Stay & Play Teddy Bears' Picnic (11.02.20)
Thank you so much to all the parents and family members that made it to Stay & Play this morning. It is always a pleasure and the children love sharing their learning with you in school. We look forward to seeing you again for World Book Day (Thursday 5th March).
Stay & Play (25.10.19)
Wow! What a fantastic turn out for our first Stay & Play of the year. We really enjoyed exploring all the areas of provision with our families, showing off our learning so far. Thank you to all who came. See you again soon!
Thank you to those of you who have already returned your reply slips for 'Parent Share'. Please look out for the invitation email to confirm your participation. We are very excited to share your child's online learning journey with you - children have already been asking "Can you take a photo of me and send it to my mummy?"
Here are some documents that you may find useful as your child begins their learning journey at Ireland Wood. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact a member of the Reception team.
Maths in Early Years
We use White Rose Maths to inform our planning in Reception.
There are 5 counting principles:
1. The one-one principle
2. The stable order principle
3. The cardinal principle
4. The abstraction principle
5. The order-irrelevance principle
If you would like to know more about these key counting principles, please see the attached document or feel free to ask your child's class teacher.
Thank you for those of you who have returned your child's dinner menu choices for this term. If the office have not yet received your child's dinner menu, they will be given the green (vegetarian) option every day.
Packed lunches - if your child chooses to have a packed lunch, please could you ensure that they are provided with healthy and nutritious options. A copy of our school policies can be found below.
At Ireland Wood, we aim to provide all children with access to the outdoor provision whatever the weather. Please ensure that you send your child with a waterproof coat and wellies during wet weather. We do have additional waterproof trousers and a selection of wellies in school. Some children still manage to get wet so if you would like to provide your child with spare uniform this would be extremely helpful as we have a limited supply of spare clothes. If your child does come home in spare uniform belonging to school, we would be most grateful if this can be returned as soon as possible. Thank you for your support.
