Welcome toThrybergh Fullerton C of E Primary Academy

EYFS - Mrs Stabler

Welcome to the Summer Term in Foundation

 

 

Hello my name is Mrs Marlow and I will be the teacher in the EYFS, while Mrs Stabler is on maternity leave. 

 I am really looking forward to our new topic this term but mostly I am looking forward to getting to know all the wonderful children and families in early years and throughout school. I look forward to working with you this year so that together we can make sure your child is as happy as possible and achieve their full potential.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or one of the amazing EYFS team. 

 

 

Our topic for the Summer Term is

Do dragons exist?

 

Beyond this place, there be dragons! Do dragons exist? What’s it like to live in a castle? It’s time to explore the fantastical world of dragons and castles. This half term, will we find a medieval sword or a dragon’s footprint? We’ll identify the different parts of a castle and learn about the people and animals who lived there. We’ll move like dragons and unearth dragon eggs from the sand. What will we find inside? We’ll dress up in royal finery and as knights, sticking to the knight’s code by working together and being kind. In our literacy lessons, we’ll create and label castle picture cards and identify rhyming words in dragon poetry. In our maths lessons, we’ll count gold coins into numbered dragon jars and move brave miniature knights from 1–20. Can we stick to the correct order? Getting creative, we’ll draw dragons, try out some hoop weaving and make a friendly dragon to protect our classroom. Roar! At the end of the project, we’ll come to school in castle-themed fancy dress and carry out our duties: making bread, sweeping hay in the stables and polishing silver in the great hall!

 

Help your child prepare for their project

Dragons are roar some! Why not gather together a collection of books about dragons and curl up somewhere comfy to read? You could also visit the library together to research mythical beasts. Dragons breathe fire and can fly, but what can other mythical beasts do? Alternatively, make a dragon collage out of materials you have at home.

Home learning

 

  • Foundation one children will have a school library book for you to share at home with your child. Every Monday your child will bring home a new library book. Please return them to school on a Friday so we can quarantine these over the weekend.
  • Foundation two children will bring home two reading books, one is a book banded book for you to share together with your child, and they will also have a sound blending book which is carefully matched to their phonic level.  Your child will have a pack of key words that they are currently working on. Please return all books to school on a Friday for quarantining. Children are encouraged to develop their love of reading by using books, magazines and reading resources from home during the weekend.
  • The children are expected to read at home at least four times a week. Please remember to write in your child’s reading planner if you listen to your child read, as they are rewarded in school for reading at home.



 

Our routines and reminders:

 

  • Our PE session will be every Wednesday. Your child can come to school wearing their school PE kit. Please make sure it is suitable for our outdoor PE sessions.

 

  • Thank you to all of you who have been bringing book bags every day. It is really important to bring them to school every day so we can send home new letters and any of the children’s pictures or work, as well as their school reading books and planners.

 

  • Can you please send your child to school with a spare change of clothes, pants, socks, trousers/skirt as accidents occur and it’s helpful if your child has their own clothes to change into. Please leave them in a bag on their peg and please make sure all items are labelled.

 

  • Can you please send a pair of wellies for your child to keep at school, to use in our mud kitchen and digging area. 

 

  • You can send pictures through class Do Jo, to share your child’s achievements from home. These contribute to your child’s assessment and are a vital part of the progress your child will make. This is an opportunity for us to hear about and celebrate your child’s home achievements.

 

  • Show and tell will be every Friday. Due to the current situation we are unable to have any objects brought into school. You can send a photo through class Do Jo of your child and their chosen object to share at show and tell. This could be a toy, photo, certificate or special object. This will help develop the children’s communication and language skills, as well as their confidence to speak in a familiar group.

 

Thank you for entrusting your child to us this year. We promise to do our best each day to guide your child in exploring and learning, as well as helping them to feel safe and valued.

 

Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions please see one of the foundation team or send a message through our class Do Jo page, we are always here to help and support you.
