Hello and a big welcome to our new children in Shining Start. This half term we are learning all about you, your family and your interests. We are starting this half term learning the rules, behaviours and routines of the school day, as well as carrying out activities as part of our theme 'all about me' such as drawing self-portraits, talking about the different members of our families and thinking about what interests we have!
Over the next 6 weeks we will be reading some of our favourite traditional tales which will help with transition, rules and routines which will include 'The Three Little Pigs' and 'Little Red Riding Hood'. As we finish for half term we move onto our Halloween theme where we will make potions, carve pumpkins and read books including 'Christopher Pumpkin'.
Our PE sessions are on a Tuesday and Thursday so please send your child in their PE kit on these days.
Homework will be given out on Friday 16th September and will be marked every Friday, so please send your child's homework book in each Friday.
Reading with your child is one of the most important things you can do at home with your child! Reading books and diaries will be given out to each child for you to read at home and write in their diary. Please read with your child at least 3 times per week.
