Welcome to Penguins!
We have been having a great time making new friends and exploring our environment.
This half term our topic is 'Who am I?'.
We will be learning all about ourselves.
We have learned about our families; drawing a picture and labelling the people in our family. We talked about our favourite things including our likes and dislikes.
We have also being showing our Mathematics skills by counting objects and naming shapes.
Over the next week we will be looking at 'houses and homes' and thinking about our own homes.
Please bring in a photo of your home to school or email it to email@example.com
Helpful info from Speech and Language Bedfordshire...
Working with parents is extremely important to us and we love hearing about what your children are doing outside of school. If your child does something at home (or out and about!) that you think we would like to hear about please fill in a 'News from home' slip and we will display the news in the classroom. Slips are available in the classroom or to download below.
You can also email us your news to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have also being doing lots of making and art work.
Look! We made some beautiful kites using our favourite colours.
This is is the overview of our learning for the year.
Please remember to keep PE kits in school every day. The children will take them home at half term. PLEASE NAME EVERY ITEM OF YOUR CHILD'S CLOTHING!
Please take time to read with your child EVERY DAY - little and often is best!
Please also sign the children's diary so that they can receive stickers which lead to prizes in assembly!
Remember to complete your child's learning plan with them in the morning when they come into school. This is a good opportunity to help them practise writing their name and think about their learning in school!
Please also help us to help the children by reinforcing the sounds being taught at school. Phonics is the method by which we teach reading and writing. Here are some videos which demonstrate the correct pronunciations.
