Aire - Foundation
Welcome to all our children both old and new!
We have had a happy start with all children settling well and taking part in lots of activities all around Foundation. This half term our learning will be based around ourselves and our skills, our families and our school. We will be linking our art and topic work to this focus. We have already baked numicon biscuits together practising our stirring and mixing skills – you could practise this at home, encouraging your child to hold the bowl with one hand and stir with the other. Great for developing the strength and control necessary for writing!
Please help your child to develop their independence by putting on their own pumps and shoes and putting on and fastening their own coats. It helps us get outside quicker but more importantly helps them develop fine motor skills, perseverance and high levels of self-esteem.
The YEP is coming on Monday to take our photo for their New Starters supplement. Please order any copies you would like for your albums!
Our focus in F2 over this half term is to develop our personal skills being able to play together, share and follow instructions. In English we are learning our first sounds and beginning to hear and write them in words – practising sounds and words each night at home is vital to help your child become confident. Start as you mean to go on – this should be one thing you insist happens everyday! In Maths we are developing our number skills becoming confident recognising numerals, knowing 1 more and 1 less than small numbers and beginning to make totals using 2 numbers.
