Service in the Community
Our Christian value for this term is Trust.
"The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them" Ernest Hemingway
"Trust yourself! You know more than you think you do!" Dr. Benjamin Spock
We look forward to seeing on Twitter how you have shown our value of Trust. We know that we can trust you all to look after one another through this difficult time.
We love learning in the Caterpillars! This term we will be learning at home about ....
How to show trust to others by learning at home and trusting others to stay home too to keep everyone safe. We will be building upon our learning of the Prime areas and especially by learning our own family daily routines. We will be learning to take turns and share toys. Developing friendships by staying in touch with our friends and being imaginative in our play with family members. Daily counting, phase one phonics and listening to stories. Joining in with the repeated refrains in stories. Climbing, balancing and exploring different ways of moving during our daily exercise with our family. Developing skills such as throwing and catching. Singing songs and nursery rhymes. Looking at books. Being creative with our mark making. Learning to complete a simple program and looking on our school website for ideas for our learning each day. Looking after our family at home and looking after the NHS doctors and nurses to stay safe in our community by staying at home.
Developing a love of reading
We aspire to develop a love of reading in nursery through reading and sharing stories. You can help by sharing books with your child at home. Sharing books are available to borrow from nursery or from our amazing St. Faith's library. During the Covid-19 lockdown we have boxes of books at the school gates which you may borrow. We do encourage parents to point out print in the environment such as shop signs to their child to help develop pre-reading skills. You could encourage your child to talk about the story using the pictures. Please see the weekly newsletter for further suggestions of activities to support your child in their learning at home. We warmly welcome any parental observations towards your child's learning journey via Tapestry.
