The importance of Early Years...
The early years curriculum is based on learning through exploration and play. There are a number of ways that you can help give your child the best start to school.
- Always be on time.
- Good attendance.
- Home reading and making sure your child brings their book bag to school every day.
- Point out numbers and letters in the environment.
- Count at every opportunity!
- Talk to your child about the world around them. Encourage their curious streak and pose questions starting with ‘I wonder...’
- Ask your child what he / she has been doing in school.
Autumn -half term 1
Our priority during this half term is getting to know each and every child. We want children to feel happy, safe and excited to come to school. Our topic this half term is 'Autumn is Coming!''. Of course, 'Autumn' is the time when the children start school so we will spend lots of time focusing on the children settling in the first 3 weeks, making sure they are happy, busy, engaged and making friends. We will all be getting to know each other.
As September comes to an end and as 'Autumn' is increasingly apparent, we will be meeting Percy The Park Keeper, who will play a large role in our learning, leading and engaging the children in a variety of Autumn inspired activities. For a detailed outline of what Autumn 1's topic looks like, please click on the 'Knowledge Organiser' below.
Keep in touch! We recognise the importance of good communication. So, if
you don’t manage to speak to us during drop off and pick up, please drop us a message on here and we will get back to you as soon as possible. No matter how small or trivial you think it might be – feel free to ask by filling in the form below!
