Hello and welcome back. A big warm welcome to all our new children and families.

In Amber Class we work closely with parents/carers to set the foundations of children’s first steps in their learning.

We are very much looking forward to the year ahead and supporting your children through their school journey.

This term we will be learning about each other and our families through the topic Magical Me.  We aim to help settle the children so that they are confident to begin to talk to others less familiar and develop strong relationships with key staff. To make connections between features of their families and others and talk about who is important to them.

Each week a child will bring a family box home where they can put photos and objects in to show and display.

We will be learning lots of songs and rhymes and listen to short stories, music, and play instruments whilst developing play skills and language using a variety of props.

We will have lots of time and fun to explore and develop our interests, playing with different materials using all the senses.

We will be busy developing our physical skills and independence whilst playing with gloop, paint, pulses and playdough and moving around the classrooms both inside and outside.

Children are also encouraged to take books home weekly for carers to read to them to begin to instil their love for reading and sense of exploration.

Exciting times for everybody!
