Welcome to

Great Casterton CE Primary School

Louis Armstrong

Welcome to Louis Armstrong Class

Term 3 

 

Welcome back to your third term of school. I hope you were all able to take the opportunity to relax and enjoy the festivities over the Christmas holiday, and that you are coming back refreshed and ready for a fun packed term.

 

 

This term our topic is based around Julia Donaldson stories.

 

We will enjoy listening to different stories by the author Julia Donaldson. Some of which you may already be familiar with and some maybe completely new.

 

 

This term we will be continuing with Phase 3 letters and sounds. We will continue with  blending and segmenting  words for early reading and writing. The children will continue bringing home high frequency and tricky word cards to practice.

 

Within our classroom this term the role play area is going to be a 'Zog the Flying Doctors' Surgery for animals. This will create super opportunities for purposeful mark making experiences.

Later on in the term we are hoping to have a visit to Fineshade Woods to take part in a Gruffalo trail. Information about this trip will follow shortly.

 

As always in EYFS we follow the children's interests and are excited to see where the topic takes us!

 

Our Christian Value this term is Friendship and our Learn to Learn Value is Respect. These values will be incorporated within the whole school day and are part of our focus during collective worships this term.

 

 

You will need to bring your book bag, water bottle and reading books, every day to help with your learning. 

You will also need your PE kit; you can leave that here all term.  Please can you bring a labelled warm waterproof coat, hat and gloves just in case the weather is chilly. 

 

Thank you

 

Mrs Hughes and Mrs Leddington

Transition through Foundation Stage: From Birth to Five

 

When our youngest children enter the reception class, they begin the final year of Foundation Stage ( Birth to Five). The Prime areas of Learning within the Foundation Stage are Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED), Communication and Language and Physical Development. Specific areas of learning are Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive arts and Design. Please refer to "What to expect throughout the Year" for further details.

 

We work closely with our feeder settings and with parents to ensure that any gaps in learning are identified and addressed on entry to school. This year, we have prioritised mathematics and writing as areas for specific, focussed intervention for individual children. September 2015 sees the introduction of a new baseline assessment which we will use, alongside the information which you give us about your child, to inform our priorities for the coming year.

What to expect throughout the year

 

 

Welcome to our Foundation Stage Class

Term 4

 

Welcome back after the half term break.

 

 I hope you all had a relaxing time and are ready for an exciting Term 4! Our topic this term is 'Spring'.

We will be spending time exploring the 4 seasons and different types of weather. We will be observing changes in the environment, life cycles, planting and growing. We will be having some eggs in our classroom to hatch out into chicks and will also be enjoying a trip to a farm to see the baby lambs. 

This term we will be continuing to learn our Phase 3 phonics. We will continue bringing sound cards home to practice, reading books, library books and high frequency words to learn. 

Within our classroom this term, there will be a garden centre and cafe role play area, along with an electronics exploratory area where we undo the screws to see what is inside.

 

Our topic is always led by the children's own interests and ideas so we are excited to see where our topic will lead !

 

Our Christian value this term is  'Forgiveness'. Our Learn to Learn value is 'Reflection'. 

 

You will need to bring your book bag, water bottle and reading books, every day to help with your learning. 

You will also need your PE kit; you can leave that here all term.  Please can you bring a labelled warm waterproof coat, hat and gloves as the weather has turned chilly. We like to go out in all weathers!

 

Thank you

 

Mrs Hughes and Mrs Leddington
