Early Years Newsletter

 This week's news from Kindergarten and Reception

Dear Parents,


Here is an outline of our learning this week:

  • Most of our work this week has been centred around our exhibition which finally opened! We kicked things off by presenting a short assembly to the rest of the school to invite them to see our learning during this current Unit of Inquiry.
  • All of the classes and teachers came to visit and the EYFS children gave guided tours that showed how knowledgeable they are.
  • The children continue to add things to our exhibition such as drawings of whales, posters about plastic and plastic sea creatures.
  • We read The Snail and the Whale and made a moving picture of a whale.
  • The children built Duplo models and then wrote a description of what they had made.
  • We had a focus on more and less, addition and subtraction.
  • It was great to meet with you all during our 3-way conferences and the children were able to talk through their portfolios confidently.
  • We talked about using paper carefully and not using brand new papers to build aeroplanes but recycling a piece of used paper.


  • We will not send home any more books. Please check at home and return all the school books that you may have.
  • Our Greenpeace Cake Sale is on Wednesday, 27th June at 3.30pm. We are looking forward to seeing your creations.
  • We will go on a trip to Golders Hill Park on Friday and complete a workshop called The Secret Life of Butterflies.
  • We will have a class party during the last week. We just need to confirm a suitable time as things are getting busy with the end of term approaching.
  • Holiday Club deadline is next Friday, 29th at 4.00pm. Due to maintenance work, the dates on offer are from 30th July - 17th August.
