Library Day Wednesday
We have enjoyed making harvest soup this week, using vegetable peelers and knives to peel and chop the vegetables. This was working towards one of our curricular aims this year (see below) to teach your children how to prepare a healthy snack. Please talk to your child about making and eating soup in school. We also have a big focus this year on healthy eating to look after our teeth and the importance of cleaning them.
We are still encouraging your children to wash their hand thoroughly and regularly to help stop spread the virus. Please remind them to wash their hands as soon as they come home from school too.
Please continue to make sure your child is in weather appropriate clothing as we are outside every day come rain or shine! ( welly boots/rain coat/warm coat/ hat)
Please see Tapestry for regular updates about your child's learning.
We work closely with the Nursery team to build on children's development so far and continue their learning journey to achieve their next milestones.
Our Early Years Foundation Stage Curricular goals
We aim for your child to be able to:

If you are looking for more physical activity for your child, I would recommend:
for some simple PE challenges, focussed on personal bests. They include things like "how many times can you pass a ball around your tummy without dropping it in 60 seconds?" Some require equipment e.g. a beanbag and a hoop, if you don't have these at home, you could always improvise with a balled up sock and a skipping rope/belt laid out in a circle/ draw a circle in chalk.
The section at the very bottom of this page is full of stories and songs that the children might enjoy, some of which they will recognise from school (so far we've enjoyed the jolly phonics songs and the big number song together as a class.)

If any of the links on this page do not work - please let us know in school, there is an occasional technical hitch, which we would be eager to solve if it ever crops up.
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!
