We will begin the school term with a topic of ' Why we are Special' The children will be looking at how they are different and the same as each other. Creating self portraits, understanding that they are part of a class as well as part of a school, and how we work together to make our school great.






The Reception children will be beginning their “Read, Write inc” programme and learning how to correctly form letters. We will be holding a phonics meeting for parents to keep you up to date with how we do things at Biddick Primary. 


You can check the Read, Write inc website for more information and learn with us!



 Nursery Library

Don't forget library is on a Monday for the Nursery children. The children will choose a book independently during their nursery session and bring it home to share with their family members. The book will need to be returned each Monday in order for us to exchange it for another book. The children know how precious books are and that they need to be handled correctly with respect.




Being ready for School

 This term we are gong to be working on developing the children's independence. We will be encouraging them to put on their own coats, socks and shoes and put their bags away and hang up their coats. This works best if you encourage the children to do this at home too! We will of course continue to support those who need it. 




Although we have some topics which we cover every year, such as, Ourselves, Autumn and Christmas  most of our topics arise from the children's own interests.


 The curriculum in the

foundation stage is based on the seven areas of learning laid

out in the Development Matters in the Foundation Stage document,

implemented in September 2012, which can be viewed below.
