Early Years: Olympus

Welcome to Olympus

We have PE on Monday and Forest School on Fridays. 

Please wear warm comfortable clothes for Forest School as it can be cold and muddy in the woodland area. If you have a pair of boots please bring them in and name them.

Big wide world

Our project for the last half term is Big Wide World. This project teaches children about the global community to which they belong and explores how living things, communities and climates differ around the world. 

We continue to use The Write Stuff approach in literacy and will be sharing The Rainbow Fish and learning to write labels and captions.

In maths we will be focusing on number and subtraction. You may wish to share this episode of Numberblocks and talk about what happens with your child:

Pre-Teach

If your child has been invited to pre-teach, please drop them off at 8.20am (or we can collect from breakfast club if they attend). 

Tapestry: Please check in regularly to access observations made in class and to see activities to support your child at home. For example, we regularly post activities to support children's mathmatical understanding and also share Ruth Miskin videos linked to individual Read Write Inc. groups. If you have any questions, please speak to Mrs Wavish or Mrs Olive.
