PE

 

Our PE day is Monday.

Your child will need a t-shirt and pair of shorts in a named bag.

Once their PE kit is in school, we leave it here until half term.

Please remember to label all clothes (even shoes) to avoid any mix ups!

 

Early Bird Reading

Every Wednesday Morning you are invited into school from 8.30-8.45 to read with your child.

This is also an opportunity to talk to Miss Law if you have any questions or need any support to help with your child's reading. 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

Tapestry and Marvellous Me

 

In Foundation Stage we use an online program called 'Tapestry' to share your child's learning journey with you.

Tapestry allows you to log in and see what your child has been learning in school and gives you the opportunity to share experiences at home with us.

This is a secure sight which allows only you to view your child's learning journey and gives you an insight to the learning opportunities they access whilst with us in Foundation.

 

Across school we also use positive communication tool called 'Marvellous Me'.

This tool will be used in Foundation to share news, messages and significant positive achievements with you. 

Parents and carers can get an app on their phone to access it. If you haven't signed up, please do so ASAP so that you don't miss out.

Reading

At Church Vale we value children's love of reading and want to begin their reading journey as soon as they start their time in Foundation Stage with us. 

 

We share books daily and recognise how important it is for children to listen to stories. Each week your child will bring home a 'sharing book' this is a book for you to read to them. Please take time in your busy days to share a story and have quiet, quality time with your child. 

 

Your child will also bring home a 'reading book' which is matched to their reading ability. This is for your child to read to you and practice the skills they have learnt in school. 

 

We expect our children to read at home at least 3 times a week. Additional to their reading and sharing book, encourage your child to reads books at home, magazines, signs and leaflets! 

We count how many reads your child has done each week and they awarded with a certificate and prize when they reach

25, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 reads.

 

Please see below the 'Fast words' we have learnt in Foundation so far this year.

Please encourage your child to read these words from sight. This will help their fluency of reading.
