Foundation 2

Welcome to Class Africa 

 

A polite reminder...

For our Nativity your child is a sheep.

Please could you provide a pair of black trousers or leggings and a white top (school t-shirt will be fine) and we will make sheep headbands for the children to wear. Please can you send these to school by Friday 6th December in a labelled bag.

Thank you.

 

 

Stay and Play

We are also still collecting raffle prizes for our Stay and Play next Friday. If you have anything suitable please can you hand it to a member of th EYFS team by Wednesday 11th December. Thank you for the donations we have received so far. Raffle tickets will be sold at the Stay and Play session. We will also have drinks and festive treats available for a donation.

Thank you

   

Our elf was not mischievious at all last night because when we came in to school this morning he had made a train track and had an Advent train on it with some chocolate coins in the middle. We put names in the doors and we will give a chocolate coin to the children's whose names come out. 

Thank you Elf!

Today we were all very excited to see what our elf had been up to but when we got into school he was not where we left him! One of our eagle eyed children spotted him hanging on the number line and we remembered that Father Christmas had said that hide and seek was one of his favourite games.

                                   

We then realised that he had a fantastic view of the smiley side of our board and he could see all the names of the children who had made the adults happy so that he could report back to Father Christmas.

We also thought he might be wanting a number on his tummy like the Stickmen on our number line and we discussed that he would be number 21 as it is 1 more than 20 and would come next on the number line.

We wonder where he will be tomorrow!

We would like to thank all the parents and carers who have returned their questionnaires to us. If you have not yet returned it but would still like to it is not too late, you can either put it in your child's book bag or hand it to Mrs Jagger.

Thank you 

 

A Surprise Visitor

Just before lunch today Mrs Foster came round with a special parcel which had been delivered to school for Class Africa. When we opened it we were delighted to find that Father Christmas had sent us our very own class elf! There was a letter inside which told us that he can be a little mischievous so we are very excited to see what he gets up to over the next few weeks. We will keep you posted!

                                                 Decorating the Tree

Today we took our decorations into the hall to put on our Christmas tree. It was a lovely moment and once everyone in school had put their decorations on the tree looked beautiful. 

Today we started our new story 'Stickman'. We went to the Wild Area in small groups to make our own Stickmen and Stick Lady Loves. We learnt how to join sticks together using tape and pipe cleaners and then some of us acted out different parts of the story using our characters. It was such fun and the sun was shining!

We have been reading the story 'The Scarecrows' Wedding' this week and lots of our provision activities have been linked to it. Today we have decorated some biscuits to look like Betty and Harry from the story. We had such a fun afternoon but the best bit for some was definitely eating them!

Here is what we are planning on covering this half term during our whole school topic, 'How do our Actions shape our Future?'

What good fun!

We have had lots of fun using an app on the Ipad to make different nursery rhyme characters talk. We had to choose a picture then record our voices and then draw a mouth on the picture. Then the characters talked with our voices!

This week is National Nursery Rhyme week and we have had lots of provision activities linked to different Nursery rhymes. We have also done lots of singing! Can you work out which Nursery rhymes the children are representing using loose parts?

Some of the children have had great fun today completing this jigsaw and then finding the hiden rhymes. I think our favourite one was the ghost eating toast! Which rhymes can you spot?

 

 

Early Essence

Many thanks to all the parents who have uploaded videos and photographs with written commentaries of what your child is doing. As some of you are aware I was not receiving these but have now had an influx so it seems the problem has been rectified. I will be working my way through them this week so you should see them tagged in your child's learning journey very soon. Thank you for your patience.

If anyone still has not collected their password but would like it please come and see me after school any evening.

Mrs Jagger

Reading buddies

Today we have started reading buddies with Antarctica class (Year 4). We are going to be reading with them every Tuesday morning to help develop our reading skills. Today we had a getting to know you session.

Look at this fantastic shape work done by one of our superstars yesterday! She could name them and tell us about the properties as well. She even made a repeating pattern!

  

 

 

Teaser for next week

I wonder if any of you can work out the Nursery rhymes that we will be working on in Provision next week for National Nursery Rhyme week?

  

Children in Need

Well done to all of Class Africa today who wore something that made them happy. We had a real assortment of clothes from pjs to witches costumes! All money collected will be sent to the BBC Children in Need charity. We learnt about what the charity raises money for and we talked about Pudsey Bear. Here are some photos of us at work.

