Rockets have had a great start to the year; the children have settled in well and are having fun with their new friends. They have been learning the rules and routines in class and have been busy exploring the different areas of provision.
Our topic for this term is all about me. We are going to be looking at how we are similar and different to each other. We will be looking at our bodies and skeletons and naming key parts of our body. We will also be looking at our feelings and how to manage our feelings.
We will be focusing on counting this half term, we will begin by counting to 10 and then beyond. We will also be looking at beginning to recognise numerals to 10. We will also start looking at 2D shapes and naming them, focusing on square, rectangle, circle and triangle.
Literacy / Phonics
The children take part in daily phonics activities. The children will be focusing on their listening ears and differentiating and naming key sounds in the home and the environment around them. We will also start to look at musical instruments, the noises they make and how this noise can be changed.
We have PE on a Friday. We will be looking at space awareness and speed including changing direction. We will be using our sticky kids CD to learn about moving our bodies in different ways and gain special awareness.
We encourage children to take off and put on their own shoes and socks. Please help your child practice this at home.
We have a messy table available every day with different textures for the children to explore and get creative and messy. The children will be doing lots of paintings and collage this term linked with our topic.
We have forest school every Monday, this term the children will be using the environment to create art work as well as building dens and having snacks cooked on the fire.
Lots of you have been replying to the 2Buildaprofile email which is great. It is lovely to see what the children have been doing at home. If you would like to add anything to your children’s profile simple reply to my email.
Our stay and play session this half term will be held on Tuesday 16th October 10:30-11:45.
