Our weekly Little Wandle phonics homework is set on Google Classroom every Monday. Reading books are given out and should be handed back in every Wednesday to be changed. Library books are changed every Friday. Your child's home activity book will be given out at the start of every half-term full of new activities for them to complete each week. Staff will ask for the books to be sent back into school at the end of each half-term so that the children can celebrate and share all of their learning at home with the rest of the class.
Our topic this term is entitled 'All About Me'. Our focus for the children will initially be to ensure that they are happy and settled leaving their carer and coming into school, sharing and talking about their feelings, making friends and learning new routines. During the first 6 weeks, the class teacher will complete every child's baseline assessment through practical activities, discussion and observations. This will enable the staff to plan for your child's next steps in learning. Staff will explore feelings and emotions with the children as they learn to regulate their own behaviour using the story 'The Colour Monster'. They will learn about the environmental changes as we move into the season of autumn and in mathematics will learn about the numbers 1, 2 and 3 as well as exploring concepts linked to shape and pattern. For a more in depth detail of our learning this term please have a look at the Autumn Curriculum Overview on the link below.
