This term our topic is:
Is It Shiny?

This half term our topic is titled ‘Is it shiny?’ We will be learning about shiny things and things that glow in the dark. We will look at reflections and light. With Christmas on the way, there will be lots of glitter, sparkles, gems and treasure hunting! We will also look at the ways that Christmas is celebrated in different places. For our Memorable experience, a cheeky elf had hidden all of our shiny things! Luckily we found them outside and managed to collect them in our treasure chest!

Welcome to Foundation 1

Physical Education

The children have PE in the hall with a sports coach every Monday, from January. They will stay in their uniform for these sessions. Earrings must not be worn on PE days. If your child has newly pierced ears, please inform the school office and fill out a permission slip.

Library books

Every Monday your child will choose a new Library book. This is for both you and your child to enjoy and read together. Please remember to return the book every week so they can choose a new book to ensure they are developing a positive attitude to a wide range of texts.


Wow Moments

We would love to hear about any recent achievements, news, or exciting activities that you and your child have been up to at home. In the cloakroom area is our WOW board. Please write any exciting things you would like to share with us on a slip located in the packet on the board. You can also pop to the office and fill in a slip. This will be shared in achievement assembly on a Friday.


Rhyme of the week

Each Monday a new rhyme will be introduced to the children. Your child will bring home a copy of the rhyme for you to practise at home. We will repeat the rhyme each day.

100 things to do before you're 6!

We have sent home a list of '100 things to do before you're 6!' These are fun things that give you some great ways to get everyone in the family involved in having some fun. We would love to see your selfies of you and your child enjoying the some of these activities. Please see the file below for the list. How many can you do? (This has been taken from Shonette Bason-Wood at Spread the Happiness.)

Fun Fridays

Each Friday your child will be taking part in fun activities. For example we might be baking, going on walks around the field, doing large scale art or messy play.


We read 'The Rainbow Fish' and made playdough fish with gems.


We made firework pictures to celebrate Bonfire night.


We found all of the missing shiny things that the cheeky elves took!
