Thank you for all of the presents and cards that you have given us over the last few days. We are very lucky to have your support. It’s been a great year so far –  from the first play and stay, through to our Nativity and up to today’s last day of term.

Next term, our topic is ‘The Greatest Showman’ where we will be learning about all things circus related.
We would also like to invite parents and carers to our ‘story cafes’ (REK – 15.01.20 and RNM – 29.01.20). Come and share a story and a related activity with your child.

If anyone has any old tyres that they could donate to us for our outside area, please let us know.

Have a restful Christmas break and we will see you all in the new year!



What a great half term we have had!
All of the children have settled in so well and have made a positive start. It has been really great to hear so much positive feedback from the children and parents during our parent consultation meetings – thank you.
We have now covered all of the Phase 2 sounds. Please keep practising all of the accompanying actions, to keep them fresh in the children’s minds.
Next half term our topic, in the lead up to Christmas, is called “Let’s Celebrate!”
Thank you for all your support – it really is much appreciated.
Have a restful half term!


Super busy in EYFS!

Last week, we said goodbye to Mrs Doyle who has now left Bowmansgreen. Mrs Enus, who your children already know, is currently working with the EYFS team in the mornings.
This week, we have been working really hard on our phonics, learning and recapping the sounds.
We’ve also been learning how to blend, using our ‘robot arms.’ Ask your child to tell you about Metal Mike and how he can help us to blend sounds!
Finishing our timelines has also kept us very busy.
We have had fun learning how to blend colours to make our own skin tones. We have been reading the ‘Colours of Us,’ helping us to celebrate Black History Month.

Make sure you come and see our work at Curriculum Evening this Thursday!


Last week was a great week in Reception!

Children have been working hard on their Phase 2 phonics, learning the “m, d and g” letters and sounds as well as consolidating their SATPIN sounds. Can you find any of these sounds around your home?

The children loved sharing their home learning with their classmates and talking about what they did at home with you. Please remember that home learning is handed in on Tuesday. Reading books and library books are changed every Thursday.
A big ‘thank you’ to all parents choosing lunches with their children at home.
This week, will again share our weekend news and continue to make a time line from when the children were born to now. Can you please talk with your children about any significant events that have happened in their lifetimes i.e. little brother or sister being born, learning to ride a bike etc?
In phonics we will be learning the sounds “o, c and k”. In Maths we will be practising number recognition and our careful counting.
It promises to be another super week in EYFS!


It’s been a super busy week in EYFS! The children really enjoyed their Drama 4 All workshops on Wednesday, with everyone joining in and having fun!
This week we have been learning the p, i and n sounds and learning how to form the letters. We also made our family trees.  In Maths we have been consolidating our number recognition.
Next week, we will be making a timeline using pictures –  from baby pictures, to most recent. We will also be moving onto the m, d and g sounds in phonics.
We have given out Home Learning this week. If you are unsure of anything, come and see me. Home Learning is to be returned on Tuesday.
A huge ‘thank you’ to all of the parents who attended our parent workshop. We hope you found it useful. Please don’t worry if you missed the session – we will email the slides out to you.
