Some photos from today's Celebration Assembly! Well done to all the children who completed their star charts this week and who had WOW moments to share with us. Don't forget you can find WOW cards on the EYFS pages of the website, or pick one up from the classroom!
A big thank you to Charlie's Mum, Emma, who came in on Thursday afternoon to do some art with the children. Emma will be with us every week so all the children will get the opportunity to be creative with her!
Mrs Zucchi is looking forward to seeing you all at the Parent Consultations this coming week. If you haven't booked a slot yet please speak to a member of the team!
Best Wishes, The EYFS Team
We were so proud of all the Hedgehogs yesterday after a fantastic Harvest Assembly - it was the first time they'd been into the main hall with the rest of the school, but there were no nerves on show! They got up, faced their audience and sang and performed beautifully! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Another week has passed, and we have been celebrating the new season by making vegetable soup and taking a lovely walk to collect the treasures that Autumn brings.
Every Friday afternoon we have a Celebration Assembly with a chance to share WOW cards, completed star charts and more - the children love the opportunity to come up to the front and talk about their successes! Friday afternoon also often sees us enjoying Disco Friday - it's a fun way to finish off the week and a great reward for all their hard work!
We hope you enjoy the pictures!
Have a great week
The EYFS Team
We are really pleased to be able to share some photos with you to show how your children have been settling into their new learning environment and making great use of all the resources!
In the past few weeks we have made the most of the weather (when it's been good!) with lots of outdoor opportunities - den building, PE games, building with the bricks and blocks, enjoying the mud kitchen - and so much more! We were lucky enough to join KS1 on the school field looking at a range of different vehicles which kick-started their 'Wheels and Wings' topic - the children loved looking at and climbing over them!
Inside we have started whole-class phonics and the children have been impressing with their knowledge. We used scarves to practice letter formation, have re-enacted The Enormous Turnip, baked bread (just like The Little Red Hen!), and practised number recognition and counting using number lines, numicon and fun songs and dances.
We are all looking forward to the Harvest Assembly on Monday 7th October - and hope to see you there! We will upload some photos on here afterwards so if you can't make it you will still have the chance to see your child in action.
With best wishes
The EYFS Team
12 September 2019
It has been a privilege to start to get to know your children over this last week and a half. I am sure you must be so proud of the way they have adapted to the new learning environment. Parent meetings over the last week have also been helpful in gaining an understanding of the individual children. If you have not yet had an opportunity to meet with me and would like to, please let me know. There is an open-door policy, so please feel free to make an appointment at any time.
The first homework will go out this Friday and is simply a book covering exercise, allowing the children to decorate their books as they choose.
I would also like to request a photo of your nuclear family at home, if possible, to create a family tree project. This can simply be a photocopy of an existing picture if that is easier. We are also looking at a focus on reading in the next little while and if you could send a photo of your child with his or her favourite book, or even reading in a favourite place, it will make it more fun.
The children are showing themselves ready and keen to learn and play and we are all looking forward to the year ahead.
Please keep checking this page for updates of what we have been doing in Hedgehogs Class - and what is to come! We hope to update it at least every fortnight and will include lots of photos so you can see your children enjoying their learning environment!
