This half term our creative theme is ‘On the Farm’. 
The books we will be reading are: On the Farm, Spot goes to the Farm, What the Ladybird Heard and A Squash and a Squeeze. 

We will be singing farm related songs such as: Old Mac Donald, This Little Piggy went to Market, Three Blind Mice and we will also be retelling these stories through drama. 

We will also be drawing and painting our favourite farm animals. 

 

 

Prime Areas of Learning


This half term we will be focusing on Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, and Physical Development.

There will be lots of opportunities to support your child’s development in these areas and they will be embedded throughout the continuous provision, through gentle guidance and support of the practitioners in the setting.

The children will have daily teaching of phonics and this will help to develop early listening and attention skills. Your child’s participation in group time
will support them in making relationships and help them to grow in confidence.

 

Concept Cat


The children will learn a new word each week with the help of Concept Cat. He will tell the children a story all about the word and he will use props to support learning of the new word.
