Welcome to Leigham Primary.
We are so pleased to be joining you and your child as they embark on their school learning journey.
We are looking forward to getting to know your child and the things they like and enjoy. It will really help us if you are able to fill the 'All About Me' bag we will give you on your home visit. This will enable us to focus our activities on the things that interest them, making their learning more relevant and enjoyable.
This term we will focus a lot on PSED (Personal, Social and Emotional Development), helping the children to settle, make friends and become curious, confident learners.
We will start teaching phonics and maths in groups once we have assessed all the children.
As the children explore the activities on offer we will be observing them and publishing these on Tapestry for you to see. Please feel free to add any comments. We would love you to upload any moments you are proud of and want to share, e.g. any out of school achievements, your child telling a story, or creating a model.
This term we will be focussing on the Early Learning Goal statements (see attached document).
Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)- Understanding of the feelings of other people. Forming and developing friendships.
Communication and Language (CL)- Learning to listen and respond to others.
Physical Development (PD)- Practising holding a pencil correctly and using it with control.
Literacy (L)- Listening to and retelling stories.
Mathematics (M)- Recognising numerals and counting objects accurately.
Understanding the World (UW)- Having a sense of the world around us, such as homes, family and animals.
Expressive Arts and Design (EAD)- Exploring a variety of construction materials to create models and projects.
P.E. will be on a Friday.
Please look at a book with your child at least three times a week. Don’t forget to sign the reading record!
