Please check your child’s red folder every day for homework activities and letters. School information will be available via the school App unless you have opted for paper copies. Class information will be sent in diaries or red folders.
The children continue to learn initial sounds. Please continue to use your phonics pack at home to encourage your child to make and read words. The children are being encouraged to predict what will happen in stories using our puppet Percy Predictor and ask questions about stories using Quincy Questioner.
The children are developing skills during play. These include problem solving, resilience, teamwork, sharing, planning, motor control and many more.
Numeracy and Mathematics :
Children are enjoying learning about numeracy through active play.
We have all been learning about our number friends in Ten Town, domino patterns, counting forwards and backwards within 20 and enjoying our daily counting to 100 workouts!
Health and Wellbeing :
We will be starting our health and wellbeing lessons using the PATHS programme. During PE lessons with Mr Martindale we will be concentrating on games skills and throwing and catching skills.
Broad General Education :
The children have decided they would like to learn about the jungle. We hope to develop a jungle area in the base and have fun finding out about all the animals that live there.
How Can You Help at Home? :
Please make sure you name all your child’s belongings and check their red folder daily for homework or letters. Read with / to your child each day, whether its a school reading book, a library book, a bedtime story or simply let your child use their imagination and retell the story from a picture book. Thanks 🙂
