Welcome to Early Years

We are the youngest children at Stakesby.

Our Nursery children are called the Super Squirrels and Reception children are the Wise Owls.

Our Teacher and Early Years lead is Mrs Tacon

Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Walker, Mrs Locker, Mrs Parker, and Mrs Mason 

Super Squirrels: Our Forest School session is on a Wednesday. Please make sure that you have weather-appropriate clothes and footwear and a spare pair of shoes to wear around school.

Wise Owls: Our Forest School session is also on a Wednesday . Please make sure that you have weather-appropriate clothes and footwear and a spare pair of shoes to wear around school. 

P.E: Wise Owls' P.E lesson is on a Monday. Children are, however, required to have their P.E kit in school all week to capitalise on opportunities for outdoor learning/extra P.E sessions wherever possible.

P.E kit should consist of a plain white t-shirt, black shorts/tracksuit bottoms and trainers. Any earrings should be removed before the lesson.

Homework: Our homework consists of a phonics book that will be sent home on a Monday and brought back the following Monday.

As well as a reading book, each child will have a 'sharing book' that can be taken home to be shared with parents/carers.

Tricky words will also be sent home for practise as well as in school. The words will be changed once the child is secure with them.
