Welcome to F1 


Some how we have reached our final half term, where has the year gone?  The next few weeks will be jam packed with lots of learning, but also sports day, graduation and of course our class trip to Church Farm.  Some of our children will be getting ready to move onwards to F2, while our younger children will soon be the older children in the class
This half term we will be thinking about summer, beaches and linked to our trip, animals.  We will start the half term by looking at the book 'Grandmas beach'.
Our role play area will be set up as a beach and ice cream stall.
In F1 we aim to go outside to do some of our learning every day, even when the weather rainy or hot.  With this in mind please make sure that your child brings a coat daily, even if the weather seems fine as it can quickly change.
Please also bring a hat on sunny days and apply suncream before the nursery session.
 A quick reminder that our class trip to Church Farm is on Thursday June 14th.  If you haven't yet returned your consent form or paid the £14, please do so the first week back.  Any questions please come and ask a member of the F1 team. 
Please remember that if you have any questions or require information then our door is always open.  If you have a query that may take longer than a couple of minutes then we would prefer it if you could see us at the end of a session when there is more time.  The morning can be very busy as all the children fly into class!  We look forward to working with you to support your child on their journey through foundation stage and will always make time to discuss any issues or questions you have.
Please make sure that all uniform, especially cardigans, jumpers and coats, are clearly labelled with your childs name.
Check regularly that ink has not faded or labels have not fallen off. 
Thank you
We would really appreciate it if you could spend time at home helping your child to learn to put on and take off their own coat and jumper/cardigan.  It helps to make them more independent and frees up more time at the end of the day when it is time to get ready for hometime........meaning more time for your child to learn through play.
In class we will ALWAYS ask your child to "have a go" first before we help.
All the children will learn through exploration, play and careful questioning and discussions with the adults.  The areas in the classroom are set up in a purposeful way so that each child can make progress through their play.
We will also work as a class or in smaller groups, listening to and talking about stories, counting, singing songs, etc.  In this way the children will learn to take turns when talking and to listen to each others ideas.
