Autumn Term 1

We are extremely excited to meet all our new starters at East Bierley Primary School. We hope you are too. In our class there is Mrs Clark, Mrs Collins and Miss Senior.

Ms Bray and Miss Dransfield like playing in our class too.

This term we will be focusing on getting children settled into school, making new friends and learning new routines. When children are settled we will begin learning phonics, which is the basis to early reading and writing skills. Children will learn new sounds each week through songs and activities and will begin to write using our pre cursive font.

You can find the songs on YouTube on the link below:

We will begin to investigate numbers, looking at a different number each week using Numberblocks and children will be given many opportunities to explore these numbers inside and out.

Our topic this term will be All About Me, which celebrates the child as the individual that they are, learning about themselves, their families and the communities they live in.

PE is on a Tuesday and we ask that long hair is tied back and earrings are removed where possible. PE kit can be left at school all term and we will send it home for the holidays.

We do have a free flow environment so children must bring a suitable coat to school every day. We will be using the mud kitchen and water outside so wellies and waterproof coats are required.

Our doors open at 8:40 and you are welcome to come in and join us until 9am.

Parents evenings will be held in October before half term.



Please ensure that long hair is tied up and earrings are removed. It would also be a big help if no tights are worn on PE days as this speeds up getting changed.

No PE kit is required for this term as we will just remove socks and shoes. A letter will be sent out with plenty of notice when a PE kit is needed.
