Welcome to Nightingales
Just like that, we appear to be venturing into the last week of the children's time in Foundation. The children are very excited for our upcoming production of Mary Poppins this week and have been very busy practising their dance and all of the songs.
Please note, as the end of term is fast approaching we are collecting in all of the reading books and therefore, no more books will be sent home this term. Please use reading eggs, to support your child's reading at home (login details can be found in the front of your child's partnership diary.)
Star of the week: Rosemary for having a great attitude to learning.
Dojo Winner: Archie S
W/C: Monday 5th July 2021
Literacy and Topic
This week the children will be thinking about their favourite memories of their time in foundation, through class discussion and looking back through photos of our journey together. In preparation for transition week, the children will be s starting to think about what they're looking forward to most about moving up to year one. The children will also be continuing to practise their class dance and songs for the whole school production next week.
This week the children will be recapping previously taught sounds from set 1 and set 2. As well as being introduced to new sounds from set 3. They will also be practising their letter formation of the different sounds.
This week the children will be blending sounds to read CVC words and revising red words. As well as being introduced to new "alien words".
This week the children will continue to explore measure, in the form of weight, height and capacity. They will learn how to use mathematical language to describe and compare different weights, lengths and capacities.

Now that we are all back into the swing of being back in school, I would like the children to get back to writing/drawing about their weekend news in their homework books. These will be sent home every Thursday and will be due back in every Tuesday. This will allow all children the opportunity to share with the rest of the class their weekend news.
Set: Thursday 1st July
Due: Tuesday 6th July