We have been learning about patterns and we are so proud of this little superstar and his pattern work in provision. He has independently created several complex repeating patterns using lego and has been able to tell the adults (including Mrs Tabbner and Mr Marsh) what would come next. 

     

One of the things we love is switching on an ipad and seeing the photos that the children have taken during provision. We think our undercover paparazzi have done a marvellous job today!

Just a reminder about our Phonics and Maths meeting which willl take place on Wednesday 13th November at 4pm. The meeting will take place in the classroom and should not take longer than 50 minutes.

Thank you

 

Children in Need

Children in Need day is on Friday 15th November. The children can come to school wearing something that makes them happy for example pjs, football kits, fancy dress etc. Please send a donation and we will collect it at the gate on Friday morning.

Thank you for your generosity.

We have been leanring about the festival of Divali and have been looking at some beautiful Rangoli patterns. We have linked this to our Maths work and have made some of our own patterns, including repeating patterns. We also made some Diva pots out of clay and decorated them.

We are working or way through these sounds and have just done l. Please keep practising these with your child at home and include them in VC and CVC words for the children to orally blend and segment and write in their home phonics books.

Thank you

                               Friends of Summerfields

Our school Friends group are in desperate need of some new members. If you are interested in supporting this fabulous group then please keep an eye on the newsletters or see Amanda Foster. They work very hard raising funds for school and would like as many people as possible to join them.

Thanks

 

Poppies 

Poppies will be on sale in school so if you would like your children to purchase one then please send their donation in a named envelope.

 

 

 

A huge thank you to everyone who came this afternoon to share the fabulous work we do in Class Africa. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

As Halloween is coming up this morning we carved a pumpkin and then had a story around it. It was such fun and we enjoyed thinking of good words to describe how the pumpkin felt and smelt. Evelyn said "It is squelchy!" Charlie said "It is slimy." Frankie said "It smells nice" Maximus said "It smells rotten". We also talked about the different shapes that I was cutting and how we have to be very careful when using sharp knives and ask a grown up to do it for us.

Here are some photos of us exploring the pumpkin.

Just a reminder that the photographer is in school tomorrow (Friday) to take individual photos of the children.

 

                                                     

A reminder that at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon (Friday) parents and carers are invited into class to have a look at some of the fabulous work that has taken place this half term. We will sing you some songs showing you some of the Makaton actions we have learnt, you will be able to have a look around our classroom and you will be able to have a look through your child's books. We hope you will be able to join us.

                                                      

There will not be any homework set over the half term holiday but we do ask that you continue to look at the sounds book that is in your child's book bag. Please encourage them to practise their letter formation and maybe even write some VC and CVC words in their home phonics book using the phonemes we have covered so far. We are up to 'b' and will learn 'f' when we return after the holiday. Examples of VC words are in, on, an, it, is and examples of CVC words are cat, mop, tip, bug, bad, pat.

 

 

 

 

Please can we remind you parents evening is on the 6th of November. 

We are still awaiting replies from some families to secure a time slot. 

If you require another letter please can you see Mrs Jagger before or after school. 

We really look forward to parents evening as this is a positive way of communicating with you as parents about how your child is getting on at school. 

Thank you 

 

Autumn is here 

This week we have been talking lots about the season of Autumn and the changes in the weather. We thought carefully about all the signs of Autumn outdoors, which gave us a lovely idea to design our own Autumn tree using leaves that we collected on our Autumn walk. 

Here are some of our children working together to stick leaves on the tree. 

 

 

 

Our literacy session followed on beautifully from our Autumn discussion. 

We explored the different textures of the leaves and thought of words to describe them. Some of our children said bumpy, crunchy and smooth. We thrn wrote the word on a leaf thinking carefully about the initial and end sounds we could hear.  

 

 

Marvelous Maths

Over the last two weeks we have been using number fans on the carpet to show we can recognise and show different numbers from 0-10. 

We have some super Mathmeticians in Class Africa. 

We have talked about one more than a given number and one less than a given number. 

 

This week we have been concentrating on the sounds p g o. 

Please continue to practice recognising the sound and saying the rhyme which supports the sound. 

