Welcome back to Early Years, Autumn Term 2018 !
This term we have lots of new children and we welcome all our new families!
In our pre-school we encourage children to develop their communication skills with plenty of talk in every possible way, such as games, conversation, stories and role play. To encourage your child to develop speech, we promote "Let's Talk More Everywhere" activities. Each month, the Let's Talk More " poster will be displayed, with great ideas to encourage your children to talk!
Our Topic this Autumn and Winter has two parts. Our Literacy and role play topic is "Bears." We will be acting out stories, such as "Goldilocks" and "Going on a Bear Hunt". We will be painting pictures of Paddington Bear and Winnie the Pooh. Our role play corner is an exciting bear's cave and we will be making bear paw cookies, marmalade sandwiches and porridge.
Our second topic is based around "Reduce, re-use and re-cycle." We would like to help the children understand the importance of taking care of our environment and respecting the resources we have. We hope to do lots of re-using materials and make things to take home. We also will be sorting materials into re-cycling bins and playing "refuse collectors" with the small world toys.
Remember to read our Foundation Stage newsletter, to keep up to date with activities.
