School Library Folders
Your child will bring home their library folder during the with a new book to share with you at home. Please ensure your child brings their school library folder to school the following week on their chosen day, which will then give them the opportunity to choose a new book.
Every weekend our class mascots will visit you and your child. They both have diaries for you to record the wonderful adventures you will have together. You can add photographs to the diaries if you wish. Please look after our class mascots as they are very special. At the beginning of each week the children will share their diary entires with their friends in Nursery.
Home Learning Opportunities
This year, your child will bring home a scrap book with '100 things to do before you're 6'. We would love you to try and tick some of the things off the list and take photographs to add to your child's scrap book! The children can bring them in after each half term to share with the rest of the class!
Ways you can help at home
There are so many ways that you can support your child's learning at home.
We will be updating this section of our page regularly.
* Encourage your children to get dressed by themselves and put on their own shoes and socks. Daily we maximise opportunities for your children to develop their self-help skills. We encourage all of the children to put on their own coats. It would be very much appreciated if you could also take the time to teach your children how to do the zip and buttons on their coat. We strive to teach your children independence.
* Provide opportunities for your children to practise writing their name. Use shaving foam, gel, gloop, paint and chalk. Use paintbrushes and water outside to practise writing letters too! When modelling how to write their name, use lower case letters and encourage correct letter formation.
* The children have been exposed to many letter sounds during the Autumn Term. We introduce the letter sounds in the order they are introduced in Jolly Phonics. The following letter sounds have been introduced; s, a, t, i, p, n, c k and e. Ask your children to show you the actions to accompany each sound and listen to the songs on YouTube together. Encourage your children to look for objects beginning with the sounds when you are out and about! Please don't hesitate to ask if you would like any more information or ideas about how to help your children learn their letter sounds.
* Numbers are all around us! Take every opportunity to recognise and talk about numbers in the environment. Encourage your children to look out for numbers; on signposts, on houses, car number plates, on buses, drain covers, postboxes and bus timetables. I wonder where else you might see numbers? Provide opportunities for your children to read and write numbers. Model the correct formation of each numeral for your child.
