New Year. We hope you all enjoyed the
topic this term will be ‘traditional tales’, which is always a favourite with
the children. It will give them the
opportunity to share some wonderful tales which we will use to teach all areas
of the Early Years curriculum. For
example, it will complement the children’s willingness to communicate their
thoughts; encourage active participation; increase verbal proficiency; provide numerous opportunities for role play
and encourage writing, drawing and mark making.
Additionally, we will be using Lego (due to its huge popularity and
creative versatility) to support and explore many of the traditional tales the
children will be sharing. The children
are already ‘master builders’ and we look forward to seeing their creations
explored through the world of fairy tales.
importantly, we also want to take the opportunity to remind you all to complete
the Wandsworth Primary School application.
The deadline for this is Thursday 15th January 2015.
will be resuming phonics teaching this week with the letter ‘k’. The children did tremendously well last term
with their letter sounds and we are looking forward to their continued
enthusiasm as we progress through the alphabet. As during last term, from
Monday to Thursday, the children are invited to bring in any object beginning
with the letter sound for that week to show at circle time.
always we would appreciate your empty cartons for our junk modelling activities
(with the exception of toilet rolls) and we will collect them at the
gate). Book bags will come home today,
containing the letter / rhyme of the week.
Book changing will resume this Thursday 8th.
please find attached an envelope in which to return the £6 snack money for this
half of the term. We are looking forward
to hearing all the children’s holiday news and a busy Spring term ahead.
all good wishes,
Jo and Fartuun.
