Foundation Stage - Duckling Class
Class Teacher: Miss E Winwick
Teaching Assistants: Mrs L Tasker, Miss R Goodwin and Mrs Phillips
PE Days: Monday and Thursday
PE kits must consist of either a black school PE top, or a plain white t-shirt with black shorts. Suitable footwear must be worn. Children may wear a plain black tracksuit for outdoor PE.
We advise bringing PE kits in to School on Monday and leaving these at school all week as PE days may change. PE kits will be sent home with your child on a Friday.
Music Day: Friday
Home Learning: We expect that all children read at home regularly, a minumum of 3 times a week. Reading books are changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday to allow for children to read the same book more than once. This allows them to build confidence and fluency in their reading.
Learning Logs will also be sent home on a Friday. These will include a Phonics task (new sounds/tricky words from Phonics that week) and a curriculum based activity (either an extension of our learning or a preparation activity for new learning). Homework is to be completed by the following Wednesday.
Tapestry: All parents should now be active on Tapestry. Please upload observations from home alongside homework tasks. If you have any queries regarding Tapestry, please see Miss Winwick.
Autumn Term Topics: Marvellous Me/ Real Life Superheoroes and Amazing Autumn/ Winter Wonderland
Spring Term Topic: Roll Up, Roll Up! and Go Wild
Summer Term Topics: Under the Sea
Daisy Duck: Our class mascot, Daisy, will be sent home on a Friday with our 'Child of the Week'. Please record Daisy's adventures in her diary and return her to school by the following Wednesday at the latest. Photographs can be uploaded on to Tapestry or printed and stuck into her diary.
Other Useful Information
Please provide your child with a pair of wellington boots that can be kept at school. This will ensure that all children are able to use the outdoor area come rain or shine!
Please ensure all items of school uniform and PE Kit's are clearly labelled with your child's name to avoid these going missing. This also includes water bottles and lunch boxes.
