Welcome to Disney class - Foundation/Year 1!
Hope you had a great break with lots of learning opportunities. It is great to see the children excited and ready to learn. This term we will be learning about Percy the Park Keeper . We will be discovering different materials. and how they are used. We will also be thinking about people that help us and how to keep ourselves safe around fireworks. When you are out and about talk to your child about different materials and how they are used.
Within Mathematical development we will be taking part in lots of counting activities involving missing numbers. Perhaps have a look for numbers in the environment e.g bus numbers, house numbers.
In Numeracy we will be learning numbers bonds to 20 through lots of problem solving activities. Please continue to count at home to 100. Everyday we will count in 2's, 5's and 10's.
We will be doing PE on Monday and Thursdays so can you please make sure PE kits are in school.
Homework will go out on a Friday and marked on Wednesdays. These are activities to do with your child, so please enjoy and have fun!
We would encourage children to read or listen to a story everyday. If your child has a favourite book we would love to share it in school.
Thank you for your continued support.
