Meerkats Class - Foundation Stage 1
Welcome to the Foundation Stage 1- Meerkats class! I am the class teacher, Mrs Woolley is our nursery nurse and Mrs Brown is our teaching assistant. In Nursery, we encourage our children to be enthusiastic and eager to learn. Our provision is highly stimulating and provides rich and imaginative experiences for all children. Each half term is linked to a child centered topic that enhances the children's development in all areas of the EYFS.
Our staff strongly believe that it is important for parents to contribute to their child’s learning and development. Follow us on Twitter @SunnyfieldsEYFS for regular updates throughout the day. Please tweet us with photographs and special moments outside of school. We really do enjoy seeing what the children get up too!
Each half term we will be sending a topic web home with details about what the children are going to be learning. We will also send a homework booklet that will encourage your children to engage with our topics at home as well as in school. As well as these homework tasks, we encourage you to read as much as possible with your child at home.
Usually your child will bring home a new book every day for you to share with them, however due to the ongoing COVID 19 situation we are unable to send books home at the moment. As soon as the guidance is reviewed we will go back to our normal practice of sending books home. In the meantime please access the free Oxford Owl website for age appropriate books to share with your child.
This half term’s topic will be ‘All about us!’ where we will be learning about our bodies, our families and ourselves. This topic will also allow the children to settle into the school environment and develop their confidence.
The staff in nursery are always more than happy to speak to you before or after your child’s session! If you have any queries or would like support with home learning, please come and see us.
Mr. MacConnachie - Nursery Teacher
