Autumn Term 1
We would like to welcome all of our new starters to Victoria Road Primary School and Nursery. Some of you have joined from our Nursery and know the setting well, others have come from far and wide to make a fantastic start to their schooling with us.
During our first term, we will be looking at getting to know each other and ourselves. Our topic, 'Marvellous Me' will look at what we know about our bodies, how we stay clean and healthy, how to stay safe and much, much more.
Children will begin their Literacy learning in RWI. They will begin to learn the sounds that will support them in all of their early reading and writing. This strong foundation will be used to then support all of their writing about themselves.
In mathematics, the children will begin count using visual support, naming and writing numbers. They will begin to link number shapes, thinking about quantities and amounts. We will also be looking at early calculation and children can be amazing mathematicians with the right support.
The children will have different themes in the setting which will change every three weeks. Our next topic will be decided by the children's interests within the setting.
We run frequent Stay and Play sessions in Foundation. Please read the weekly Foundation and Nursery Newsletter for information about our next session.
Children will need to bring their book bag into school each day. Once children have learnt a range of sounds reading books will be sent home with a reading record to track their reading at home and in school.
PE days are Fridays. Please can you ensure that earrings are removed on this day.
We have an open door policy so please get in contact if you have any questions.
