Our new topic this half term is ’All About Me,’ where the children will have the opportunity to talk about themselves and their families as well as exploring the roles of different people who help us such as the police and people who help us to stay healthy. Towards the end of the half term, we will have a mini topic on Halloween, which we will celebrate with a Halloween party!
My Treasure Bag
As part of our topic ‘All About Me,’ we will be sending your child home with a small bag ‘My Treasure Bag.’ We would like you to fill the bag with things that tell us about your child. We will then share the bag in our key worker groups over the next few weeks to help us get to know each other. We will then return the bags and their contents to you! More information will follow on what to put in the bags.
We will be sending a Learning Log home where the #30 Menu
challenge will be. 10 of these need to be chosen over the term. The Learning Log is so that you can show all the exciting things you have been doing at home.
100 Reading Challenge
In addition to the above, there will be a 100 Reading Challenge where parents are encouraged to read a bedtime story to their child. This can be ticked off on the grid and your child will receive a special reward when they get to 100.
