Welcome to Red Parrots!

People who help us

 

We have started our new topic of 'People who help us' and have enjoyed learning about Doctors and health professionals. We learned about what Doctors do and what equipment they use. We did lots of work on 'Healthy Eating' and talking about what we need to have a healthy lifestyle.

These included

-A healthy diet

-Plenty of sleep

-Lots of exercise

-A positive attitude.

We also learned about our body parts and labelled pictures of the human body. We also talked about our skeletons and made our own 'skeleton art' out of straws!

This week we are learning about the Police and how they help us. We will be talking about making good choices and finding out about the different jobs Police Officers do. 

 

For your information here is the 'Development Matters' document to show the statutory requirements for the Early Years Foundation stage.

 

Working with parents is extremely important to us and we love hearing about what your children are doing outside of school. If your child does something at home (or out and about!) that you think we would like to hear about please fill in a 'News from home' slip and we will display the news in the classroom. Slips are available in the classroom or to download below.

Some reminders...

Please remember to keep PE kits in school every day. The children will take them home at half term. PLEASE NAME EVERY ITEM OF YOUR CHILD'S CLOTHING!

This is is the overview of our learning for the year.

Please take time to read with your child EVERY DAY - little and often is best!

Please also sign the children's diary so that they can receive stickers which lead to prizes in assembly!

Remember to complete your child's learning plan with them in the morning when they come into school. This is a good opportunity to help them practise writing their name and think about their learning in school!

Please also help us to help the children by reinforcing the sounds being taught at school. Phonics is the method by which we teach reading and writing. Here are some videos which demonstrate the correct pronunciations.
