Happy New Year 2021!
We hope you had a wonderful and restful holiday and we look forward to seeing you back in school soon!
Please support your child by talking about what happened at Christmas time in your household. How did you celebrate New Year together?
Draw or paint a picture to show your family celebrations.
Our new topic for the first half of the Spring Term is
We will be finding out what the children already know about Pirates.
What is a Pirate?
Also talk to your child about what a Pirate might wear and what they might need to take on their journey.
What could be in a Pirates treasure chest?
Can you draw what you think the treasure will look like?
Learn the song and make up your own actions!
Using your toys, try to arrange them onto two shelves, boxes or pots. Then make up your own number sentence to show how many you have got altogether. Try to write your number sentence down.
Explore different ways of sorting your objects.
We will also be thinking about positional language.
Play a game - hide a toy in different places and your child has to describe where they find it. Give clues such as 'it's under..... it's behind........ it's inside ......... it's next to ..........' etc.
Use directions to help them find the right place.
Then swap roles
