Friday 26th October- School closed for half term
Welcome to the new school year. Mrs Larnder-Cox and I met many of you during our home visits, it was lovely finding out all about you. We have been very busy making name cards, pictures and displaying photographs of you from our visits to your house and when you came to visit us. We are looking forward to finding out more about you in the year ahead.
Our first topic is ‘Nursery Rhymes!’, during this topic we will be learning about what your children are good at, how they learn and what their favourite Nursery Rhymes are. To help us get to know your children, we will be asking them to do specific tasks e.g. can you colour a picture where we will look at their pencil control and grip of a pencil, can you count my cubes, what shape is the clock? Let’s jump as high as we can and many more.
Things you can do at home:
•Practise writing your child’s name with them, making sure they hold the pencil correctly.
•Ensure that they are able to recognise their name when they see it.
•Pointing out letters in their name in the environment, look there is the letter at the start of your name.
•Counting cars that you pass on your way to school.
• Looking for numbers in the environment, on doors, car registration, on lamp posts, in the shop etc.
• Counting as you go up the stairs to bed.
•Singing nursery rhymes before bed – I will be sending a list home of some of the ones we are covering at Nursery.
Thank you to all the parents who have already brought in their snack money, if you haven’t already done so please could you bring in the money in an envelope with your child’s name. The amount for this half term is £7. Please can you make sure all your children’s clothes have their names written on the label or sewn on the inside.
We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead, getting to know your children.
Thank you for all your support.
Kind Regards, Mrs Brown and Mrs Larnder-Cox
