Curriculum Information PowerPoint - Autumn 2021
As promised in the St Lawrence Post, we are now pleased to send you a link to our St Lawrence YouTube channel where you can access the Curriculum Information Presentation for your child's year group.
The Curriculum Information presentation will be followed by a 'Get to Know You' live video session with your child's class teacher during the week beginning 18th October. Apologies that this date is slightly later than originally stated, but we need the extra time to resolve some minor technical difficulties. This is your opportunity to have an informal chat with the teacher in a group video link, as well as being able to ask questions arising from the Curriculum Information Presentation. We ask that any questions are emailed to the class teacher direct, in advance of the 'Get to Know You' session: email@example.com
EYFS - Sycamore Class
Hello Sycamore Class
We have come to the end of another fantastic week full of great learning. We have been making the most of the sun. We enjoyed walking around the school grounds and listening to the sounds of Autumn.
Our topic this half term is ‘All About Me’. If you have a family photo, we would love a copy for our class display. If you have trouble printing a photo, please feel free to email it to us and we can print it out in school.
PSED: The children have been busy building and developing friendships and learning our school routine over the last few weeks. Next week we will be focusing on kindness. We have enjoyed starting our kindness jar and we will be creating friendship flowers. During our discussions we will talk about our emotions with a focus on happy.
English: Next week our focus story is 'Kindness makes us strong'. We will also look at lots of books about our feelings. We are going to start visiting the school library next week and the children will borrow a book to bring home for the week.
Phonics: We will be continuing our phase 1 activities and tuning into sounds. Our focus will be on body percussion.
Maths: We have really enjoyed our Numberblocks sessions this week. Next week we will be exploring the episodes two and three. We will be developing our anchor sheets and finding different ways to represent the numbers
To support our class learning, have fun on a sound hunt and listen to the sounds in the environment. Look for print and numbers in your environment. Talk about numbers and count items up to 10 e.g. steps or number of plates at the table. Share stories with your child at home every day. Talk about the front cover, predict what might happen and ask questions about the text. Enjoy singing nursery rhymes and identify rhyming words in stories.
