The children have been settling in to the new routine, and we’re all happy to see one another. The children’s behaviour has been brilliant. We work hard to be positive, encouraging, and clear about our routines and expectations. This is really paying off, and you can be proud of how independent and friendly your children are.
Social and emotional development is always important to us, as is communication and language. Children all develop at different rates, but if you ever have any concerns about your child’s language development, come and talk to us. There is a lot of support available to give children a boost, and it all helps. Getting a good vocabulary early on is hugely beneficial for their whole educational future.
Our area of interest that we will be bringing into our learning, focuses on Nursery Rhymes. We are working on this with Reception and Year 1. You can help at home by learning nursery rhymes, getting books from the library and reading funny rhymes. We will be looking at clocks for Hickory Dickory Dock, going round and round the garden with shape and colour, learning number rhymes, and lots more. Look out for updates on our board outside the class, and observations on tapestry.
We will be getting involved in music and PE in school, attending some assemblies, and working on the whole school RE topic of creation. We have a wonderful pack of classic books that we will be reading as part of the whole school Talk for Writing project. We are building a resource of story and activity sacks that you can borrow and share at home
We are going to be very busy, having lots of fun.
