Autumn Term 2023 – Relationships
This concept teaches children about important relationships. We focus on developing strong relationships with the children through play and trust. We will be exploring our environment indoors and outdoors. We will learn about our families and explore similarities and differences in families.
How do we learn?
When the children are not working with an adult, they have access to the continuous and enhanced provision. These areas are carefully planned for and are enriched with challenges to support the skills that the children are learning. We have members of staff to nurture and support the children during their time in the continuous provision challenging, observing and asking questions. We also have a wonderful outdoor area which is part of our continuous provision.
Important information:
  • Snack – fresh fruit or vegetables to be brought to school daily please in a labelled container.  Grapes must be cut in half. Please ensure containers and drinks bottles are labelled. 
  • Please ensure all items of clothing, including shoes are labelled clearly.
Developing a love for reading…
In Progression Step 1 we aim to ignite children’s love of reading through an inviting reading corner for the children to choose books that interest them, explore how to hold stories as a reader and retell familiar stories using stick puppets and props. The children will build their early reading skills through sharing stories, songs and rhymes together, as well as building their talking and listening skills.
Read Write Inc-
We use RWI as our phonic scheme in school. Videos linked to the sounds we have taught will be shared on class do jo. Please support your child by watching the videos with them at home. Here is a video explaining more about RWI.
