This half term topic will be "Shopping"


Podobny obraz

Over the next few weeks those of us in St Nicolas will be learning about ‘Shopping’. This unit is part of the Early Years programme of the International Primary Curriculum.


The children will learn about the local area and the diversity within it when they go to visit local shops and markets. They will take part in group and class activities such as setting up shops and pretending to be shoppers and shop-keepers.


As the children become involved in real and imaginary shopping they will learn about the practical use of at least one language. They will listen to stories and make their own books. They will learn that they need to know about numbers to be able to ‘shop’.


As the children sort and classify the shopping they will be looking for patterns and thinking logically.


Living During our visits out of the school grounds the children will learn about keeping themselves safe. They will have the opportunities to make choices about what to buy. As always, I welcome any support or suggestions which you may have. Watch the class bulletin board for more details as the theme progresses.



Every Monday we change our reading books. Please make sure you bring your reading record with your book.


This half term we have learnt following sounds: i, n, p, g, o, c, k. Please reinforce them with your child. Ask your child to give any examples of words beginning with the sounds we know so far.


Please talk to your child what you did during holidays so we can share our holiday news when we come back after Christmas.


 Please encourage your child to practice zipping the coat/jacket up.


Reinforce reciting numbers 1-10 and counting 1:1 numbers 1-10 and for more able children 1-20.
