Our learning journey this half term...
This half term we will be focusing on the topic 'Me and My School.' Each week the children will have a different question to explore. This half term will be spent settling into school life and making lots of new friends! The children will be playing lots of games to help them to learn the names of their classmates and to support with turn taking and confidence building. We will share familiar stories and spend time working in small groups. The children will have many opportunities to talk about themselves and the people who help them at home and in their community.
The children will gradually be introduced to 'skills' based whole class sessions. In maths sessions the children will be singing songs, counting and recognising numbers. We will begin RWInc sessions once the children are ready, here, your child will be introduced to sounds and will put these together to read and write words.
After whole class sessions the children will have many opportunities to use the environment both indoors and outside to retell stories, write, paint, draw, explore shape and number and create using a variety of different media and materials.
In RE sessions we will cover the topic of 'Creation.' We will explore this story in the Bible and will take time to enjoy and talk about the world around us.
Each week your child will bring home a Foundation Newsletter so that you can find out what we have been focusing on and what the plan for learning will be the following week. Every 6 weeks or so you will be invited into school to share your child's learning journey and to talk about their next steps.
