Summer Term 2024 -

This term we will be learning all about 'People Who Help Us' and then moving onto learning about the Olympics. During this topic, we will be inviting a range of people from our community, into school to teach the children about their jobs. The children will be exploring their senses and how each sense has a different role. We will also be discovering which foods keep us healthy and designing a healthy snack. During the Olympic topic the children will explore where France is and explore the different sporting events. It is set to be a busy, yet fun end to our school year. 


What happens in Progression Step 1?

When the children are not working with an adult, they have access to the continuous and enhanced provision. These areas are carefully planned for and are enriched with challenges to support the skills that the children are learning. We have a member of staff to nurture and support the children during their time in the continuous provision challenging and asking questions. We also have a wonderful outdoor area which is part of our continuous provision.


When will Forest school take place?

Weekly sessions every Friday for both classes.

We will be running these sessions come rain or shine and so it would be great for children to have their wellies and waterproof trousers/clothing in school each week so that they can always take part in these outdoor activities. Please send in spare clothes on these days, including socks. We will send these home again at the end of the session. Please can you ensure that all items are labelled clearly. 


Important information:

  • P.E. Sessions on Tuesday (Children to bring in their P.E kits please to change into) - Nursery
  • P.E. Sessions on Monday (Children to bring in their P.E kits please to change into) - Reception
  • Forest school - every Friday
  • Snack - fresh fruit or vegetables to be brought to school daily please in a labelled container.  Grapes must be cut in half. Please ensure containers and drinks bottles are labelled. 
  • Please ensure all items of clothing, including shoes are labelled clearly. 



Developing a love for reading...

In Progression Step 1 we aim to ignite children's love of reading through an inviting reading corner for the children to choose books that interest them, explore how to hold stories as a reader and retell familiar stories using stick puppets and props. The children will build their early reading skills through sharing stories, songs and rhymes together, as well as building their talking and listening skills. We will introduce a 'sound of the week' keep you informed of this sound at the end of the week with a small homework task uploaded to Seesaw for a.m. Nursery. We hope you will support us and go through the sound at home too.
