FS1: The Messy Monkeys 2020-2021
Play dough, Snack and Baking
A weekly contribution of £1 helps us ensure we have fresh play dough each week, a variety of food for snack and baking, including hot chocolate for the forest.
Our forest day is Welly Wednesday. Please send children dressed in clothing ready for the forest; warm layers, wellies and waterproofs.
Our Library days are Monday or Thursday. On your child's library day please return both their library book and library journal, so they can choose a different book and we can reward their efforts in their journal.
We use an online course of thirty-six videos containing poems with actions, these include many lesser-known children's rhymes from anonymous authors and support children's reading skills. If you do not already have a Poetry Basket account ask for our discount code so you can access the resources for free using the link below.
"If children know eight nursery rhymes by heart, by the time they are four years old, they're usually among the best readers by the time they are eight."
