Autumn Term 1
This term is very busy for the children who are starting school. During the first few weeks, the children will be learning about school life, following new routines and making new friends. We will be focusing on the children's social and emotional well being and ensuring that children feel as settled as they possibly can.
In Literacy, the children will begin to develop their early writing skills, making and learning sounds using Read, Write Inc. Children will be forming letters using ditties to help them remember their shapes and starting points. Children will begin to explore the letters in their name and will begin to write other captions and labels.
In mathematics, the children will begin to count using visual support, naming and writing numbers. They will begin to link number shapes, thinking about quantities and amounts.
The children will have different themes in the setting which will change every 2-3 weeks the themes this term are;
3rd September and 10th September
17th September and 24th September
