Happy New Year and welcome to the Spring Term in Foundation Stage. Our topic for this half term is “People Who Help Us”. We will be learning about people who work in the police force, fire-fighters, medical workers and postal workers. We will also have a themed week for Chinese New Year and we will be taking part in our whole school 'One World' week where each class chooses a different country to learn about. After half term we will be asking the children what kinds of jobs they would like to do when they grow up.
As always, we encourage the children to be as independent as possible. Many of the children can now zip up their coats, do buttons and fasten Velcro independently but many still need more practice, particularly with putting gloves on. We start doing PE in the hall wearing PE kits this term. The children are expected to get changed independently and taught how to keep all of their clothes together to avoid that one lost sock at the end of the lesson. Please make sure all uniform and PE kits are labelled and if your child comes home missing a sock, vest or anything else do let us know or have a look in our lost property box.
The children are usually much more confident this term and are beginning to blossom and show their true colours now that they know all of us better and are more familiar with school routines. This is a lovely term to see children progressing and becoming ready for Year 1.
Please do come and speak to us if you have any concerns or queries or would just like an update on your child's progress.
