Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage at Glazebury!
We would like to welcome you to your child's EYFS and provide you with lots of information to support you and your child on your new journey at Glazebury.
Our promise to all the children in our school:
H-Helping children to prepare for life, growing with God
E-Embracing Christian Values
A-Achievement for all
R-Reading at the heart of our school
T-Teaching a knowledge rich curriculum
"Love never fails" 1 Corinthians 13:8
"For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding" Proverbs 2:6
For Reception children homework is given out on Monday and should be returned on Friday. We use a system that focuses on stimulating conversation, asking questions and using our creativity. We aim to ensure homework reflects learning within the classroom.
As part of our pledge to support your child, we endeavor to read with your child at least three times a week in school. We expect the children to be read to at home three times a week, from Monday to Friday. Please record your home reading in your child's reading diary. These diaries are monitored daily and must come to school each day. Please feel free to send a class Dojo to either Miss Smith or Miss Bimson if you need any support with reading at home, we are always happy to help.
Your child's bookbag must come to school every day and must contain both reading books and their reading record.
PE: Reception have PE on a Tuesday afternoons.
Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school with all items clearly labelled with your child’s name. Please ensure pumps are checked each half term, as you know, our youngest children grow at a rapid rate.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s learning, or any of the information given please do contact school via the office or directly through class Dojo and we will be happy to support.
