeologist and even children creating their own car wash.

Well done to all the children on a great start!
