WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS WEEK:

SHAPES plus CHILDREN IN NEED

 

Monday

ORCHARD DAY – DON’T FORGET YOUR WELLIES!

Today we are having a “Squirrel Hunt” in the Orchard using resources provided by Children In Need.  We will let you know how your child gets on and you may like to make a donation to the collection box on the Signing-in desk (Area of Learning: shows understanding, cooperates with boundaries, routines/can usually adapt behaviour to different events, social situations from Personal, Social & Emotional Development).

 

Wednesday

The children have been using some shape mats to create “paths” across the hall, so we are hijacking their idea to practise naming common 2D shapes such as circle, square, triangle, oblong (Area of Learning: Beginning to categorise objects by shape/shows an interest in shapes by playing with shapes from Mathematics).

Wednesday pm: 

Outdoor play plus: use name labels to identify initial sounds.

 

Thursday 

Today’s activity is a challenge to find examples of the above shapes in the hall, among the toys and outside (Area of Learning: Notices simple shapes and patterns/shows interest in shapes in the environment from Mathematics).

Thursday pm:

Friday

WEAR YOUR PJYAMAS TO PLAYGROUP (AND GIVE £1 TO CHILDREN IN NEED)

We will be sharing some of the resources provided by the appeal such as films and stories about some of the children who have been helped in the past, and talking about how they why they needed help, how they are different to us (Area of Learning:Learns that they have similarities and differences that connect them, and distinguish them from others/knows some of the things that makes them unique, can talk about similarities and differences from Understanding the World).

Friday pm: 

Outdoor play plus: Learn the words and actions for “Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear”.

Every year we ask our parents for feedback on a variety of measures, including communication. In line with our feedback from last academic year, we're endeavouring to improve the transparency between home and playgroup so that you can keep track of your child's learning and sensory experiences.

Each week we now make our playgroup planning available to parents and carers. As well as receiving an email notification, the information is updated on the website, the FaceBook page, and our secret group for current parents and carers. We hope this will help you to enrich your child's learning at home!
