Welcome to Class R
Welcome to Class R! I hope you have all enjoyed the summer holidays and that your child is looking forward to starting school.
Ensuring that your child settles into school well is very important to us. Our main priority is to ensure that all of the children are happy, make friends and are able to explore their new environment. Remember- your child will be given a buddy from Year 6 to help with this.
For the first part of the Autumn Term our topic is called 'Me and my family'. The children will be looking at family related stories eg; Grandpa; Avocado Baby; I want my Potty; Funnybones; The Large family stories, Peepo etc and compare these to their own lives. We will be learning about our bodies and our senses and will be labeling simple body parts. The children will also look at their past and present and will share family/ baby photos and observe the changes. We will be finding out about how to lead healthy lifestyles by eating well and exercising. The children will also have opportunities to become creative making paper plate self portraits using a selection of resources and making model houses with construction or junk materials.
Please don't hesitate to come in and see me if you have any questions. I'm here to help.
