We strive to provide a nurturing, stimulating, engaging curriculum for your children.

We will be spending the first few weeks getting to know each other and linking our activities to the children's interests.

We will be encouraging the children to develop their fine motor skills and will have an activity for Finger Gym available each day... this might be making bracelets and necklaces by threading the beads onto string; using keys to unlock the correct locks or even trying to use tweezers to pick up and place pom poms or marbles onto a stand. These activities will develop the muscles in hands and fingers to help with beginning to hold and control a pencil for writing.

The children will be taking part in daily phonics sessions and envelopes will be sent home for you to practise what we have learnt in class. We will also be sending a reading book home each night. Please find 5 minutes each day to listen to your child and share the books they bring home, in a quiet place. This will help their progress and develop positive learning behaviours at home.

PE will be on Wednesday and Friday but please bring their kits into school on a Monday and leave it all week to ensure they have it available every day.

The children are already loving the dojo rewards that they have received and this is a great way for the children to be rewarded for everything fabulous that they do! We have sent home log in details for you to be kept notified whenever your child receives a dojo in class. Please try to register with your log in details as this is a great motivator. 

If you ever need to speak to us, don't hesitate to see us either before or after school. Or if you need more time please see us to arrange a time to meet.
