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.

Our project this half term is 'Sunshine and Sunflowers' and provides opportunities for outdoor learning. It also teaches children how to care for the plants and animals in their local environment and we will learn about seasons. To enrich learning, we will be visiting Cogges Manor Farm and will take part in a Jack and the Beanstalk experience session. We are also excited for our caterpillars to arrive in class.

 

Pre-Teach: focus Read Write Inc. phonics this half term

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). We will be focusing on set 1 sounds and will be pre-teaching skills for ditty group. 

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.
