We have all been very busy starting our new year and we are happy to welcome new friends.
Please remember we do PE on Friday morning ,we are happy for the children to arrive at school dressed ready for their lesson as it begins immediately after the Celebration Worship.
Children are allowed to bring water bottles into school which can be refilled during the course of the day from the class water fountain.
During this Spring Term we will be learning all about Animals which will be fun and exciting.We will be celebrating our Christian Festivals both in school and at church .In February we will be learning all about Chinese new year.
Our role play will be a pet shop which will feature many pets for the children to enjoy .
Thank you to all those parents and carers who hear their children read regularly .In the Foundation Stage it would be beneficial if the children could read to or with an adult at home for a short period each evening.Your child’s school reading book and diary should come into school every day. We aim to hear children read three times a week and this is when they can change their books but only if they are familiar with them and have read them at home. For this reason, it’s really important that you fill in the reading diary every time you hear your child read.
We are encouraging children to read with fluency and expression and to understand the text and retell the narrative. You can help by encouraging them to read the same book more than once and by asking them questions about the story, setting or characters. They can even draw a picture or make something from the story or write their own story which we would be delighted for them to share with us.
We would also like to encourage you to practice counting and using numbers and naming shapes. with your children.This can be done in a fun way by using familiar songs and rhymes and on shopping trips.
Thank you .
This Term we have started to explore light and dark .We are going to be reading a variety of books to support our learning .The books will include The Rainbow Fish,The Owl Babies,Can't you sleep little bear?
The Creation Story and Noah's Ark and The Train Ride.There will be lots of exciting activities in the environment to support the children's learning.
We very much look forward to an exciting 2018
