An outline of our day
We have P.E. every Thursday starting from Autumn Term 2.
Music sessions take place on a Friday morning. The purpose of these sessions are to support the children's learning within the area of expressive arts and design. During these lessons, the children will learn to:
- sing melodic shapes (such as going up and down or down and up)
- sing the pitch of a tone sung by the teacher
- sing a variety of traditional nursery rhymes and songs
- clap syllables in words and phrases
- play percussion instruments
- express their feelings about different pieces of music
- and most importantly have fun!
We will enjoy getting muddy and exploring at Forest School, in Autumn 2.
What you can do to help at home
It is really important that we work together to follow, guide and support your child's development of learning. Please do share with us anything new that your child is doing at home, anything you think they need support with and also any special moments.
You can do this by using you 'Tapestry' app, sending in a sharing moment on a honeycomb or by simply telling us at drop off or pick up times.
Just a few other things you can do to support your child's learning and development at home are:
- Allow your child to be as independent as possible. Can they get themselves dressed? Can they put their shoes on? Can they do up the zips or buttons on their coats? It is important to give them time to practice.
- Each day, share a story together and ask your child questions about what they have read, to check how well they’ve understood the story.
- Play some sound games together like: eye spy, what letter does my object start with? Can you think of a word that starts with...? Play alliteration games big bear, slithering snake, green grass.
- Choose rhyming stories to read like 'What the ladybird hear', 'Fox socks' or 'Room on a Broom'. If you read the same rhyming story often then your child will eventually join in.
- Take some quality time to talk to each other.
- Make some special time together to have fun. This could be playing a board game, building something out of lego, cooking, acting out a story with teddies/mini figures, painting a picture, making something out of recycled materials, making some play dough or dancing.
- Sing nursery rhymes together like: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive or Five little monkeys, Humpty Dumpty.
