Fox Class - EYFS

Welcome back!

What a busy week in Class! We had a phone call from Gran. She was very worried as a dolphin has been stranded on the beach. She has asked for our expert help to rescue it. We contacted the fire brigade to ask if we can use their hoses to keep the dolphin wet. We also asked the local hospital for a bed with wheels, so that we can transport it to the sea. We need to wear gloves to protect us from germs and we need to be careful of the fins. Next week we will hopefully get the dolphin back into the sea safely, now that we have a plan of action!

Maths News

In Maths this week, we have been learning to use a number line to help us add. Next week we will continue exploring this further, and also subtract.

Literacy News

This week we have had a reading focus. We have been thinking about ‘how’ questions. We will continue this next week.

Our phonic sounds this week were: air, ure and ear.  Next week we will continue this. Every Monday morning is now handwriting in class. We will be writing the words that we have set for homework and practising the letter formation together. Every Friday morning is now a Big Writing session. We will be choosing a part of our topic that we have been exploring and writing a sentence together.


This week the children will be practising writing the sentence; I go to the shop.

The writing format has changed to be in line with the presentation in books in school. Please do not let your child form a letter incorrectly. Do ask them to rewrite a letter for more practise as this will ensure that mistakes are addressed quickly.

Also you can support by reading their books every night and practising their maths challenges. Please make sure that your children bring their challenge cards to school.
