We are looking forward to an exciting Autumn term together
Miss Tomlinson and Miss Throssell work with the children in F2.
Miss Slack and Mrs Riley work with the children in F1.
Miss Smith works with both classes each day.
F2 children should bring their reading books and diaries everyday. Please bring PE kits ready for our PE session on Monday afternoon. PE kits can stay in school all week.
Our topic this term is...
Our first topic this academic year will be 'Ourselves'. This will give everybody a fantastic opportunity to get to know each other and learn more about our bodies, emotions and relationships. For the first few weeks of term, we will be concentrating on modelling how to play and learn in our new classroom, we will be using the "choose it, use it, put it away' rule to help teach the children to care for their new classroom. This will be reiterated throughout the year.
We encourage you to visit Tapestry regularly to have a look at what your child has been learning at school and add photos and comments about what you have been learning about at home. If you need help logging on to Tapestry, please talk to Miss Slack or Miss Tomlinson.
How children learn in the Early Years Foundation Stage
The EYFS is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years’ experience should be happy, active, exciting.
Through play and exploration, your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development. Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:
· Communication and language;
· Physical development; and
· Personal, social and emotional development.
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:
· Understanding the world; and
· Expressive arts and design.
Maths at home
Miss Tomlinson has made a leaflet which aims to give parents ideas about the sorts of things you can do with your children to improve their confidence and attainment in Mathematics through every day, playful activities.
