Summer 1 Update

Such a shame we cannot be together to start our new topic, ‘Kings, queens and all things royal’. I hope you are getting lots of opportunities to play and explore at home. On the curriculum map this half term I have tried to be more detailed on what we would be doing in school so you can use these ideas at home. Lots of sensory castle play ideas, making crowns and food exploration.

Videos to watch

I have found some videos that may be nice for your children to watch as an introduction and to develop their understanding on this topic.

Weekly Learning Ideas

Budgie class have worked incredibly hard on play skills this year- play is a skill’s we ‘learn’ in school. This is how you can do it home; sit with your child and engage with a toy- even if only for a few minutes a day. It can be bricks, Mr Potato Head, dolls, cars etc. Make sounds, speak like the characters, and show the child how to put it together or take it apart. The more frequently you do this, the more you will see them interact purposefully with that toy and ‘learn’ to use it. This is how the children in Budgie class ‘learn’ to play, they will try and copy you if you practise enough.

Autumn 1

We have been having a busy half term getting to know each other. Here are some photos of what we have been getting up too. 


In maths, we have been doing lots of practical exploration in number, geometry and measures. 


We have been trialing Busy Birds (a free flow session with both child-initiated and adult-led activities). As you can see we have been 'Busy Birds!' Engaging in lots of topic, maths and English based activities.


Our sensory story has been a real hit and the children have loved the story of Kipper "Splosh." They have been really engaged in the changing wet weather in the story.
