Foundation Stage Newsletter Term 6 - On the Farm

9th June 2017

Dear Parents and Carers,

Foundation Stage Newsletter Term 6

Our Themes

This term our topic is ‘On the Farm’. Our focus areas within the topic are going to be:

12.6.17 – Down on the Farm – Farmer Duck

19.6.17 – Down on the Farm – The Pig in the Pond

26.6.17 – I am a Farmer – What the Ladybird Heard

3.7.17 – Why do we have farms? – The Little Red Hen

10.7.17 – Why do we have farms? – Non-fiction books

In Literacy we will be looking at a variety of different farm story books, sequencing them, retelling them and writing some of our own farm stories. In Maths we will be focusing on 3D shape, capacity and problem solving.

We are going to be having weekly circle time sessions to discuss the feelings associated with change. Some of the topics that we are going to be thinking about are what the children could do at the start of their time in the Foundation Stage and what they can do now. Also we will be looking forward and discussing some of the changes that are going to be taking place in September when the children move into Year 1.

Warmer Weather

Thank you to those of you who have sent your child into school with a sun hat and a water bottle. Please continue to ensure that on sunny days your child brings in a suitable sun hat and that they bring a named water bottle with them every day.

General Reminders

Please ensure that all of your child’s school clothing is clearly labelled. WOW moments are available in each cloakroom area. Please continue to fill these in to help us to celebrate your child’s achievements.

School Fete – Maypole Dancing

We have sent home letters to ask whether you will be attending the School Fete on June 24th. The children in Reception will be Maypole Dancing. Please return the slip to us as soon as possible so that we know whether your child is going to be taking part in the Maypole Dancing at the school fete.

As ever please do not hesitate to speak to a staff member regarding any concerns or questions you may have.

Let’s have a great term!

Joseph Rubba, Kristie Ellery and all the FSU team.
