It has been wonderful to see the photographs and videos of the children completing their home learning! We have loved seeing the children walking down the stairs with confidence, eating a range of healthy foods and using cutlery effectively.
Our new home learning task is for the children to show off their singing talents! We have been learning a new nursery rhyme each week and we would love to hear that the children are remembering these and reciting them to family and friends.
Please upload photos or videos to Tapestry – if you are unable to access Tapestry online please let us know.
Another great big THANK YOU to everyone who has been practicing zipping up coats with their child. We have set this as homework for one more week as we have really seen a fantastic improvement in the children’s ability to zip their coats unaided! The children are so proud when they achieve this and let the adults know immediately! We are so proud of them too.
Please continue to practise with your child and upload their success to Tapestry – if you are unable to access Tapestry online please let us know.
Thank you everyone who has embraced the story books! We have had some lovely feedback from parents and children, so we are very pleased that the children are enjoying the stories!
We are adding more stories to the box so please feel free to change your books as often as you would like. We will continue to change the books in class on a Tuesday – please ensure your child has their story book and green book in their bag on a Tuesday.
Please can we ask you to look after the bag, some of the books are coming back without the bag. The bag will help to protect the books on the journey to and from school!
If you have any questions about the story books, please come and have a chat with us!
This week, your child has come home with a story book and a green book. The story book is for you to read to them at bedtime (or any time they would like a story!). The green book is for you both to record their enjoyment of the story. There is a page to record the title of the story and what they thought of the story (a simple smiley face is enough!). Then on a blank page they can draw a picture of their favourite part of the story – this is at the appropriate age and stage for your child; for some it may just be a few marks on the page and you may need to talk to them about what they wanted it to be, for others it may look more recognisable. Or you may want to draw it with your child and show off your own artistic talents! Alternatively, some children may shy away from this completely and not want to record anything at all at the moment, just have a conversation with your child about what they enjoyed in the story – you don’t have to record anything. The most important thing is that story time is fun for everyone!
