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.

The children have settled so well into class - making new friendships and learning to be independent hanging their coat up and putting their book bag in their drawer.

In the Me and My Community project, your child will learn about the school community and building friendships. They will explore the school grounds and find out about all the people in school who are there to help them. They will explore how they are special and unique and how everyone’s family is different. They will take part in practical activities to support them to build new friendships and explore what makes a good friend. They will also find out about people in the community who help us, including doctors, nurses, and the emergency services.

Supporting your child at home

  • Look at family photographs together and discuss who is part of your family and extended family.
  • Look at baby photographs and talk about how they have grown.
  • Look at any childhood photographs of parents and grandparents.
  • Talk about the things you like to do together and places you like to go.
  • Share and discuss the Did you know? resource

 

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, Miss Goodgame or Mrs Olive.
