Welcome

Mrs Hall is the class teacher in Rubies. She is supported by Miss Haver, who is a Nursery Nurse and the key worker for children in Nursery. Mrs Harrison is our Cover Supervisor and teaches the children in Rubies one afternoon a week. 

Our learning

This half term we are focussing on Night at the Museum. In History we are learning about The Great Fire of London. In Art we are learning about different artists and portrait art. In Geography, we are learning about mapping and in DT we are thinking about food. Our RE topic is 'Caring for Others'.

Autumn 2 Topic

In the morning, our class is made up of children from Nursery (FS1), Reception (FS2) and Year One. On an afternoon we are joined by Year Two.

Always Homework

In Rubies, we are expected to always:

- Work towards our SMIRF targets

- Read at least 3 times a week (we are working towards our whole school reading target!)

- Learn our spellings (sent out on a Friday to be tested on the following Friday)

We have an Oxford Owl page, where your child can access lots of free books to read online, in line with their developing reading skills. The web address is:

Provision for FS1

At the moment, we offer provision for FS1 all day Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We also offer provision on a Thursday and Friday morning. Provision is run across the days and is optional to the sessions which you indicate on your form. Any changes to the sessions agreed upon must be indicated as soon as possible, unless it is an emergency.

Funding is available for thirty hours (depending on eligability) and  fifteen free hours which can be shared across settings. If you wish to add to those hours a fee of £3.00 an hour is charged as well as a small charge of £2.00 should your child require a school dinner, but is more than welcome to bring a packed lunch.

Also on entry to our FS1 unit, you will be asked to complete a Provision agreement.

A copy of both these  forms can be found below.

Important Documents

In EYFS we follow the Development Matters, which breaks down children's learning into age bands. A copy can be seen below. On the entry of any child into EYFS, we encourage parents to have a look at the document "What to expect, when"  This document brakes down Development Matters into "I Can" statements.
