Our weekly swim sessions remain a firm favourite. We have all gained lots of confidence and are now independent in the water.
Please keep a look out for fantastic photographs of us having fun as we learn!
This half term we will be settling back into our routine after the summer holidays. During the first half term we will be learning all about 'The Farm' and reading lots of books associated with it. Our Maths focus is Number which is always a firm favourite!. We will have our Harvest Festival Concert towards the end of the term as well as a trip to a real farm.
During the second half term we are learning all about 'Traditional Tales' and our reading books are 'The 3 Little Pigs' and 'The Gingerbread Man' and then obviously some Christmas books towards the end of the term! We will also be looking at 'Who', 'What', and 'Where' during Hello and story. Our maths focus this half term is measurement, so we will be learning about size, weighted and all the vocabulary that goes with it! We will also be enjoying the build up to Christmas and all our very festive Primary traditions. We will also be going on a school trip to Knowsley Safari Park to visit their Grotto.
Home School Dairies
We ask families and carers to return the Home School diary each day, as this will enable the class staff to provide comments and information about you child's day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with the class teacher.
Individual Education Plans
These set out the priority educational targets that your child is working on for the term. IEPs are updated each term and sent home. If there is anything that you would particular like us to be working on please just let us know.
All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning style and levels for each child. Every Friday, your child will receive a new reading book and this will be sent home with them to enjoy with you over the weekend. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories and fill in the reading record to let your child'd class staff know how they have gotten on and the please return to school on the Monday morning.
Magic Moment Books
Your child will also be sent home a Magic Moments Book. This is an exciting way to share all the wonderful things that your child does at home. Its also a way to record special moments, anything that your child does for the first time and anything that they enjoy doing. We would also love it if you could send the book back in at the end of a half term or after a holiday so that we could share your child's amazing achievements.
We kindly request that you send in £2 a week. This contributes to any weekly resources that class might need.
