Parental Engagement

Working in partnership with parents is central to the Early Years Foundation Stage.  Regularly discussing your child’s learning and achievements from in and out of school will enable us to have a much broader picture of your child’s development.

There are many ways in which we can share information...

  • you can speak with your child's Key Person or the class teacher
  • you can share observations on 2Simple by emailing 
  • you can complete a 'Proud Moment' slip
  • we will regularly share with you your child's learning journey and share with you their next steps in learning and development


Read With Me

We would like to invite parents/carers into class to read with their child each Friday morning until 8.40am.  It would be lovely if you’re able to join us. 



Reception have P.E. each Monday afternoon and will need full P.E. kit (black shorts, white t-shirt and pumps/trainers). Please remember to label all items of clothing. 


Home Learning

Children will be given two reading books to read at home each week.  In Foundation Stage, we encourage parents/carers to read with their child every day, even just for 5-10 minutes. 

Children will also be given a key ring with the sounds they have been learning in phonics and some words to practise too.  (See rhymes below.) Please make sure that key rings are brought to school every day. 

Children will also be given optional topic challenges to complete with you at home each half term. 

Phonics Learning - Here are the sounds we are currently learning.
