Our topic this half term:
Me, my family and my friends.
Welcome to the beginning of the Autumn term. We hope that you all had a wonderful summer break and enjoyed the sunny days!
This is a very exciting term. The Early Years staff are looking forward to getting to know your children and to welcome back the children who have already started their learning journey in Holly Class, our Nursery.
The Early Years Team work together to provide all the children with exciting learning opportunities, making it a relevant and enjoyable experience for all our learners. We communicate with families weekly, through messages in the children’s home-school link books and have an open door policy, where we are happy to speak to parents.
This half term Early Years children will be focusing on learning linked to the theme; ‘Me, My Family and My Friends!’ Learning opportunities are both teacher directed and child initiated, where play is encouraged in order to develop valuable learning. The Prime areas of learning are particularly important as children need to secure their social skills, language and communication and physical skills, as a basis for all learning. We will be supporting the children in settling in with new routines and expectations.
The children will be taught to recognise the ‘Super Six Learning Powers’ these are; Commitment, Collaboration, Creativity, Determination, Resourcefulness and Reflection to aid successful learning.
Please speak to a member of the team if you have any questions or information that is important regarding your child. In the meantime we hope that you and your child have a very happy and enjoyable year at Linslade Lower Early Years.
