Monday, 18th November

Linking to our work on nocturnal animals our shared text this week is the Gruffalo. 

We have lots of exciting provision planned around this theme such as making Gruffalo crumble outside, sequencing the story and writing in a Gruffalo cave. The children have been working hard with their letter formation and have updated our writing wall by writing words and some simple sentences.  Our vocabulary words this week are rhyme, setting and combination. 

This week the children will be getting changed for their PE sessions and we are looking forward to meeting our new sports coach.  Please ensure a full PE kit is in school during the week. 

We have started to learn the songs for our Christmas performance.  Please bring in named costumes also in a named bag. If you have any difficulty sourcing items for a costume please talk to one of the EYFS staff.

We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday, 26th November we will be holding a phonics workshop at 2.45pm.  This is a fantastic opportunity to find out about phonics and how you can support your child with early reading.  We would love to see as many parents as possible at this event so please make a note of the date.
