Welcome back into the 5th school term.


A few changes to take a note of:

- PE is every Thursday, and we ask that your children arrive to school in comfortable PE clothing, with sensible trainers for running. Your child will remain in their PE kit for the rest of the day.

- Our entrance and exit is now the main nursery door at 8.40am and 3pm. Please keep a safe distance from others and bring an umbrella and waterproof coat on the wet days while you are waiting for your child/children.

- Tapestry will still be used for observations in school and home learning if we are told to self isolate for any reason, please also use this to contact us if you need anything.

This week we made worry dolls to help with any worries that we have post lockdown and returning to school. We listened to the story of ‘Silly Billy’ by Anthony Browne and created our own worry dolls to take him and do any worrying for us. Great work Robins ☺️

We have been working so hard to apply new sounds that we have learnt in RWI to help with our spellings. Emelia demonstrated this brilliantly with her independent writing today. Great writing Emelia! 😊

Educare started to grow their own beans today just like Jasper in the story ‘Jaspers Beanstalk!’ We are testing what flowers need to grow and how to grow the biggest and the best beanstalk.


Today in our Educare bubble we created Gingerbread Men to go with the story we are learning about this term. Luckily none of the snuck off and ran away, they were delicious! 

Remote Learning

Due to the latest Government announcement, Mount Wise Primary School will be closed for the remainder of the term and all learning will be completed remotely, online (tapestry journal for EYFS). Please contact the office for more information if you are currently not registered. This is updated daily.

This week in Foundation we have been learning all about Diwali, an Indian celebration also known as the 'Festival of Light'. We watched a video to see what they do during this celebration and compared it to festivals that we celebrate. Using clay, we made Diya lamps and decorated them with paint and glitter.

Welcome back after a week off recovering from all of your hard work. Well done to everyone who completed the maths homework online for Numbots. Use your login that we sent home with the reports at the end of term, or we can send out new logins if these have been misplaced. This term we will be learning about Celebrations, and answering the question 'What do we celebrate?' Starting with Bonfire Night, also known as Guy Fawkes, on Thursday 5th November 2020.

We completed the first half term in our new class as Robins. Well done to everyone for settling in so well and following our class and school rules brilliantly. We said goodbye to our friends and celebrated a hugely successful half term with a (slightly early) Halloween Party. As we wouldn't be allowed to trick or treat this year due to COVID19 regulations, we celebrated with party games, party food and various spooky Halloween activities in school. Everyone dressed up for the occasion and looked fantastic! See you next term for our Autumn 2 term, which takes us up to Christmas.

This week we have been super busy making our rainbow fish for display, bird feeders in Forest School on Friday and learning the story of 'Goldilocks and The Three Bears'. 

This week we have been busy making crabs using pipe cleaners, red cup cake cases and goggly eyes for our display, for our 'Under the Sea' topic. These were a little bit fiddly to put together, but they look fantastic! Well done Robins. Can you make anything related to our topic at home and bring them in to show your class mates?

This week we have really immersed ourselves into learning all about 'Under the Sea' and the story of The Rainbow Fish. Take a look at our topic learning wall with our mindmap of what we already know, and what we have learnt so far...

This week we have been busy getting crafty making rainbow fish collages, rainbow fish fruit kebabs for homework, starfish for our display and we made clay tree faces in forest school on Friday....





Well done to everyone settling in so well to Robins class. Everyone says goodbye to their parents very well each morning and comes into school ready to learn. We have been learning about the class and school rules this week, and learning that it is important to take it in turns and to share. In forest school on Friday, Mrs Fox helped us to toast marshmallows on a fire and eat them! Yum Yum!

Welcome to Foundation at Mount Wise Primary School. We are the Robins and our school day starts at 9.00am and finishes at 3.15pm. We have all settled well into our new class and made lots of new friends. This is going to be a fun year, even with the COVID19 restrictions in place. Please keep an eye out on 'Tapestry Journal' online to see what your child has been up to each day and see their progress within the EYFS. We have got stuck straight into work this year, and started by learning to write our names...
