We are learning how to become independent learners by choosing our own activities and learning, and also how to put on our own coats and shoes.
Please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing for the weather e.g. coats, as they have access to the outdoors for most of the day. Also, a book bag is useful for bringing home reading books, letters and drawings etc.
PE is on a Wednesday, and children will need to have shorts, t-shirt and plimsolls or trainers. It will be inside PE.
In class this half term, Autumn 2, we are learning about "People Who Help Us"
We are learning about all the different people who help us in school, families and in the community, e.g Firefighters, Police, Dentist, Doctors/Nurses and Vets.
Read Write Inc (phonics)
We are beginning to learn our phonic sounds in Read Write Inc. Children learn the sounds first and then learn the names of the letters. This encourages the children to be ready to segment (sound each sound/letter out) and then blend (put sounds together) in order to begin to read.
Parents may find this a useful link in finding out about how we teach early phonics and reading.
PE is on a Wednesday afternoon. At present children are only removing shoes and socks, but as the term progresses they will begin to learn how to get dressed for PE independently. It will help your child enormously if they they practise this at home.
Pie Corbett stories
We encourage children to learn stories through repetition and using actions. Each half term we learn a new story.
We have some special "WOW" words that we have been learning and could be used at home to support the children's growing vocabulary:
We have adapted the story of "The Rainbow fish" and have been learning the words and actions to help re-tell it.
Here is a copy of the story...
The little Red Hen - Autumn 2
This half term we are learning the story of the Little Red Hen. The children have learnt this story quite quickly, and I am sure that they would love to show you!
Here is a link to our story....
