FS Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Goldilocks and The Three Bears

Wow, what a busy and full week it has been! Your children have all done so well for their first full week at school and will probably be quite tired!

We have been focusing on the story of ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’, which is a very popular story with the children. We have enjoyed pretending to be Goldilocks and tasting some delicious porridge. Luckily it was neither too hot or too cold but was just right!

The children are starting to get used to our routines in school and are becoming very good at washing their hands. We have also been practising our listening ears and looking eyes when sitting on the carpet. During independent learning, the children are becoming confident with navigating around the different spaces where they’ve been cooking up food in the role-play kitchen, threading beautiful necklaces and making multi-coloured collages.

Please have a look at the Home Learning that has been attached to find some fun activities to do at home, including a Goldilocks song that we have learnt.

A few reminders:

  • Please could you check that your child’s uniform and any bags are named.
  • We are asking for £3 contributions towards buying ingredients for cooking. These can be made via the School Gateway app (if your child is in Reception) or put in a pot outside Nursery (if your child is in Nursery)
  • We are collecting recyled materials for our junk modelling station. Ideally we would like small boxes, washed yoghurt pots and small containers. Please can we ask that any recycled material that previoulsy had nut products inside do not come in due to allergies that we have in school. Please could the items be brought in a bag and labelled, if possible, with the date they are brought in.

Thank you J

A Foundation welcome!

Welcome to the Foundation stage.

It has been lovely to welcome back the children that were with us last year and all our new families after a very strange 6 months.

Your children have been a real credit to themselves and to you. They have settled quickly to the routines and rules of our Foundation Unit and have adapted to the necessary changes that we have put in place. We have been discussing the need for social distancing; the fact that we can not hold hands with our friends, give ‘high- fives’ or sit close. Also the need for good hand washing; ( a clip to support this can be found at “How to wash your hands”- NHS song). Talking about these things and reinforcing them at home would be a good way to support your child over the weekend.

Within our day we have been painting; exploring the outside; constructing; and listening to and retelling the lovely story ‘Owl Babies’.

We are looking forward to next week when we read the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. Have a restful weekend!
