What will we be getting up to?

Under the Sea

This half term we have a theme called Under the Sea.

As part of this theme we will be looking at the following stories;

The Rainbow Fish.

Commotion in the Ocean.

Barry the fish with fingers.

Shark in the park.

The drop went plop.

The Lighthouse Keeper's lunch/tea.


Teeth Hygiene Routine

We have started our teeth cleaning routine with the children. All the toothbrushes now have a special cap for protection and hygiene and all toothbrushes are named.

We will be working with the children to show them how to brush their teeth correctly and hopefully make it a fun activity.



This half term we will be looking at Traditional Tales as our children have been showing an interest in sharing and reading/recalling events from stories. We will be looking at how a story is structured and listening to stories without props. We will be acting out the stories and thinking of different endings!

Lending library

We will soon be starting our lending library where you can borrow books to share with your child at home. This is not only to develop a passion for books and reading it also promotes those very important language skills and that precious bonding time.

You can change the book as often as you wish but please take only one at a time and mark it out on your child's index card and likewise mark it off on its return.

Please take care of our books and enjoy them.
