Welcome to Kites Class 2018/19

Week Commencing 17.09.18


This week the children will be finding out about their senses, talking about emotions, rules and why we have them at home and in school. They will be covering new sounds: d, g, o and k in phonics this week and will be practising number recognition, counting and comparing weight using balance scales. They will be making their first trip to the library on Monday afternoon and will finish the week off with a scavenger hunt for their Forest Friday activity.


Parent Workshop

There is a Parent workshop on Tuesday 18th September starting at 15.30 and being repeated at 16.30. We will be looking at the EYFS Curriculum, Letters and Sounds (Phonics) and talking about the Tapestry online learning Journal. If you are unable to make Tuesday we will gather and send all the handouts home and will upload the presentation to the class page to make sure you do not miss out!

Topic Web and information letter - Getting to know Me

Welcome to Kites class page! We have had a wonderful week welcoming back familiar faces and getting to know lots of new children and parents. The children have settled very quickly and are taking lots of changes and new routines in their stride. 


There have been many highlights this week which we will report on in more detail once we know which photos we can include. 


As well as lots of settling, exploring and establishing friendships and routines the children have demonstrated lots of their knowledge, skills and understanding. We will continue assessing the children as they engage in their learning in order to make on entry assessments and to plan effectively for their learning. 


I will email a link for the Online Tapestry Learning Journal soon. When it arrives please activate your account so you can view and add observations too. There will be an information workshop on the EYFS Curriculum, Letters and Sounds and Tapestry later this term and details will follow shortly.


The children have begun a short daily phonics input and have covered the sounds s, a and t this week.


Have a lovely restful weekend and we look forward to seeing the children again next week!
