Welcome to EYFS
We would like to say a big 'hello' and welcome to the Academy of Cuxton Schools. We are, Mr Worsfold, Miss Robinson, Mrs Hollington, Mrs Mussellwhite and Mrs Chapman . If you wish to ask us anything or pass on any information at all, please feel free to approach any member of the EYFS Team
Apologies, we have noticed that the timings for PE will need changing again as both Ash and Oak class will have PE every Thursday afternoon. We wanted to give you as much notice as possible so we have put the changes below. A letter will follow as soon as school reopens next week.
Thursday 10th June only
Both Ash and Oak class will have Woodland explorers on Thursday morning and PE in the afternoon. Please could your child come to school in their Forest school clothes and bring a PE kit in a bag. Your child will come home in their PE kit to limit the number of times they are changing.
Thursday 17th June onwards
PE will be every Thursday afternoon for both Ash and Oak class. Please could your child come to school in their school uniform and bring their PE kit in a bag. Your child will come home in their PE kit to limit the amount of times they are changing. This will remain the same for the rest of the term.
Friday 18th June onwards
Both Ash and Oak class will have woodland explorer sessions on Friday mornings. Please could your child come to school in their forest school clothes and bring their school uniform in a bag to change into.
We have been amazed at the variety and quality of learning that the children have produced for their home learning projects. The children could talk with such enthusiasm and knowledge! They have been a real success. Please find Term 6 project ideas for you to try. If you want to do something else related to animals that isn't on the home learning project ideas sheet, that is absolutely fine we love to celebrate any of the children's interests.
Support for parents!
You will find a number of resources available for you to download, or a link to follow, for ideas to support your children at home.
Reading incentive scheme
Following on from our successful introduction of the reading books and the online rising stars book scheme in Term 1, we wanted to thank you for your enthusiasm and engagement. It really will make a huge difference to their reading ability as they get older. We wanted to remind you of the things you can do to help and to tell you about our reading incentive scheme that the whole school follow.
You may have noticed numbers at the side of your home reading journal tallying up the amount of times your child has read at home or at school. Every read counts so please make sure you remember to write in the journal when your child uses rising stars too. When your child reaches a certain amount of reads (see below), they will receive a sticker and a shout out by Mrs Aldham-Breary in our virtual celebration assembly every Monday.
Bronze sticker: 25 reads
Silver sticker: 50 reads
Gold sticker: 100 reads
Ways you can help your child to read
Please continue to learn the sound cards that are sent home every Friday. Please practice these every day (about 2 minutes).
Your child should read at least 3 times per week with the levelled reading book and/or rising stars online reading scheme.
Try to read a book more than once to help children develop confidence, a deeper understanding of stories and fluency.
Read bedtime stories every night for enjoyment as this builds children’s language, understanding, speaking and reasoning skills
If you have any questions, please talk to your class teacher who will be happy to help.
