We are all super excited to have you return to school after such a long time at home. We have a mix of children who came to our nursery and new friends who have just joined us from other places, in time to start a fantastic year in reception .
Since COVID and the subsequent lockdown we have had some exciting developments both indoors and outside. A castle,bridge,a huge sandpit,a road map and a new playhouse have all been built! Just ready for hours of endless fun! Our indoor environment has had some changes too.We will now all be using the whole of our reception area. Our areas of learning have been spread out to give you much more space to explore and learn.
Another new exciting step on our journey together is the fact that we are one of eight schools in the whole of Sandwell that have chosen to adopt the brand new EYFS framework a year early.
Due to COVID we will be focusing our first term on all of the learning experiences that you would have had in Nursery. Our theme is Our community. We will be learning all about being good friends,forming friendships and belonging to a community.
We will be developing our fine motor skills, learning the true meaning of numbers, counting out objects and recognising numbers. We will be listening for the sounds that objects start with and learning what those sounds look like.
It is going to be an awesome year and we can’t wait to begin on our learning journey together!
