EYFS Autumn Stay and Learn

Before half term the children in EYFS dressed up in their spooky ‘autumn’ gear and engaged in many exciting activities! Unfortunately, we were unable to invite our parents and carers this year but there was still lots of fun had! The children enjoyed icing spooky biscuits, creating autumn pictures, making a tea light holder out of clay, playing ‘what’s in the box, cooking pumpkin soup and many more! Please take a look a the photos below.


Black History Day in Jigsaw 1 and 2

This week in Jigsaw 1 and 2 we have looking a the art work of Alma Thomas. She is a famous African American artist who left teaching to pursue her dream of creating pieces of art work to inspire happiness. She uses bright, bold colours and believes that colour is life!

The children have used a range of resources to try and create art work inspired by Alma.

Jigsaw 2 Update September 2020

We have been very busy in Jigsaw 2 Nurture group so far in September. We have been exploring the outside area and getting to know each other better. We have started to develop the garden areas we have designed – these have included dinosaur, fairy and race car gardens. keep your eyes peeled to see them on your way into school. We have enjoyed circle times together sharing our ideas and practising listening to each other. We have especially enjoyed the team challenges and toasting marshmallows this week!

Welcome back!

A huge welcome back to all the children who attend Jigsaw and to those who are new starters this term. We are really lucky to have 2 Jigsaw provisions in place to support the children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 this year with cognitive development and social, emotional and behavioural needs and we have 4 enthusiastic and skilled staff ready to help your child succeed this year in school!

All the children that have been allocated a space, in either of the provisions, will have been given or sent a letter that explains the provision and requests your permission for them to attend. Please return these to school as soon as possible.

Homework is set each Friday to be returned to school for the following Thursday. We also ask that the children read at home at least 2 times a week and bring their reading books and diaries every day.

All children will participate in their own class PE lessons, this includes swimming and they will also return for any additional lessons, such as music and Golden Time.

An information page will be sent home with the children on Thursday so if you have any questions at all, then please don’t hesitate to contact us through your child’s Class Dojo page or by calling the school to chat.

We are looking forward to seeing the children and working with you this year.
