Team One

Dear parents and carers,

Welcome back! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break. We are excited to dive straight into our new topic ‘Journeys’ and are starting by going on a bear hunt- keep your eyes peeled.

This term we are going to build on all the hard work from last year and continue to develop our learning and knowledge through the seven areas of learning.

The FS2 children will continue with phase three phonics and begin to look at alternative sounds. We shall build upon our handwriting skills and continue to apply all these skills through independent writing. In maths we will be focusing on numbers 0-10 and looking at how we make numbers through number bonds. This term we are having a huge push upon reading. As a school we aim for each child to read at least four times per week at home. It really does support your child’s learning, helping them in all areas of the curriculum.

The FS1 children will continue with phase one phonics, listening to stories and rhymes and making their favourite silly soup. They will build upon their number knowledge and begin to use numbers more accurately through play.

We shall continue to share our learning through Tapestry. We love to see what the children get up to outside of school so please keep uploading images and sharing their learning at home. The downloadable app available for smartphones makes this simple. If you require any information please come and see us.  Tapestry is a tool to share and celebrate your child’s learning. If you require information or have questions please talk to staff directly.

As always we thank you for supporting your child’s learning.


The FS1 team.

Additional information which you may find useful:-


 At Sigglesthorne Church of England Primary Academy we want to celebrate all of our pupils achievements, both in and out of school. Please encourage your child to share all of their out of school achievements. This could be in the form of a swimming certificate, achievement award for any sporting or dance activity, or anything else that they have had success with outside of school. This can then be displayed on our “Amazing Me” board within the foundation area.

We hold a celebration assembly every Friday at 09:05, where children are rewarded for good work and achievement. Please come along and have a cup of tea or a coffee, chat to fellow parents and celebrate our children’s achievements.

Reading Books

Books will be changed once they have been read at home and the reading record signed however on occasion books will be sent home over more than one night. Re-reading a book has lots of benefits as we work on both fluency and comprehension to ensure the children have a whole rounded approach to reading. As a school we aim for our children to read at least four times per week.


The children will be provided with a daily snack of milk and fruit. We ask that they bring in a water bottle from home each day so that they can have a drink of water throughout the day.


Everyone has come back to school looking incredibly smart in their new uniforms.   Please can you make sure all items of clothing are named, this helps us to quickly return anything that is lost to the owner.

In foundation we love to explore our classroom and outdoor area, this means that we sometimes get a little bit messy. We have a very limited supply of spare clothes so it is very helpful for each child to have a spare set of clothes hung up on their peg.

Home Time

Please advise us if someone else is picking up your child either by phoning the office, writing a letter or telling your child’s teacher. This helps to avoid unnecessary upset at the end of the day.

Please keep an eye on our notice board for any daily information.

Breakfast Club/After School Club

The school run both a breakfast club and after school club. If you would like your child to attend either, please book them in at the office with Mrs Conlon.

Hot School Meals

When the children are in full time education (FS2) they are entitled to free school meals until the end of year 2. Please see Mrs Conlon for further information.

Thank you for your support. We believe that communication is key to your child’s success as well as a great teacher and parent/carer relationship. Please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the team.
