Welcome to Red Parrots!
We hope you have been having lots of fun with us at Livingstone!
You have all settled in really well and are enjoying your new learning experiences.
Our first topic has been 'Who am I?' and we have been talking about ourselves and our families as well as different houses and homes and celebrations.
For the last two weeks of this half term we are thinking about Autumn. We will be learning all about different things we see in Autumn and taking an 'Autumn walk' around to school. We will use the things we find to help us create some Autumn artwork and will do some writing about Autumn time.
We have had a great time exploring our new environment and making new friends!
For your information here is the 'Development Matters' document to show the statutory requirements for the Early Years Foundation stage.
Working with parents is extremely important to us and we love hearing about what your children are doing outside of school. If your child does something at home (or out and about!) that you think we would like to hear about please fill in a 'News from home' slip and we will display the news in the classroom. Slips are available in the classroom or to download below.
Please remember to keep PE kits in school every day. The children will take them home at half term. PLEASE NAME EVERY ITEM OF YOUR CHILD'S CLOTHING!
This is is the overview of our learning for the year.
Please take time to read with your child EVERY DAY - little and often is best!
Please also sign the children's diary so that they can receive stickers which lead to prizes in assembly!
Remember to complete your child's learning plan with them in the morning when they come into school. This is a good opportunity to help them practise writing their name and think about their learning in school!
Please also help us to help the children by reinforcing the sounds being taught at school. Phonics is the method by which we teach reading and writing. Here are some videos which demonstrate the correct pronunciations.
