Welcome to 2 Year Provision
We hope you have had a lovely Summer Holidays and had lots of fun! We are all so excited to come back and we are raring to enter the first term of the year with gusto!
Our topic for Autumn Term 1 is called 'Magical Me!' We will be getting to know ourselves, each other and our families and interests and also exploring the similarities and differences between each other! We cant wait to get started on lots of activities based around this, such as making a family tree and painting self portraits!
The Room Lead in 2 Year Provision is Shelley Nicholson and the Early Years Practitioners are Kirsty Rodham and Danielle Hocking. We are very excited to see everyone again and get to know our new families joining us this year!
If you have any queries or questions please don't hesitate to speak to one of us or drop Shelley an email at the address below!
Reading with Adults week
A massive thank you to all the adults, parents and carers who came into the setting to read to and with us! We all really enjoyed it and it was lovely to see many attend! Take a look at some of the photos we took across the week!
Exploring our Great Outdoors!
We love being outside in all weathers and have been enjoying exploring the environment around us from walks in the school grounds to taking part in activities in our very own garden! Here are some pictures of our recent adventures..
How you can help at home
There are lots of things that you can do at home to support your child at home.
Singing is such an important part of Early Years education, it supports speech, language, mathematical awareness and early reading.
We do encourage all children to use words instead of actions to make their wants and needs known. It is helpful if you continue this at home by encouraging talk and extending vocabulary for example if your child says "car" you could extend this by saying "yes, it's a big, red car".
When out shopping you could encourage your child to create their own shopping list. This list might be a lot of marks on paper but to your child it will be exactly what they say it is. Encourage your child to remember what they wanted to put on there " have we got everything on your list?"
If you would like to find out more about how you can help at home please speak to your child's key person.
We take part in weekly Forest School sessions and have been really enjoying exploring the school grounds. We have been learning about boundaries outdoors and have been taking part in different activities to encourage independence and exploration.

Session times are 8.45-11.45 and 12.15-3.15.
If someone different is collecting your child please inform school as soon as possible and make sure the person collecting brings their I.D and knows the correct password please!
We send weekly diaries home on Friday. These tell you what your child has been up to and what they have been learning. Please return these by Wednesday.
Notes from home are sent home regularly and are available anytime from staff.
You will have the opportunity to look at and contribute to your child's Learning Journey throughout the year and can ask to see this at anytime.
Each day your child will need to bring a named coat, bag and spare clothes. As the weather is becoming very changeable, we would really appreciate it if you could bring suitable clothes ready for any changes!
We go outside whatever the weather so children need to be changed frequently. Please ensure you send a named bag with plenty of spare clothes in, especially if your child is potty training.
If your child wears nappies or pull ups please send these AND wipes in a named bag each day.
Thank you for your support
