Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's school

Oak Class

What was the Preschool is now Oak Class - catering for children from 2 until 5 we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and incorporate Nursery and Reception in a new class with free flow access to the outside. Planning is done in the moment, meaning that the children's next steps are catered for instantly which helps to cement understanding. It is teacher led throughout the week by Mrs Bond with two part time teaching assistants.

Oak class runs for the whole school day offering flexible sessions between 0900 and 1530, contact the school to find out more and arrange a visit today.

 

We are making a push towards seed to plate culture in our class, this is the first of our many (hopefully) hauls from our garden that we are developing.

Class 1 Newsletter: Summer Term

 

Welcome back to the final half term of this academic year, what a busy one it has been. We have had chocolate pizza making, visits to Pets at Home (with the prize of 6 fish who are still going strong), helping to wash the dogs at Shampooch and lots more. This term will be no different!

On Friday 16th Oak Class will be taking part in Den Day again so will be spending the day outside, if you could send your child in clothes you don’t mind getting a little muddy it would be appreciated! We have visited the library in Snainton and hope to continue to do so, we feel it is important to support the local community. If there are any other events locally that you think we will like then please let me know. Whole school Sports Day is the 12th July at 1.30pm, I will pass on more information when I have it.

We appreciate your support filling in the focus children sheets and emailing pictures in, we do love to see what everyone gets up to at home and it is a brilliant talking point in class. If you have any questions regarding your child, or you think we may be able to help in any way please do come and have a chat with me.

PE has been a great success this term (getting ourselves Sports Day ready!) but like school uniform can you please make sure clothing is clearly labelled. 

Finally, due to the amount of toys that come in to school to be shown and then get lost or broken please can your child only bring something in when they are a focus child.

Class 1 Newsletter: Autumn term

A warm welcome to the Early Years department of Snainton School, we hope that you enjoyed the summer and are ready for the year ahead. There have been many changes over the course of the summer holidays in order to make the best provision possible for you. Nursery and Reception will share an extended space and this is being developed to include a free flow access to outside within the first weeks of term. We have taken over the previous class 1’s classroom and have rearranged it to offer an exciting and challenging environment. I look forward to sharing it with you over the coming weeks.

As we move to offer full time sessions we welcome a new member of staff to the Early Years team, Mrs White will be joining us on three afternoons a week. Mrs Clark will continue to work all day Monday, Tuesday and the mornings of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I will oversee the class throughout the week.

The Early Years will be based around child interests, the staff will step in to support and extend learning. We believe that play is vital in promoting learning and development and the staff gain a sound knowledge of every child so learning can be promoted through high quality interactions. Any questions about the way it works, how your child is doing, anything no matter how small – our door is always open. We are switching to an online learning journal via Tapestry, this will allow you to view, comment and add observations to build your child’s profile. Should you wish to be a part of this then all we need is an email address and I will do the rest.

Finally, please make sure that your child’s clothing is clearly labelled its tricky keeping tabs on them otherwise.

 

Mrs Bond and the Early Years team.
