"I love Etz Chaim because I do lots of painting." Eden, Foundation Stage
My name is Miss Ricart and I am from Barcelona. This is my first year at Etz Chaim and I am really excited to start this journey. I will be working closely with Mrs Bean and Mrs Levy as the Foundation Stage Practitioners. The Jewish Studies Teachers are Mrs Olsberg and Mrs Pieters and the Ivrit Teacher is Mrs Meyer. I am looking forward to working with you and your child!
Throughout the year the children will be given the opportunity to learn through play in a safe and stimulating learning environment. Each half term the children will be learning about a different IPC topic that will be integrated with their Jewish Studies learning. All children learn in different ways and that is why we will be working around their interests to cover the different areas of learning. The children will have access to the inside and outside classroom in a free flow basis. All activities will be fun, interactive and engaging to match the needs and abilities of the children so as each child can reach his or her full potential.
The children will visit the school Library twice a week where they will be given the opportunity to borrow a book to take home. They will participate in a taught PE lesson once a week and have opportunities to use the gymnastics equipment as well as develop their ball skills.
I am looking forward to the exciting year ahead!
