Term 2 - Superheroes
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Our PSED focus for this term we will be starting the Jigsaw curriculum. This terms topic is Celebrating Difference.
Communication and Language
We have started to look at story telling and will continue learning the skills we need to tell stories. This terms stories will have a focus on our superhero theme.
In preparation for term 2 please ensure you send your child in with a plain t-shirt, black or navy shorts/trouser and a pair of dark daps or trainers. All items must be named and placed in a named bag which can remain in your child's classroom.
We will start doing PE the week beginning 6/11 with a focus on movements in a space.
In a couple of weeks we will start to send reading books home for children to read at home. It is very important that each of them have a book bag that comes into school every day. These are great for protecting the books but they also help the children see books as precious things and reading books as a valuable activity.
Book bags can be bought from the school offices.
If you have any questions about anything, please come and chat to any of the Early Years team.
This term we will begin learning our phonic sounds. We will learn a new sound everyday which will include an action and a rhyme for how to form the letter.
