Welcome back! Our Topic this term is summer holidays. We have an exciting new role play area which is an airport! The children are taking it very seriously at the check in desk! We've made our own passports and boarding passes and are enjoying packing our suitcases. We have been writing holiday checklists and thinking about what we would take away with us. we have looked at the Light House Keeper's Lunch story and made our own pulley systems with the bricks, string and baskets as well as writing a story board. We will be looking at writing postcards and thinking about using language for time. We also be thinking about the weather and how for different climates we would pack different items!

Lets hope the sun is here to stay! Please ensure your child has sun cream applied before they come to school and if possible bring a named sun hat. Children have access to water throughout the day so water bottles aren't necessary.

Thank you to all who have contributed to class fund - any further donations would be gratefully received. £10.50 for this half term

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Heffernan, Mrs Smith-Burnand and Mrs Ogden-Leigh

This week is 'Well Being' Week with lots of things going on in school. Hopefully you will have seen the letter that went home last week and are able to join in with some of the activities. Our literacy focus will be writing about things we are grateful for which will be hung on the 'Gratitude Tree' with the rest of the schools contributions. Our maths focus will be centered around capacity which will see our water tray full of different sized measuring jugs and cylinders.

We will continue to practise for our Class Assembly which will take place on Friday 9th February at 2.30pm - please come along to watch what your little person has been learning about!

Friday 9th february - Sunray Showing Assembly

If you would like your little one to have wellies in school for the outdoor area please send a pair in to keep on their peg.

As we now have so many entrance/exit doors we aim to have these closed and locked by 9.10am and 3.30pm each day. It would help us greatly if you could support us by leaving the school building by these times each day - to ensure the safety of all children during the school day and whilst at after school club/activities.

You can contact me on our dedicated email address for any queries - receptionoldfieldbrow@yahoo.co.uk.

INDOOR PE KIT should be kept in school throughout the half term to be taken home for washing during the holidays.

Please make sure all items of UNIFORM and PE KIT are labelled clearly with your child's name.

It is also a good idea to regularly check your child’s hair for signs of HEADLICE - if you do find any please inform myself or Mrs Smith Burnand and we will send a letter home.

Learning Goals
Our topic this half term is Holidays. Ourrole play area is an airport!

Mrs Moody will be coming into class every Thursday morning to do guided writing with the class.

The children will be getting used to using the PC's and smartboard at school. They will spend some time playing on the 'busy things' website. This website is fantastic as it covers many areas of learning in the Foundation Stage and the children love it! If you would like your child to access the site whilst at home the login details are:-

username home9482
password balloon5477

Please make sure you make a comment in the reading record each time your child brings a book home so we know it has been read and they can take home a different book.

Homework books will be sent home every Wednesday and should be returned on Monday. The tasks set will either be creative, practical, a discussion or something that needs to be recorded in your child’s book. Homework is given to build on your child’s development, giving you an idea of what we have been learning about in the classroom and gives opportunity for you to have fun engaging in your child’s learning.

Thank you for your support.
