P.E and Forest Schools      

P.E. will take place on Thursday afternoon. Forest Schools will be every other Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child brings wellies on that day.

 

Your child will need a P.E. kit that is to remain in school for the half term, and will only be sent home when in need of a wash. Your child will need a pair of shorts, T-shirt and a pair of trainers, clearly labelled with their name. P.E. kits should be sent to school in a bag with your child’s name on and will be kept on their peg.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT ALL P.E. KIT HAS YOUR CHILD'S NAME ON IT

 

Phonics - Read, Write Inc.     

The children learn their letter sounds through the Read, Write Inc scheme. Information sheets to support this will be sent home. Please help your child to learn their letter sounds at home as well as in school and encourage them to identify objects beginning with the sounds, e.g. s – snake, sausage.
 

Writing        

Children will be encouraged to hold and use pencils and other writing implements correctly. They will start by overwriting patterns and when ready will move onto forming letters.

Please help your child learn to write their name correctly.
 

Number      

Your child will start to learn to count, recognise and write numbers 1-10 and when confident will move onto 1-20 then 1-100. Please encourage your child to count objects at home and learn to recognise and write their numbers. We are using a mastery approach towards number through the White Rose Maths scheme. This means that we will begin the term by focusing on smaller numbers (1-5) in great depth for e.g. investigating one more/ less, number bonds etc
