Curriculum

 'Me'

 Our learning focus for this half term is 'Me'

Through our play we will be finding out about ourselves and others, exploring our senses and feelings, making friends and talking about our families.

We will explore a 'treasure'  basket of resources each week that is linked to our focus and there will be additional resources and activities on offer in our provision that we can access whilst we are learning through our play. 

Learning Together Target 

 Each term we will have a Learning Together focus and during the Autumn Term this will be looking at Personal, Social and Emotional development (self confidence, managing feelings and making relationships).  The adults who support our learning will be observing, planning and reviewing the progress we make through purposeful FUN play activities that are grounded in the things that interest us in our play space.

Key Information

Class Dojo

Ask your child about their class dojos. These are points awarded for good behaviour. Sign up for our parent app with a code from your class teacher, so that you can track your child’s dojo online.

  

Clothing and Outdoor learning

We are very lucky as a school to have some amazing outdoor spaces to explore and we will be looking to take advantage of this as much as possible. Therefore, please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor activities i.e. coats and hats when it’s cold and sun cream in the summer months.

Please ensure that all clothing (including school jumpers and cardigans) are named. That way we can return them to you should they get lost.
