Well Being afternoon - Ice-cream on the field, yum yum!

WC 28.06.2021 Visitors to EYFS! EYFS have had an amazing experience today! We had two very special visitors visit, Raven the lamb and Margret the chicken. Many thanks to our chair of governors Ms Dews for making this happen. The children thoroughly enjoyed this fantastic opportunity. They were able to feed both animals and get up close and personal which is a rare opportunity that they fully embraced. The children enquired and asked many questions to Charlie and Maisie the farmers and deepened their understanding of Farm to Fork and learning about life beyond Stainforth. Many thanks again Charlie, Maisie and Ms Dews.

What a fantastic first week back and what a great start to our summer term. We have enjoyed immersive afternoons, turning our classroom into a forest and grasslands. The beautiful sunshine has contributed to our learning environment as it has given us the experience of a relatively hot climate in which the dinosaurs lived.
We have learnt new vocabulary, read books, made predications, wrote sentences AND we have had such an exciting time as we have been fortunate to have an egg appear in our outdoor learning area! Is it going to hatch today? tomorrow? or next week? Who knows, but watch this space to find out when and what hatches from the egg!

What a fantastic first week back at school. It has been lovely having the children back in school and they have settled in really well. The children have followed routine and expectations, enjoyed spending time with their friends and have thoroughly enjoyed their PE day today, not only keeping their bodies healthy but their mind too!

We have considered how children's experiences over the last few months have affected them and what impact this may have had. We have looked at and discussed in detail 'The Colour Monster' This sensitive book encourages young ones to open up and discuss how they feel, even when their thoughts are confusing.

Please do not hesitate to ask me questions regarding your child and their education or if you require a general update on how your child/ren are doing. Please ask for Miss Tomlinson and I will ensure I make time to meet/speak with you. 

Many thanks!

We are looking forward to beginning our amazing learning journey with you all!

How parents can help



The phonics programme we follow is called Read Write Inc. (RWI). In reception we are beginning to blend sounds together to create words.

It is really important that the children practise blending sounds together to create words so please blend, blend, blend with your children at home. 

Playing simple listening games can help your children understand phonics a lot more. Asking your child 'Can you get your c-oa-t?' 'Sit on the ch-air.' etc. will help them understand 'fred talk' or 'sounding out'.

Below is a video to help you pronounce 'pure' sounds. 


Information for Parents: How to say the sounds

FS2 children enjoying lots of different phonic activities.



In FS2 we use pre-cursive handwriting.

Below is a copy of the pre-cursive traceable letters we use and a copy of rhyme cards we use to help your child remember correct letter formation.
