Welcome to EYFS Portugal Class!

The class teacher is Mrs Cylkowski.

Mrs Galietti and Miss Wilson work in both England and Portugal class, but are based in Portugal class.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank parents for supporting their child on their journey as they start school. The children have settled in really well this term.

A few reminders as you begin to bring your children into school:

+ The classroom doors open at 8.45am. The doors shut at 8.50am. 

+ You can bring your child into school and help them put their belongings away. 

+ Remember to say goodbye to your child. This means alot to your child and helps them to start their day well. 

+ Please ensure your child has the correct uniform which complies with the Academy uniform policy.

+ Water bottles can be bought into class. They must contain only water.

+ P.E will begin on Friday 1st November. Please remember to put your child's P.E kit on their peg.

+ Please communicate with the teachers and teaching assistants, we are here to help and want to support your child as they settle into school. If you would like to speak to a member of staff, we can arrange this at an appropriate time.

+ Please look at Tapestry to view your child's online journal. You will be able to see all of the fantastic learning they have been doing in school. Thank you to all parents who have engaged with this so far this year.

+ Smile, have fun and enjoy your child's first year in school. Remember we are here to help and support you and your child on this journey.


Our new topic is 'Let's Read a Story'. During this topic we will focus on communication and listening skills and being respectful to others.

 We will read the following texts:

+ The Gingerbread Man

+ Penguin

+ Shark in the Park

+ The Nativity

+ Father Christmas Needs a Wee

  • Twinkl phonics suite

  • Jolly phonics letters and sounds app

We look forward to the rest of the year,
