Communication and Language
We will be recapping Phase 1 Phonics, reading rhyming stories and playing listening games. The children will take part in small group activities promoting turn taking and effective communication skills.
The following link will take you to Phonics Play with lots of Phase 1 games
Playing board games and card games at home with your children really help this area for development.
Personal, Social, Emotional Development (PSED)
Your children will be learning lot in the first few weeks of school, taking on new information and building relationships with the staff and children. They will be very tired!! Please support this area by ensuring that they get enough sleep and have the opportunity to talk to you about how they are feeling.
This is a focus on health and self-care and their gross and fine motor skills. Please help your children at home by encouraging independent dressing and discussing why they need to eat a healthy diet. To develop their gross motor skills, we will be spending time on the wall bars, at the Timber Trail and building their core strength through a variety of activities. Please support your children at home by going to the park and getting your children to be as physically active as possible.
