Our topic this term is "Clothes"
Over the next few weeks those of us in class St Nicholas will be learning about ‘Clothes’. This unit is part of the Early Years programme of the International Primary Curriculum.
Through dressing up and talking about all kinds of clothes the children will learn about people who are different from themselves and about the links between school and the wider world. They will have opportunities to play alone, alongside and with other children.
Throughout this theme the children will have lots of opportunities to talk about clothes and ask questions of visitors. They will listen to the story of ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’. We will count, order and sort clothes.
We will spend lots of time involved in dressing up and pretend play and through these activities find out about the world about us.
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: w, th, z, ch, qu, x, nk, ng . Please reinforce them with your child. Ask your child to give any examples of words beginning with the sounds we know so far. For more able children ask them to blend CVC words.
Please practice writing names and numbers 1-10.
Please talk to your child what you did during holidays so we can share our holiday news when we come back after the half term break.
Reinforce reciting numbers 1-10 and counting 1:1 numbers 1-10 and for more able children 1-20.
Practice naming and recognising 2d shapes.