 

This weeks Home-Learning Challenge is to play I Spy with your child. This encourages the recognition of initial sounds. Please feel free to make any comments you wish in your childs Home-Learning book and let us know how they get on. 

 

We still have some children who don't have outdoor wellingtons. 

If you wish for your child to access outdoor learning please can you provide a pair of wellingtons for your child. 

As you can appreciate the weather is starting to change and we cannot allow children on the outdoor trail area when they are not wearing the correct footwear. 

Thank you for your support.

 

This week we sent home letters to invite you to a Phonics & Maths workshop on Wednesday 13th November at 4.00pm. 

This will hopefully give you an insight as to how we teach phonics and maths in school, and give you some tips on how you can support your child at home. 

Please can we ask that you return your slip to school if you wish to attend. 

 

Your child will be bringing a letter home today regarding parents evening. This will be held on Wednesday 6th of November.

Please return your slips to school as soon as possible to reserve your required time slot.

Celebrating Home-Learning

Thank you to everyone who completed their Autumn Home-Learning.

We love how creative this piece of work is.

Amelia chose to make an Autumn canvas picture using lots of Autumn objects she found outdoors. 

Well done Amelia 

 

 

Thank you to all parents who attended the Early Essence meeting tonight after school. If you were unable to attend but would still like your password so that you can access your child's online Learning Journey then please see Mrs Jagger after the children have been let out of school tomorrow night (Wednesday). As they are passwords they can only be given to the named parent or carer. 

Thank you

In our Literacy session today we talked a lot about the senses we used on our Autumn walk yesterday and the parts of our bodies that help us to know that autumn is here. We drew around one of the children on the carpet and then we labelled parts of their body, listening very carefully to the initial sounds. Following on from the session lots of children wanted to do the same activity in Provision. 

The children asked for some paper to be stuck together and then they got busy with their own drawing and writing. It was such a lovely sight that Mrs Tabbner popped in to see the fantastic learning that was taking place. There was lots of other fantastic learning taking place with reading, writing and Maths as well and there were lots of new friendships being formed.

Well done Class Africa.

Here is what we are planning on covering during our topic, 'Who do you think you are'

You may have noticed that your child has brought a book home from our school Library. 

Library is on a Wednesday Lunchtime and children can access books that can be taken home to share with family members.

Books will be taken out of book bags on a Monday, please ensure if your child does borrow a book from our library it is returned. 

Thank you 

F2 Team 

This afternoon we have been on a lovely sensory Autumn walk around our school grounds. We thought carefully about what we could see, hear & smell, but we didn't explore our taste sense. We found some beautiful Autumn objects that we are going to use in our classroom for an Autumn display.

This week your child will be coming home with a new 'Home Sounds' book and a 'Set 1 sounds' book. This is an opportunity for your child to practice the sounds we have been learning during our Read Write Inc sessions. Please concentrate on using the correct pencil grip, and saying the correct rhyme to match the sound.

Rain, rain go away but PLEASE come back another day

This week we have made the most of the rain and explored our outdoor area. 

We independently followed Mrs Jaggers instructions and got ourselves dressed in our outdoor waterproofs and wellingtons ready to tackle the wet weather. 

Oh what fun we had. 

Can we say a huge thank you to all our supportive parents who made wonderful comments about a muddy child being a happy child. We 100% believe in this. The learning that took place was amazing and our children had such a lovely time outdoors exploring the weather. 

 

  

 

 

Can you help?

The EYFS team have been chatting about possibly doing some future fundraising to replace our current outdoor waterproof clothing.

As you can imagine it can be quiet expensive to fund 30 sets of clothing, therefore we wondered if you could help. 

Do you have any ideas of any fundraising ideas that you would be happy, along with your child to participate in? 

If you do have any weird or wonderful ideas, please could you comment in your child's planner for us to read or come and speak to a memeber of the EYFS team.

We love to get parents involved as much as possible in the learning journey of your child and would really appreciate your help. 

Thank you 

On Friday 4th October we are having our First Class photograph that will be displayed in the Barnsley Chronicle.

Watch out for this photograph in the Barnsley Chronicle very soon. 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Monday 

Welcome back to another happy Monday at Summerfields. 

We have got off to a great start this morning with our Read Write Inc work.

