Shared Learning Session - Developmental Movement Play

Here you can take a look at the presentation used in our Shared Learning session, along with photographs of the event.

Thank you to everyone who came along!

Developmental Movement Play - presentation for parents

This week in Birch we will be focusing on the affects that human activity have upon the world. Focusing mainly on recycling, endangered animals and global warming.

The children have taken this work very seriously and have created posters that are displayed around the classroom to make people more aware!




Learning Journey 'At Home My Child Has...' Notes - print them from here!



At Home Focus Observations - This is to give you an idea of what we are learning/going to learn at school and to give you a possible focus for any Learning Journey contributions, should you want one. Listen out for your child 'showing what they know' while you play or chat. There is no right or wrong way for a child to 'show what they know' - sometimes they might be eager to share their learning with you, chatting about it freely and including ideas in play...and other weeks not so much! Please feel free to record what you see or hear in any form you like; photographs, work or pictures your child may choose to do, notes for their Learning Journey, or not at all! The example we give you is one taken directly from the EYFS Exemplification Materials and is there to give you an idea of how WE might record the children's learning through play at school. Have fun!


The children are having lots of fun playing in the puddles at playtime. If your child would like to splash in the puddles at playtime, please send wellies into school in a named carrier bag. Thank you!



Don't forget to come in and share your children's Learning Journeys on Monday mornings and Wednesday afternoons!


Ever wonder which skills your children are learning through play?  Here is a link that you might find interesting:




Phonics and Reading:



Wish your child would say more than "nothing" when you ask about their day? Try using these sneaky questions when you chat to them (borrowed from a parenting blog...too good not to share!).




How do we write letters at school? This sheet gives you the phrases we use.
