Our Learning this half term...
This half term our theme is...
This half term our theme is 'Celebrations'. At this time of the year there are many different celebrations happening and the children will be learning about how different cultures and communities mark these special occasions. Each week the children's learning will be based on a story or non fiction text that links to a particular celebration. Please read each week's information letter as this will give more details on the skills and knowledge your child will be learning each week.
We work with a company called SEND Supported at school and they are releasing newsletters each week offering support and guidance to parents of children who many have additional needs in school. Please find below a link to these newsletters:
There are also lots of other resources and information available on their website. The 'Things to do Issue 2 - Resources' file has some lovely activities for all children regardless of whether they have additional needs or not. There are lots of great visual puzzles and games for children to play so please have a look if you can. There are also resources available now to support with developing children's memory skills in 'Thing to do Issue 3 - Resources.'
