The Cutnall Green Early Years Environment: We believe in providing a happy, caring, inclusive teaching and learning environment where our children can begin to grow up to be competent, confident learners and communicators.

It is very important to us that our Pre-school and Reception environment is warm, welcoming and secure where our children can build the trust and confidence necessary to:

Enjoy positive interactions and relationships with the teachers and other children; Explore more structured learning including Literacy and Numeracy; Become actively involved in investigative learning, focused on finding answers to questions they themselves have posed; Begin to experience research and independence in learning; and to Begin to acquire the skills in critical thinking, creativity and working with others.

Transition to Reception: Our child-centred approach experienced continues seamlessly into Reception.
At this stage, whilst more formal teacher-led activities are introduced, child-led initiatives build on pre-existing interests and inspiring enthusiasm and engagement in learning. Children's abilities vary widely at this stage so lessons are differentiated to ensure that all pupils are being appropriately challenged across the curriculum.

We all enjoy taking a library book home to read every night in our special 'Cutnall Green' Book bags. If we read every night we get to celebrate with Mrs Brunt in our Friday 'Celebration Assembly!'

We also have a name card to write our name. We love to write!

Learning our letter sounds and names is also an important part of our day; we love to sing the songs and show off our actions!

Interactive Learning Diary is how our teachers record our learning; you can add information from home too.

Learning At Home...


Please ensure that you read with your child for at least 10 mins every day. It really does make a difference to progress.
Remember reading at home does not need to be confined to school books, it is good for children to have experience of reading various types of text, fiction, non-fiction, magazines, comics - (do they still make them?), sport reports etc.

Please contact Mrs Rowley if you have any questions We are looking forward to our final half term of great progress and exciting learning opportunities!

A few reminders:

PE: Please ensure PE kits are in school at all times Forest Fun: We will be doing forest fun EVERY Wednesday morning. Please make sure your child has appropriate clothes and footwear for the weather. They will always need long trousers and long sleeved tops. There are plenty of stinging nettles about! They can change into these prior to the session if necessary.

Reading: Please hear your child read or read to them every day, it really does make a BIG difference to their progress. Whether you read or they read please note it in their reading diary so we can track and record their reading. 5 reads for 5 weeks equals a new book!

Weather: please make sure your child has a WATER bottle available at all times. Keep juice for break and lunch times. Drinking juice and squash all day means a greater chance of tooth decay as they contain sugar. A hat and sun protection is also important.

The topic for this half term is 'Authors; Julia Donaldson'

There are a number of events happening this half term so please check your child's book bag regularly for any letters which may have updates on.

Thank you for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to come and see me if you have any questions.
