To strive for respect, enjoyment and excellence


Welcome to all of those who are new to our Foundation Stage Unit and welcome back to those of you who are embarking on your second year at St. Andrew’s. 

Our topic for this half term is ‘Down my street’ and throughout the first half term we will be encouraging your children to talk about who is important to them, who they live with and what they like. Your child will take 'Talk Book homework' home each Friday, please encourage them to complete their homework themselves by drawing pictures you can help them by annotating what they have said so that the teachers can see all of the great language they have used. 

A few reminders for you,

Early Years Fund is £1 per week paid on Wednesdays at the Early Years gate in the morning. If you would like to pay up front for the whole year you can do this at the office. The money collected contributes to prizes, fresh baking ingredients, Golden Time treats and breakfast for our café area.

Please ensure that your child’s name is on all of their uniform, bags, PE kits, dinner boxes, shoes and coats. As we will be outside in all weather please also ensure your child has their own Wellies in school at all times.
Each Friday Reception children can bring in a book to share from home whilst we 'Drop Everything and Read'.


Today Reception enjoyed their first trip out of school. We went on a walk into Eccles and posted out own handwritten letters into the local post box. You will be receiving your letters soon!

Miss Hill and Mrs Lengden were both so proud of how well everybody listened on out trip. All the children remembered to hold hands with their partners and they followed the safety instructions perfectly.  As we crossed the road Reception used a pelican crossing and learnt that the red man means stop and the green man means that it is safe to cross the road. 

Well done everybody! 26/9/19
