Early Years Foundation Stage

WELCOME TO OUR YEAR GROUP'S VIRTUAL PAGE.

Hello Early Years! ­­­­

 

This week is book week and we will focus on promoting a love of reading and thinking about illustrations when reading. Each day a teacher from Year 5 will be posting a story for your children to listen to and have lots of fun activities throughout the week for you to enjoy. Remember on Thursday you can dress up as a book character for your live lesson – we can’t wait to see who you come as!

 

Below is a timetable for the live lessons this week. You have been wonderful this week and we have really enjoyed all the lessons. The link will go live on Google Classroom at the time of your lesson, so don’t worry if you can’t see it beforehand. Here are the times and details of the lessons.
