  • PE

    PE

    PE is on a Wednesday or Friday morning. Children need a white t shirt, black shorts and gym shoes or trainers.

    PE bags can be left in school ready for the session. They will be sent home at the end of each term to be washed.

    Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled.

     

    Physical Development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.

    Suggested Activities:

    • Allow your child to practice being more independent. For example, dressing themselves without help, learning to put their own coat on and fastening it up etc.
    • Play games with your child that involve taking turns e.g pair, snap, board games etc.
    • Play pretend shops using food or toys etc. from your house. Play the role of customer or shop keeper, modelling the vocabulary that these people would use in real life.
    • Do arts and craft activities that involve cutting and sticking. 
    • Make playdough together (If you Google ‘Dough Disco’ on YouTube there are lots of fun activities to do with the playdough)
    • Go on a walk and look for signs of the season.
    • Play outside with your child e.g throwing and catching a ball, go on a bike or a scooter ride.

    Reading Books

    When each child is ready, they will be allocated a reading book.

    Initially this may be a ‘Talk About’ book with no words alongside ‘SATPIN’ sound cards that should be used to build words.
    This will progress onto a school reading book and a second ‘Reading for Pleasure’ book.

    Please ensure that all reading resources are bought to school each day.
    Levelled Books will be changed every Monday and ‘Reading for Pleasure’ books will be changed every Wednesday.

    Please attempt to read with your child a minimum of twice a week for at least 5- 10 minutes. After each read please record in your child’s reading record  in order for them to earn certificates for their hard work.

  • Tapestry

    In Early Years we record all children’s achievements on Tapestry, an online learning journal.
    Through this website/app you can see pictures and videos of the things that your child gets up to whilst in school.
    You can also upload things from home too-from an excellent attempt at homework to a day out at the park!
    Look for the logo above when downloading the app to your phone or tablet.

    If you are having problems, speak to any EY’s staff member-we are happy to help!

  • This Half Term our topic is …

     

     

     

  • Helping your child at home…

     

  • In our phonics lessons we learn the individual sounds that each letter makes when it is in a word.

    To the right are the sound mats showing the sounds that your child has been learning.
    If you want to practise these at home, checking that your child can identify the sound, that would be great.

    If you are unsure of any sounds our staff will be more than happy to help.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Another way to help is to check that your child can recognise numbers from 0-20.

    Why not question them about numbers in the environment?

     

     

     

     

    Practise some pencil control with your child by drawing shapes and patterns or writing numbers or letters.
