If you would like to discuss how your child is doing at school or to ask a classroom specific question (eg a lost jumper etc...) please feel free to email Miss Probyn using the class email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't forget you can also use Tapestry as a way to communicate with the EYFS team.
If your query relates to something other than classroom matters, for example: dinners, payments, events, please continue to contact the office via telephone or the admin email address, thank you.
Tapestry- Remember to check Tapestry regularly it is updated all of the time. Don't forget we love to see what you have been up to too :-)
The children will be taught how to recognise, read and write lots of different sounds this year. We use a Government Validated Scheme called the 'Song of Sounds'. The children love learning all of the actions and singing the song... why not ask them to sing it for you- click on the PowerPoint link for the music and pictures to help.
This year the children will be taught how to read and spell these words:
There are lots of great ways to practice reading and writing them, why not try…?
- Have a word hunt around the house
- Play word pairs or snap
- Practice writing them in sand, glitter, shaving foam
- Look for them in the environment
- Letters on milk bottle lids and putting them in order to spell
- Writing them with chalk on the pavement
- Making them with playdough

Happy reading 📖
In our math's lessons we are continuously building upon our current skills and fostering new ones, which we then apply through fun and practical experiences.
To help practice Maths skills at home please watch Numberblocks and log in to play Numbots.
