A very warm welcome to Ladybird Class. This is the start of your child's learning journey at More Park, where they will be provided with the foundations of learning for life.
Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, we are currently not running our usual 'Stay and Play' sessions in the afternoon. We will, however, continue to monitor the situation and we will be inviting all of our parents in to learn with us as soon as we can!
This term the children will continue their school faith journey and we will be learning about 'The Church'. This term we will be learning about the family of God within the church. The children will learn that they belong to this special family and that the church is a holy place where they are all welcome. We will learn about different holy objects in the church and how we can be thankful to those who care for our church.
At More Park each child is recognised as an individual with their own needs. Individual targets are set and are shown on the Target Board so you can regularly see the different ways you can support your child at home. Your child's Special Diary is also very important to their learning and they really do enjoy sharing with the class what they have been doing at home.
If you have any queries or problems, please do not hesitate to contact me either through the school office or email me at Stephanie.Boden@more-park-westmalling.kcsp.org.uk

Welcome back to the children’s final term in Ladybird class! I cannot believe how quickly this year has flown. The children are looking forward to sharing their learning from last term with you in their final assembly next Friday. I am sure that you will agree, this final assembly of the year really showcases the children's amazing development. They really are nearly ready to become Caterpillars!
For this final term, the children have chosen the topic of ‘Fantastic Fairytales'. Thank you for once again supporting the children in picking their new topic using the new 'Google Form' link. As part of this topic we be learning a variety of fairytales and making up our very own alternative endings! We will also be learning to dance in the style of the waltz... a true fairytale dance!
This will, no doubt, be another busy term as we also have a number of exciting summer events coming up, including the Farmers Market, Sports Day and our trip to Wingham Wildlife Park! Hopefully, you will all be queueing up to buy our home-grown potatoes that you can see growing in our Early Years playground at the moment. We will also be baking some yummy jam tarts! I have attached the dates for this and the other various events below, as usual.
Finally, can I please ask that all parents check that uniform and water bottles are fully labelled. I completely understand that lots of labels come off in the wash without us realising, but we are finding that there are a number of uniform items with no names on. Unfortunately, if items are not named then it is hard to return them to the correct child.
Can I please take this opportunity to remind all parents that after you have picked up your child, the Early Years playground needs to be cleared as promptly as possible. Please ensure that your children are not playing on the bikes or the climbing frame as other class bubbles need to travel through this area shortly after us. Your cooperation with this is much appreciated.
Over the half term I re-varnished and restored our beautiful sand pit. The children have really enjoyed playing in it this week! We have also been gifted a water feature, which I am sure you will agree, is beautiful. It is such a relaxing feature of our playground!
