We supply milk free to those children who want it. Children should bring a snack for playtime: fruit or vegetables only please. Please write your child's name on their snack box or fruit.
Dinner money is to be paid via GroupEd
What we are learning:
Our current topic for the Autumn Term is 'Enchanted Woodland'. We will develop our Personal and Social, Literacy, Maths and Creative skills and Knowledge and Understanding of the World through learning about real and imagined woodlands. We will look for inspiration in the many stories which include woodland animals and magical creatures. Will explore woodland habitats, objects and wildlife and share our thoughts and responses in our speaking, writing, artistic and digital creations.
How you can help:
-With your child, read the books they bring home in their reading bags.
-Share other books, stories, poems and songs with your child, every day. Any reading is good but maybe you can find some stories (Traditional Fairy Tales are good) set in woodland.
-Talk to your child. Answer their questions. Ask them questions. Talk about woodlands.
-Practise the weekly spellings with your child.
-Involve your child in everyday counting, use of money and measurement.
-Spend time with your child outside. Explore a woodland, park or garden to find wildlife, make things or make up stories.
