Happy New Year!
Our topic for this half-term is called Paws, Claws and Whiskers and as the title suggests we will be exploring the world of domestic and big cats and enabling the children to develop their artistic skills and ideas. We will also be learning about lots of animals we often have as pets, both usual and unusual!
Muddy Monday and PE will continue to be every Monday. We would like all children to wear joggers and Velcro trainers, and NO jewellery please! If your child does wear studs it would be easier if they could be removed or covered before they come to school.
Please send a photo in of your pet or a family or friends pet for our class book-thank you.
Ways to help your child
To put their coat on independently and to do it up. Lots of children are still finding this difficult.
To wash and dry their hands when they have been to the toilet.
To dress and undress themselves independently.
To begin to write their names correctly focusing on forming their letters and using the correct case i.e capital letter at the beginning.
To count to 10 and beyond were possible.
To talk about any pets you may have at home or in another family members home or a friend.
We will be doing lots activities linked to our topic such as showing an interest in books, speaking and listening through role-play, singing songs and learning rhymes, continuing to begin to form letters correctly, recognise and writing names independently, mark making, drawing and emergent writing as well as using the Welsh language across the a range of experiences.
Please continue to practice the phonics we have learnt at home.
