Personal, Social and Emotional Development

We will be

Encouraging the children to independently make choices (e.g. where they will play, who they will play with)

You can help at home by....
Encouraging your child to make simple choices for themselves (e.g. do you want to wear a dress or a skirt? Do you want an apple or a pear?) 

Communication and language

We will be

Working more in small and larger groups to increase listening and attention skills, e.g. small group hello time, large group circle time.

You can help at home by....
Encouraging your child to listen to topics of interest to them. Ask them questions and find out how much they know. E.g. after watching an episode of Paw Patrol, ask questions about what the Pups did. 

Physical development

We will be

Working more on our fine motor skills. We will be working our smaller muscles in preparation for writing.

You can help at home by....
Exploring activities which will strengthen you child’s smaller muscles (e.g. cutting, threading, using tweezers) Don’t forget to share these activities with us on Tapestry! 

literacy

We will be

  Using more skills regarding predicting what will happen next in a story, particularly when children are familiar with a story.

You can help at home by…
Reading regularly with your child and talking about their favourite stories. Encourage them to tell you what will happen next. 

maths

We will be

Exploring quantities of objects and talking about ‘more’ and ‘less’ to make comparisons.

You can help at home by…
Counting objects and talking about ‘more ‘ and ‘less’ (e.g. Harry has got 2 biscuits and Mummy has got 3. Who has more?)
