Class 1

Our topic in Foundation Stage for this half term is 'Who is Julia Donaldson?' We have been busy looking at the Gruffalo story first and reading lots of super Julia Donaldson books at story time.

Outdoors we have been making Gruffalo crumble and owl ice-creams.

If you have any Julia Donaldson stories at home, enjoy reading them together and talking about the author and illustrator of the stories.

P.E. in class 1 is on a Monday and Friday - you can bring your trainers to change into.


We work and play in our outdoor area no matter what the weather so please make sure your child has appropriate clothing to be outside - it is quite breezy on the playground and our area is in the shade until the afternoon.


Please make sure your child brings their book bag to school each day. We will change reading books and listen to children read the books they bring home once a week. Please write in your child's reading record each time you listen to them read - even if it just the date and your initials we will see that they have been practising.


Homework will be sent each week on Seesaw. This will be on a Friday and reflect what we have been doing in class that week. Please let me know if you have any questions at all about homework or reading books we send home.


Keep an eye on Facebook as we will continue to put photographs on there of what we are doing in class.  


If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me on seesaw or p.hayhurst@upperwoodacademy.com
