Welcome to the exciting start of your child's learning journey at Leigham!
Over the next couple of months, we will witness your children settle into new routines, begin building lovely friendships and start their journey towards becoming independent learners.
Children are more likely to engage with their learning if presented with meaningful context and a keen interest in the subject matter. Therefore, the path we take to explore new concepts and skills this term will be based solely in your children's 'favourite things' (as discussed on home visit).
Thank you for all the completed forms so far!
This term we will have ample of opportunities to discuss growing and planting as we think about Harvest. This special occasion will be marked with a Harvest Festival. There will be the chance for you to watch your child take part in the key stage one festival where our class will sing a rehearsed song!
Christmas will fast approach us this term...we might even have a visit from the special man in red!
Key statements being focussed on this term:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
Show understanding and cooperate with some boundaries and nursery routines.
Communication and Language (CL)
Understand 'who', 'what', 'where' in simple questions. For example, Who's that/can? What's that? Where is?
Physical Development (PD)
Begin to be independent in self-care with regards to toiling, washing and drying hands and putting on coats to access the outdoor area.
Listen to and join in with stories and poems, one-to-one and also in small groups.
Explore the idea of number and quantities using songs and rhymes.
Understanding the World (UW)
In pretend play, imitate everyday actions and events from own family and cultural background. For example, making and drinking tea.
Expressive Arts and Design (EAD)
Experiment with blocks, colours and marks.
Please read with your child at least three times a week. Don’t forget to return the 'book experience' text on a WEDNESDAY.
