Hi Wren Class!
I'm sorry that our new year has been stopped before it has even started, but for our safety we are now using remote learning during this lockdown.
Work will be posted onto Google Classrooms and Purplemash and there is a guide on how to access this below in case any of you have forgotten.
There is also an EYFS email address that parents/carers can access if they have any concerns or questions over the coming weeks. This will be checked during normal school hours by either myself or Miss Shearman.
Please stay safe and keep learning!

We hope you have settled into our St Johns Family and enjoyed you first term in Wren Class and ready to begin your second term after a well earned rest.

Personal Social and Emotional Development: The colour monster- exploring our emotions and what they mean; Challenges - not giving up, remaining engaged; Similarities and differences between us and our friends.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage at St John's, we follow the Early adopter Development Matters curriculum. This focuses on 7 key areas of learning; communication and language, physical development, numeracy, literacy, personal social and emotional development, expressive arts and design and understanding the world. Much of this learning is carried out through play and exploring, alongside guided groups with adults.
We encourage the children to access the resources around the classroom and outdoor area independently, and promote the development self-care skills.
Children in Robins and Wrens have access to the outdoor area together. This gives the children the opportunity to develop friendships with children in both classes. The children will be included in planning some of the provision for the outdoor area, as well as activities planned by the adults.
Please remember to keep an eye on your child's google classroom account. We will upload work weekly for any children who would like to complete it. The partnership between parents and school is more important than ever and we hope to continue working with you all to ensure the best start in your child's education.
Our P.E day is on a Monday, however this could change without notice, therefore we ask that kit bags are brought in on a Monday morning and kept in school for the duration of the week. Your child's P.E kit needs to include shorts/jogging trousers, P.E t-shirt and plimsolls. It is important your child has the correct footwear for PE as we will go on the field when the weather is nice. Please remember to tie long hair back, and remove all jewellery, including earrings.
In addition to their P.E kit, your child will also need the following each day (Everything needs to named):
PLEASE KEEP LOGGING ONTO GOOGLE CLASSROOM AS WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE ANY WOW MOMENTS THAT YOU GET UP TO AT HOME SO WE CAN ADD IT TO YOUR LEARNING JOURNIES.
