A Fantastic Start To The New School Year!
At the end of the children's first week in Foundation stage, I wanted to say how proud I am of the children and how well they have all done in settling into school life.
We have already learnt lots of new things and the children have all made new friends.
It continues to be a lot of fun getting to know all our new children, making new relationships and making existing relationships stronger.
Thank you for your support as the children start this new chapter in their young educational life.
I look forward to watching them grow and develop over the coming year.
Welcome to the Marton family!
A Remider From Mrs Cooper
Dear Parents and carers,
Just a reminder about children's snacks. All children need to bring in a water bottle and a snack from home or snack money. They can have school fruit for one of their playtimes.
Through out the year we welcome new children who may have allergies to certain foods . With this in mind we teach the children not to share food and would appreciate your support in conveying this at home as well.
Thank you for your continued support.
All adults working in our Foundation Stage Team are committed to providing the best care, attention and teaching and learning to every child passing through, based upon the EYFS Principles and Commitments.
We nurture the Unique Child in their individual development, keeping all children safe, ensuring that their health and well-being is protected in a safe and inclusive environment, and where diversity of individuals and communities is valued and respected. Each child has a unique profile of their abilities and achievements to ensure this.
The Foundation Stage that we provide is a place of Positive Relationships, where warm trusting relationships with knowledgeable adults support children’s learning more effectively than any amount of resources; where children learn to be independent and form a base of and for appropriate loving and caring relationships, respecting each other and the people they meet. Similarly, practitioners display respectful acknowledgement of the feelings of children and their families, as well as working in partnership with parents thus having a positive impact on children’s development and learning.
Our Reception classroom consists of Enabling Environments both indoors and outdoors which play a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning! The rich and varied learning environment supports every child’s learning and development through planned experiences and activities that are enjoyable, engaging, challenging but achievable.
As the Learning and Development of each child is individual we promote active learning, play and exploration and creativity and critical thinking within the 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas of learning and development:
Personal, Social and Emotional
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
These areas of learning are underpinned by the principles of the EYFS and supports children’s progress towards the 5 outcomes of the Every Child Matters agenda.
