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 in becoming independent learners.
Children are more likely to engage with their learning if presented with meaningful contexts 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 on 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!
Please note:PE will take place on Monday and Friday. It is essential that children with earring have them removed before the session.
Staff are always willing to discuss ways in which you can help your child at home. Feel free to ask if you are in need of some inspiration or ideas about a certain area of learning!
