We will also be visiting Stock's Wood to go pond dipping and explore Minibeast Habitats.
Its going to be a very busy and exciting term!

Tips for Communicating with your child:
Check out the New government site Hungry Little Minds for activities to support children's Language development from Birth to 5 years. There are loads of Great activities ideas that are easy to do at home. https://hungrylittleminds.campaign.gov.uk/
In Nursery and Reception children are working towards or within the Read Write Ink Phonics scheme. Children who are not yet ready to access the scheme fully will access some Phase 1 phonics activities from Letters and Sounds to support them in developing their early phonics skills.
(Please see the Reading page for more information on Read, Write, Ink phonics)
In Phonics children learn the skills needed to read and write successfully and get the opportunity to apply their learnt skills. At home please make sure children in Reception regularly look at their phonics sheets in their homework file and practise saying these sounds.
Also regularly look at their reading book, which is phonetic, not forgetting to look at the questions in the covers of the book too.
Number recognition games can be very exciting for your child and free too!
Reading numbers on doors, car registration plates, on letters, on clocks, on calendars. Going on number hunts around the house or garden area are great fun!
Counting games can be done whenever and wherever. Whilst waiting in cues, whilst out shopping, whilst sitting in the car or even at meal times.
