Welcome to Dover Park
Early Years Foundation Stage
Our Teacher is Mrs Cooper and our Support Staff are Mrs Skipper, Mrs Ashworth and Mrs Afonso.
There are 30 children in our class and we work hard as part of a team! We love learning and are very independent in all that we do!
Here are some of photos of the events and activities that we have taken part in during the Autumn Term.
As part of our work on harvest we read the story of the little red hen. The children did some great acting out and made puppets to retell the story. They enjoyed finding out how bread is made and how we get flour from wheat. The children were all very excited to make their own bread rolls!
The children had an amazing time when Ben from the treehouse theatre visited. He did some great storytelling and played his guitar so the children could sing along and everyone joined in. The children chose storytelling outfits to wear and were very involved in the story. The children laughed lots and were animated from beginning to end!
As part of their maths work on 2D shape, the children went off around the school on a shape hunt, they found that there really are shapes all around us!
During the first half of this term the children have had great fun learning about people who help us. They have been busy learning about the important jobs that people do to keep us healthy and safe.
Our local PCSO came to visit and spoke about his job. He let the children try on some different police clothing and showed them some of the equipment he has to carry on him. The highlight was of course sitting in the police car!
We will visit the school library every Tuesday. Please can library books be returned on a Monday.
PE is on Friday mornings with Mr Goldsmith.
Please make sure your child's PE kit is in school at all times. We will be having PE outside so please provide your child with warmer clothing for the cooler weather!
All of the children have their own Sound Book. Please make sure these are in the children's book bags every Friday so the new sounds taught that week can be added. Let us know how they are getting on. Any questions, please just ask - the mornings are very busy as you know and its not always possible for me to speak for very long so if you need a few minutes please feel free to arrange a time after school for a chat. Thank you.
