Your child will come home with a home learning book, this is a chance for you to see what your child's individual targets. We will also put in some simple questions for you to ask your children these are normally silly questions that get the children to think and use their imagination. For example if you could have any animal come to tea, who would it be?
Reading is a fantastic way to help your children develop their communication and language skills, the more their hear, the more they will say.
Counting when you are around the home or out and about, count chairs, stairs, doors, colors, toys, cars anything you can think of to count will help them develop their mathematical thinking.
If you would like any games to play with your child please ask, we have a selection that you can borrow.
Please remember to provide your child with a spare set of named clothes in case they get wet outside or have an accident.
We ask that you provide nappy bags or a carrier bag that their wet clothes can be put in please.
This week we have learnt to leave our grown ups and make new friends in class! Although their has been a few tears we have been very impressed with how quickly the children are settling into their new routines. Well done to everyone (both children and parents!) for making this such a positive start to the school year.
We have explored our new classroom and the resources that we can play with.
