"Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfill their potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, ." 
Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, Department for Children, Schools and Families, 2012. 
 
 
The Early Years in school are known to be particularly influential in developing the skills and attitudes necessary for children to ‘learn how to learn’. 
 
Learning through Play. Children develop emotionally, intellectually, morally, physically, spiritually and socially and at different rates. All these aspects are of equal importance in the early years and are interwoven. Young children need opportunities to experiment, explore, investigate, observe and plan, implement, be imaginative and creative, and reflect upon their work and experiences. Play is an excellent learning medium and structured play activities are an integral part of the planned curriculum. Play is an important vehicle for learning and appropriate resources are provided both within and outside the classroom. 
Writing
In addition to the following as a Catholic school we follow the ‘God Matters’ RE strategy. 
 
The Early Years Foundation Stage gives equal importance to the 7 areas of learning: 
3 Prime Areas :- 
- Personal, social and emotional development 
- Communication and language 
- Physical development 
4 specific areas :- 
 
- Understanding of the world 
- Literacy 
- Expressive arts and design 
- Mathematics 
 
 
Assessment 
 
 
This week we are playing with words through alliteration and rhyme. 
 
On Tuesday we will be sharing a story called 
'The Bumblebear' 
and making honey sandwiches. 
Each child has a free copy of this book to take home and keep, from the book trust. 
Enjoy a quiet story time with your child. 
Can they tell you about the story, what is their favourite part of the story, their favourite character ? 
Can you draw a picture from the story ? 
Can you use the computer to research bee facts ? 
 
Let us know how you share the book. 
 
 
 
 
 
Please remember to bring in wellies and a waterproof coat on Wednesday this week.  
Thank you.