Fred Frog has introduced another sound to us this morning. 

Our sound today is 't' 

Last week we have been practicing the sounds m,a,s,d. 

Can you spot us in our RWI carpet learning this morning? 

         

Last week some of us practiced our letters in the glitter, to reall perfect that letter formation. 

 

 

Every day before lunch we practice our 'Singing hands' songs and rhymes.

These songs and rhymes include Makaton which we really love to promote in F2. 

Here we are in action...

 

 

Just a reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday) is our MacMillan coffee afternoon. It will be open from 2pm and parents / carers are welcome to come and enjoy a hot drink and a cake, bun or biscuit.

Children can wear something green to school and bring a donation of £1 for the charity. Green t-shirts and jumpers can be worn with regular school trousers or skirts and shoes and green bobbles and socks can be worn with full school uniform.

Thank you for your support.

 

Our very happy FRI YAY!!!! 

This morning some of our children enjoyed exploring our water collection. 

We changed into our waterproof clothing and wellies and loved exploring what the different equipment does in our water tray! We were filling and pouring and there was lots of capacity language including full and empty.

 There was some amazing team work and making relationships through working together. We even had a car wash in F2, and I must say our cars are sparkling. 

Just look at some of these smiling faces. 

 We are so proud of you 

 

 

 

HAPPY FRIDAY

We cannot quiet believe we are at the end of our second full week at big school. 

Our children are working so hard on understanding and following the routines in our classroom and school. 

 

This week in our maths learning we have been making shape houses and recognising 2D shapes. We have drawn our family members inside and even tried hard to think about the initial sounds of the names of the people we live with. 

Here are some of our shape houses on the washing line in our home corner.

 

On Tuesday we had our first PE lesson.

We were so pleased with how our children dressed and undressed as independently as they could.

We spent some time in the hall playing small circle games, and hope to build up our PE lessons over the next few weeks. 

Well done class Africa!

Super job  

 

This week we have also started to introduce maths meetings to our morning carpet session. This involves talking about the days of the week and months of the year. 

We have also done lots of practical counting forwards and backwards and even recognised numbers on a hundred square. 

 

This week we have sent lots of letters home with your children in their book bags. 

If you havent already can we ask that you fill these letters in and return to school as soon as possible. 

Thank you 

 

 

Lost jumper

Please can you check your child's jumpers as we are missing a jumper, Age either 4-5 or 5-6 from M&S. It has a name sticker in it. 

Thank you

We have had so much fun in our outdoor area. Today some of us made a assault course and we had to wait our turn We had to balance, crawl, run and jump. It was great fun!

Unnamed items of clothing

We have had several cardigans and jumpers this week which have not had names in them. Please can you ensure that you name every item of school uniform that your child has.

Thank you.

Today we had a visit from Lumi, our school's Therapy Dog. We sang a song about asking an owner before stroking their dog and we saw Lumi do some adding up!

We can't wait to get started reading to Lumi when she visits us in class.

 

  

Here are some more pictures of us using our Outdoor Area. We have been exploring some of the different collections and trying hard to remember to put things away when we have finished with them.

Today some of the children found a frog up on the grass. It was a tiny frog and it was inside  one of our tyres. The children were very careful not to be noisy or knock the tyre as they didn't want to scare it but they watched it and had some wonderful conversations. They finally decided on the name Froggy for it.

Look how much we have grown! 

Well Done Tigers you are AWESOME 

 

Wow, here we are! Our very last day in F2 together as Team Tigers! 

We have had an absolute blast, and this is all down to your children and you parents for making our year so fantastic.

Our year has been made up of lots of lovely memories including the very first day at Summerfields.  

Our children have done nothing but impress us from start to finish with their love to learn. 

It has been an absolute pleasure for both Mrs Jagger and Mrs Cuthbert to guide your children through this year and we will miss each and every one of them. 

So here is a special thanks to you guys! 

Your gifts, words and recognition will always be much appreciated.

We are overwhelmed with your generosity and kindness so thank you! 

We wish each and every one of you a wonderful summer, make lots of lovely memories together and above all stay safe!

See you all across the playground in September.

Teddy Bears' Picnic

As you know we have our Teddy Bears' picnic on Monday afternoon. We still have several reply slips which have not been returned to us. Please can you return your slip to school as soon as possible so that our kitchen staff can cater for the correct number of children.

