Parents Meeting

Dear Parents,

Please be aware the last school Newsletter included information about the upcoming parents meetings. I have received some slips but not many.
Please read the information on the newsletter and return your requested day and time slot. The day time slots are an extra 5 minutes longer, you might feel this extra time might be more beneficial to you if you have lots you wish to discuss.

Slots fill up quickly. As much as I do try to accommodate your request please be aware some times are more popular than others.

Read the Newsletter here. Newsletter 22nd October 2015

This week in the mornings there will be some slips for you to complete for the meetings if you need one. There will also be an email list for you to put your email on so I can send you a copy of your child’s observations so far. You will need to see this before the meeting so you are aware of their progress against their Early Learning Goals.

Here is a short guide that might be useful to new parents regarding the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). EYFS_Parents_Guide. If you have any questions this may be able to help you to answer them or help you to come with questions to ask.

Below is a link that will send you to the Government website that has exemplification material for what children should be expected to achieve by the summer term. These are good to read to see where your child has to work. During the meeting I will discuss with you how your child is progressing towards these goals and what you can do to support them at home.

EYFS exemplification for Early Learning Goals

As always any questions please come and ask me.

Kind regards

Miss Irwin



A finished Igloo and the Grand Opening of the Mud Kitchen

On Friday we invited our families into class in the afternoon to see our houses that we had built, to look in our clever Cat books and to see our Igloo and mud kitchen.

What a way it was to finish our topic on Buildings with a finished Igloo. It’s only taken Class Jonah, Miss Kippen, Miss Beaumont, Miss Bono, Miss Robinson, Mrs Holford and Miss Irwin 6 weeks to make but it’s finally finished and guess what, you can fit a almost all of Class Jonah inside it at one time!

Thank you to everybody who helped us collect the milk cartons to make this big Igloo.

After we looked at our Igloo and tried it out we went to do the official opening of the Mud Kitchen. Which has been very kindly been made by Mr Holford with the help of Mr Aimes. We had kind donations of pots, utensils and appliances from parents and staff. Mr Holford was there to cut the ribbon with Maddie and Georgette, we all then went up to have a look. We love our mud kitchen and our sign-thank you Mr Holford. We cant wait to start back after half term and to choose in there.

We have all worked exceptionally hard this term and we should be very proud of the journeys we have made in our learning so far. But now it’s time for a well deserved rest.

We hope you all have a very nice half term and don’t get blown away in the blustery wind.
Miss Irwin and Miss Kippen.

Parents Afternoon- Thursday 28th February

This afternoon we had some of Class Jonah’s Mummies and Daddies come in and spend some time with us.

We told them what we were learning in our topic and  that this week we were learning about skeletons. We showed them our Skeleton Dance.

To practise our Doctors and Nurses skills, mummies and daddies had to pretend they had something wrong with them and we had to guess what it was.

We put our work uniforms on and set to solving our patients ailments. Some parents got more injuries and illnesses diagnosed than they originally went into the Doctors with!! Mrs Brammeld had a sore ear but got her other ear, jumper and knee diagnosed also. Evie’s mummy had a sore finger but also had her mouth and nose plastered as she needed to stop talking as much-thanks Nurse Savannah for spotting this! 🙂 Becky’s mummy had a cold and Fahren’s Dad had a lot of injuries to his head and that was to name but a few. We made sure we gave some good advise like resting their legs and knees that were hurting and to keep the bandages on for 10 days and 10 nights.

After the surgery we showed mummies and daddies  what we like to play with in our learning environment. Then after playtime we had reading time which we really enjoyed.

Thank you to all the parents who came today we had lots of fun, we hope you did too!
