PSED: To talk about ourselves in positive terms. To become more independent. Getting ready for the transition to year 1.
PE will take place every Friday. Your child will need to have a PE kit in school so they can get changed.
Your child will need:
· Plain white t-shirt
· Black jogging bottoms, leggings or shorts
· Black pumps or trainers
PLEASE LABEL ALL CLOTHING!!!
PLEASE REMOVE ALL JEWELLERY
We will continue to send home reading books every Friday. Please try to regularly read your child’s home reading book with them and talk to them about the stories. What did you like the best? What happened in the story? What happened at the beginning? middle? end?
Encourage you child to find familiar words and sounds.
We ask that you return your child's book bag on FRIDAY so that their books can be changed.
Stay and play sessions.
Look out for an invitation to your child’s stay and play session. You will receive a text message when it’s your child’s session. The classes will be taking it in turns. We would really appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you.
Your child will be working in an outdoor learning area every day as part of the curriculum. Could you please send your child to school in appropriate clothing. Now that the weather is getting warmer please ensure that you apply sun cream before school and send your child with a sun hat.
Every week, we will send home a ‘Proud Cloud’ for you to complete. This gives you a chance to let us know when your child has done something good at home and any next steps you think your child needs. Your views are really important to us and help towards your child's development.
