Early Years Unit Newsletter
Summer Term 2
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to the start of the second Summer Term. We hope you had a lovely break. We are continuing for the first week with our topic entitled Where in the World is the World Cup? For the remainder of the term we will be introducing the topic entitled Can you help Harry find his dinosaurs?
The environment and staffing will continue to be organised to enable us to respond to the children’s interests immediately in order to gain the full value of each child’s curiosity and engagement. By skilfully meeting each child’s needs at the critical moment, learning and progress should take place.
If you have any resources that you are happy to share to support this topic we would be very grateful.
P.E. Kits for Reception
Please ensure that all items of kit-including pumps and the drawstring bag- are clearly labelled with your child’s name
Foundation Stage Fund
We would like to give a huge thank you to all the families who have been so generous and supported us by contributing to the fund last half term. The money enabled us to make pancakes, sample Chinese food; make fresh playdough each week including sensory and textured playdough; plant bulbs; enhance our mud kitchen. Please support your children again this half term by donating £5. Thank you to the parents who paid for the whole year.
Please could we ask you to ensure that all items of uniform including shoes, water bottles, lunch boxes and spare clothes bags are clearly labelled with your child’s name. Inevitably, items are put on the wrong peg, left in the classroom or accidently go home with the wrong child. Clear labelling allows the children to become independent and enables us to find items quickly and return them to their owner.
Outdoor Play Bag
Please ensure your child still has a waterproof coat each day for outdoor play.
It is very important that children wear a sun hat or cap when they are playing out at school. When it is sunny please make sure you apply an ‘All Day’ sun cream before your child comes to school.
