Welcome back! I hope you had an enjoyable break and are ready for the summer term.  This term we welcome Mrs Fiona Harrington to the EYFS team and we are pleased to have trainee teacher, Samuel Barnes back in Trevithick Class.

Many thanks again to all those who completed the questionnaire and the positive comments that we received. Don’t forget you can access this newsletter at http://perranporth.j2webby.com/

SEAL:

SEAL stands for Social and Emotional aspects of learning. Our theme this half term is ‘Relationships’. Please read the attached sheet for how to support your child with their learning.

 

Reading:

It is lovely to see the progress many of the children are making in their reading. Please let me know if your child needs to change a book or if you want a couple of books to keep them going. This is the final term in EYFS and I will be assessing their progress in the key words before they move to KS1. Keep practising!!!

It is important that they bring their book-bag to school everyday. Please make a comment in your child’s reading record as this helps me assess their progress. Thank you! Please check your child’s book bag regularly for notes and newsletters. We will be starting quiet reading on a Tuesday and Thursday morning and hopefully this will enable me to hear them read more frequently.

Trevithick Class Newsletter – November 2016

Welcome back! I hope you have had a lovely half term and are ready for the busy term ahead.

SEAL:

SEAL stands for Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (see attached newsletter). Our theme for this half term is ‘Getting on and Falling Out’.

The Topics for this term

Week 1 Diwali – Let’s Light up the Sky
Week 2 Diwali – Let’s Light up the Sky
Week 3 Diwali – Let’s Light up the Sky
Week 4 The Animal Boogie
Week 5 The Animal Boogie
Week 6 It’s Christmas!
Week 7 It’s Christmas!

This half term we are starting our learning with some activities focussed on Diwali and celebrations. We will be making Diwa lamps, rangoli patterns, tasting Indian foods and looking at how other cultures celebrate special festivals.

We will be also be using the story ‘The Animal Boogie’, playing animal snap and pairs, learning animal songs, role playing the story and looking at the patterns on the animals e.g. leopard. You could look at other animal patterns with your children e.g. tiger, zebra etc. We will also be thinking about how we can describe the animals using adjectives e.g. the slithery snake, the huge, brown bear etc. Have a go at thinking of some awesome adjectives to describe an animal!

We will also be learning about celebrations including Diwali and Christmas. We will be sharing ‘The Christmas Story’ and discussing why Christians celebrate this festival. Both these topics lend themselves to fantastic art – have a go a designing a Rangoli pattern with your child or creating a Christmas scene using junk materials. If you would like more information about our topics or ideas for supporting your child at home please speak to me or your child’s key worker.

Reading and Homework:

All the children have a book to share with you and it is important that they do a little bit of reading every night. I have noticed that some parents are forgetting to record when their child has been reading. Please make a comment in your child’s reading record as this helps me assess their progress. Please continue to read and learn the key words and support your child with their phonics. I will be going through the key words sheet with your child this half term! Our sounds are – ck e, h, r, m, d and g. This half term we are focussing on the days of the week and months of the year. Practise these with your child and encourage them to know when their birthday is. We are also thinking about celebrations – if you have been to any celebrations, for example, weddings, christenings, birthdays, or cultural festivals and would like to share these experiences please send photos or come and talk to the children about these events. Please see the Early Years Talk Homework sheet for ways to support your child’s speech, language and communication development.

P.E:

P.E is on a Friday morning. It is essential that your child has a P.E kit (black shorts and white t-shirt) and they should wear sensible footwear. Please ensure that your child’s name is written clearly in all uniform.

Round Up:

All offers of support for reading practise with the children in Trevithick Class would be gratefully received – please let me know if you are able to give up some of your time. THANK YOU to the parents who are already volunteering. Don’t forget to check Tapestry and upload any “WOW” moments. A quick reminder that children should not be bringing toys into school, the classroom can get very busy and toys go missing which leads to unnecessary distress for the children.

Important Dates:

Monday 9th  and Thursday 12th November- Parent’s Evening (please see me to make an appointment)

Wednesday 14th December 2016- Trevithick & St Piran Nativity at 2pm.

Friday 16th December – Last day of term.

Finally, it is getting cold please ensure your child has a coat in school.

This term we will be learning about the ‘Seaside’ and our local environment.

Continue to practise the key words and use them to write simple sentences.

Maths  Use the sheet to continue to form all numerals correctly. Work out addition and subtraction sums remembering to put the bigger number first! Practise ‘tap and unwrap’ strategy to solve number problems beyond 10.  Collect seaside objects e.g. things found on the beach – count and sort them into sets. Count ‘beachy’ things e.g. the number of wind breaks, buckets, shells etc – make a tally chart of all the things you see at the beach.
EAD –Expressive Art and Design In music we are learning a song about holidays and listening to sounds we hear at the seaside. What sounds can you hear at home, on the beach and in town? Use objects to create a beach scene – discuss how the objects feel, smell etc. Paint or draw pictures of what you enjoy doing on your holidays. Discuss any holidays abroad and what you did, look at holiday brochures and cut and stick pictures of where you would like to go.

P.E:

P.E continues to be on a Friday morning. It is essential that your child has a P.E kit (black shorts and white t-shirt) and they should wear sensible footwear. Please ensure that your child’s name is written clearly in all uniform. Trainers or plimsolls will be needed this term.

Please return it to school. I can then celebrate these achievements with the children. They also support the judgments I make about the children when completing the foundation stage profile.
