'Opportunity For All To Succeed'

 

Welcome to Penguins! 

We are so looking forward to working, playing and learning with you all this year! 

There will be lots of activities to get involved in across a wide range of topics which we really hope you will enjoy!

We love to hear about what you have been doing outside school. Please let us know what interesting things you have been up to using our class email penguinsandparrots@gmail.com 

Our 'virtual' new parents meeting information!

Have a (virtual) look around our school!

This is is the overview of our learning for the year

 

For your information here is the 'Development Matters' document to show the statutory requirements for the Early Years Foundation stage.

Some reminders...

Please remember to keep PE kits in school every day. The children will take them home at half term. PLEASE NAME EVERY ITEM OF YOUR CHILD'S CLOTHING!

Please take time to read with your child EVERY DAY - little and often is best!

Please also sign the children's diary so that they can receive stickers which lead to prizes!

Some useful links for New School Starters!

Please also help us to help the children by reinforcing the sounds being taught at school. Phonics is the method by which we teach reading and writing. Here are some videos which demonstrate the correct pronunciations.