If you are unsure as to whether you have replied or not then please ask a member of EYFS staff.

Thank you

Sports Day

On Monday we had our Sports Day and our Terrific Tigers made us so so proud. Every single one of them took part and put 100% effort into each activity. They walked around the Sports area sensibly and listened carefully to instructions. Each Tiger said they had enjoyed the afternoon and we hope you all did too.

Sports Day Fun!

We had the most amazing time at The Deep on Wednesday. Our Tigers did us proud, they were so well mannered and sensible and they listened well to instructions, stories and information.

We saw some fantastic sea life and we all enjoyed being in the glass tunnel. We saw a stingray, sharks, clown fish, turtles and so much more and then we went in a glass lift through the water, it was so exciting!

In our workshop we listened to a story about a very hungry river turtle who ended up eating some rubbish that looked like food which had been thrown into the river and it got caught on his face and his neck. Luckily a little girl (one of our Tigers) was walking past and heard his calls for help and was able to free him from the satsuma packaging net. We learnt that it is very important to throw our rubbish in a bin.

We explored the Penguin area and some of us were lucy enough to see a daddy penguin feeding his chick and we felt the ice walls (every time we walked past!). We learnt so much and it was great fun on the coach, some of us were so tired on the way back that we fell asleep! 

A great day was had by all and we have had some lovely work from it, including writing about our day and making turtles in the Creative Area.

A contribution to the trip is also required. 

 

Just to remind you that tomorrow is our Stay and Play.

HAPPY HALF TERM 

WOW we cannot quiet believe that we are at the end of another half term.

Just where has this year gone! It does not seem like two minutes since our Tigers started F2. 

Our next half term is going to be so exciting and filled with amazing interactive learning! 

 

Our topic title next half term is ' Under The Sea' one of the ideas we have is using old Cd's to create fish for our display. 

If you have any old Cd's that you no longer use we would love you to donate these to F2 for our creative area. 

We hope you have a wonderful 2 weeks half term holiday with your children.

Please continue to read little and often. There is no Home Learning task set, please make some wonderful memories with your children to share with us when they come back to school. 

 x 

Just to remind you our next Stay and Play session will be held on

Friday 14th of June from 8.40am

There will be a Father's Day theme to the Stay and Play but it is not exclusive to Fathers. 

As stated on our previous letter we did ask where possible that one adult attends, however we have looked at the numbers from the slips that have been returned and we are able to open this session up to 2 adults per child. 

As before drinks and snacks will be avaliable and a donation would go towards our classroom resources. 

We would much appreciate you returning a reply slip so we know a rough number of adults that will be attending. 

Many Thanks

Mrs Jagger & Mrs Cuthbert

If your child has come home in school socks please can you ensure they are returned to us as soon as possible.

If anyone has any spare socks / tights at home that they no longer need that we could have in school to top up our supply we would greatly appreciate it as our supply has completely run out.

Thanks

Who says rain has to stop play?

This week has been one of the wettest ones yet but the Terrific Tigers did not let this stop them getting outside!

We talked about how the water would always find the quickest path down the soil and how the more water there was the stickier the mud became. We added water from the water area and talked about capacity and weight and we had so much fun! We had to get fully togged up in all our waterproofs and wellies and try to get them off without getting our feet dirty.

Here are some photos of us enjoying our Outdoor area.

The Tour de Yorkshire comes to Summerfields!

Today the Tour de Yorkshire Ladies' race passed our school so we were out in force cheering and clapping them on.

To celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire on Friday school dinner will be having a Yorkshire theme. Rather than the usual Fish and Chips it will be Sausage, Mash and Yorkshire pudding!

Before the Easter holidays we were all given a triangle of fabric that we had to draw pictures and patterns all over. Mrs Bates, our EYFS governor then took these triangles home and sewed them together to create some fabulous Tour de Yorkshire bunting. She hasn't just done it for FS2 she has done it for the whole school so that we can trim up the road as the cyclists go past. 

This afternoon we went outside to hang up our bunting and we have to say that it looks amazing! See if you can spot your flag!

School will then finish at 1:15pm due to the afternoon road closures, and give time for you to enjoy the celebrations with your children.
