As always, we would like to form a ‘learning-link’ partnership with you, in this way we can work together to help your child learn in the best possible way.

Please help by capturing your child’s curiosity; this means keeping your child’s teacher

informed about what he/she is most interested in during this IEYC unit of learning and

finding out what he/she would like to learn more about. This helps us to plan relevant

learning experiences that will appeal to your child’s curiosity. You can do this by writing a note to your child's teacher in their reading diaries or completing a 'Wow moment' which are available from Reception staff.


We hope this IEYC unit of learning will help your child learn new knowledge, increase their understanding and develop new skills that they can demonstrate to you.



We look forward to forming a successful learning-link partnership with you so that we can

support your child’s learning together!
