This will be the final week for on line learning at home. We are planning for a full return to school in September in line with Government guidance. Please continue to check the school website regularly for updates and details about returning in September. Thank you for your engagement with the on line learning during these difficult months.
If you would like to see some of the adventures Waffle has been going on, please go to our 'Waffle' page on the children section of the website where you will find a special message along with some pictures!
Here is a message from our local library;
I am delighted to announce that we have just launched a new Summer Reading Challenge website especially for children in Cheshire West and Chester. It includes:
And of course there’s also the national Silly Squad website where children can join to read books and get online rewards for doing so at www.sillysquad.org.uk.
We’re still working hard to get our libraries open as soon as possible. Storyhouse is reopening this Saturday, followed by Ellesmere Port, Neston, Northwich and Winsford libraries on the 13 July with revised opening hours. A further five libraries will be reviewed two weeks later. The Summer Reading Challenge will be almost entirely online this year.

In FS1 we learn through play and love to explore our learning environment both inside and outside. We are creative and learn together with our friends in imaginative ways.
Have a look at some of the things we have been doing:
We will be looking at things in our world that go up or down! Our focus will be on animals and the ways in which they move.
The children will be exploring this big question through all areas of our curriculum. Here are some of our exciting activities:
Reading stories about plants- Which story is your favourite?
Looking at different animals and thinking about how they move- Which animals go up and which go down?
Talking about our own experiences with animals- What is your favourite animal?
In RE we will be talking about the Easter story and about how we celebrate Jesus' return. We will talk about the gifts of joy and peace that He gave us and how we can share those gifts with others. We will learn that Jesus is alive and that he is always with us, discovering ways in which we can talk to Jesus.
We love to share stories in FS1 and the children enjoy choosing their own books and spending time in our reading den. We read stories together every day as a class and the children vote for which story they would like to read each morning. The children also take home a book to share with their families. This half term our books will include:
We sing nursery rhymes every day in FS1 and the children all have their favourite rhyme! We always join in with different actions and sometimes even add in our own verses. Here are some of the rhymes we will be learning this half term:
We will be learning to count to 10 in order and begin to show the correct number on their fingers and by making marks on paper. We will also be looking for different shapes in the world around us.
