EYFS

Week Beginning 4th March 2024.

We have had a fantastic week in EYFS! This week, the children have been learning the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. We have made story maps about the story and practised our storytelling with actions. The children enjoyed our seasonal walk on Wednesday and enjoyed talking about seasonal changes. 

  

Worship theme of the week:

New Life

Happiness – International Day of Happiness  

Sunday 19th March - Start of Spring  

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” 

John 10:10  “I have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly.”

Homework:

Reading:

We would love to see the children in EYFS using their extra time at home to read some brilliant books. If children read three times at home, they get a raffle ticket. Please, therefore, keep a quick record in reading logs – your children can write the title in to help! We would also like to encourage children to bring their reading records into school every day.

Coming up:

  • Our Library and PE day is on a Wednesday. 
  • World book day- Thursday 7th March. 

Many thanks for all of your support,

Miss Daw & Miss Wingate
