Our topic this term is...
Welcome back. We hope you have all had a lovely half term break. This term our topic is Superheroes. We will be introducing this topic through one of our favourite stories Supertato by Sue Hendra. This fantastic story is about an evil pea who terrorises the other vegetables in the supermarket until Supertato comes to their rescue and saves the day. Throughout the term we will also be talking about real life heroes, the people who help us in our own lives
We encourage F2 parents 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 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.
