Foundation Phase: Fine Motor Skills

Please find some information about fine motor skills and how to develop your child’s fine motor skills. Fine motor skills are necessary for performing everyday academic, play, and self-care skills.
Within the classroom, we have fine motor ‘Funky Finger’ activities and we take part in ‘Disco Dough’. Please see attached ‘What is Disco Dough? for more information on this.
We would like to encourage ‘Funky Finger’ activities to take place at home. We have found daily short burst ‘Funky Finger’ time has a positive impact on children’s fine motor skills. 
At home, we would like you to pick a different activity a day to complete for 5 minutes, where possible. These activities do not need to include lots of preparation and some activities you can incorporate into your normal daily activities. There are lots more on the internet if you wish to look for more. 
Happy Finger Moving!
Many Thanks,
Miss Davies, Mrs Harris and Mrs Williams.

Foundation Phase: Celebrating Harvest Time

This afternoon Class 1 and Nursery/Reception came together in the hall to share songs to celebrate harvest.
We watched each other perform. Nursery and Reception sang ‘Farmer Ben’ and ‘Afal, Oren, Banana’. Reception then performed a song called ‘Autumn Leaves’.  We really enjoyed watching Class 1’s performance, it was lovely to be together again.
The videos of Nursery and Reception’s songs will be put on their Seesaw Journal. If you need a new Seesaw code, please email the school [email protected].
Thank you 🙂

Foundation Phase: Resources

Hello!
If you have any clear water/squash/pop bottles and kitchen roll tubes at home could you please bring them in by Thursday?
Also, if you have any spare plastic containers with lids e.g butter/margarine/takeaway containers we would also be thankful for them. 
Please can I ask that any bottles or containers are washed before they come into school?
These are to use to make some sea instruments.
Thank you very much  🙂
