Welcome to Year R

At Worlebury we strongly believe that Early Years education is the foundation upon which young children build the rest of their schooling. It is a holistic education that encompasses all learning and development. This is the purpose, nature and management of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Worlebury Primary School. EYFS is available to children who enter school from September of the academic year in which they will turn five years old. These children are in the final year of the EYFS. In the National Curriculum this is referred to as the Reception Year, or YR. To read the full policy please look at Policies under Key Information
The Reception children at Worlebury have a fenced off area from the main playground which forms part of their 'outdoor learning environment'. They have access to this area throughout the day. For more information on the Reception Curriculum, please visit our Curriculum page under Key Information.
Please share reading books 5 times a week and record your progress in your child's reading log. We audit all reading logs weekly to support you and your child's development.
Start of the day: 8.50am
End of the day: 3.00pm
We have been busy with our projects for the 'Three Little Pigs'. We have used junk modelling to create homes out of different materials and used a story map on our carpet to help guide us through the story using pictures. Have a look on our Class DoJo page where you can see a video of us retelling the story!!
Today was our first full day of school and all of our children managed the day beautifully! We have been having great fun exploring our 'Three Little Pigs' story. We have used junk modelling and we even acted out the fairy tale on our outside stage area! We are becoming great storytellers and are using amazing vocabulary in our speech!! We even used phrases from the story that we have learned by heart. You can view these on our class DoJo page.
A huge and warm welcome to all of our new reception children and families!
We are looking forward to getting to know you and welcoming you into our Worlebury School family.
Over the next few weeks, we will learning about school life - where our personal belongings go, personal care, how we work and play together, developing friendships, learning school routines and how to look after our classroom. We are going to have great fun sharing stories, discussing our hobbies and interests and exploring our class and school environment.
Please feel free to catch me in the playground (usually after school is a quieter time!) to speak with me about your child. I love to hear what they have been doing at home and what they learn with you!
You can share examples of their learning at home on Tapestry and I will comment on their diary entry which you can show to your child. You are also welcome to message me if there is something you need to contact me with or bring to my attention through Class DoJo. Class DoJo will be an active app that we will share pictures, videos and class stories with you throughout the year.
Rock on Term 1!
Mr Gill. :)
