Our first topic is all about ‘Ourselves’ As your children work in the different areas of learning, and in groups doing maths and literacy activities, they will be developing important skills and concepts. During this first topic children will be investigating:
It would be nice if every child could bring in a photo of themselves when they were a baby. Please put your child’s name on the back.
We will finish this topic looking at Diwali celebrations and the story of Rama and Sita.
You can support your child in this topic by talking about their likes and dislikes, making family trees and learning about our local community.
Books to support:
Also this half term we will be looking at Autumn celebrations. This will include:
Our Muddy sessions focus on developing the children's physical skills. We explore how to move around the forest and also the animals that live in our forest. Children observe the effects the Autumn and Winter seasons have on our forest area.
Forest sessions take place each Monday.
Homework Story Sacks:
Story Sacks will be sent home every FRIDAY and must be returned every TUESDAY. Each sack includes a task sheet to choose from, key words, a storybook and resources to support you complete the tasks. Please upload any work or photos completed from your child’s story sack onto their Tapestry account. You will have received your activation email over the 6 weeks. Please contact the school office if you need to reset your account.
We have put together a virtual phonics workshop for you to access with your child at home. This workshop gives you information about RWI and includes some simple rhyming activties to play together at home.
