September Update

Dragonflies Class have had a wonderful start to their school journey. They have settled in well, made new friends and joined in with our school routine. 

This half term our topic is 'Marvellous Me' where we will be learning about each other, our families and keeping healthy. This week our key text is 'Elmer'. During our story sessions we will discuss similarities and differences, look at characters and practice using our listening skills. Our keyword this week is ‘unique’. We will be discussing what this word means and thinking about what makes us all special and unique. At home you can help your child by using our keyword in a sentence.

During phonics we will be focusing on our listening skills with our phase 1 activities. In Maths we will be counting and looking at the days of the week with our daily calendar.

During our topic sessions we will look closely at colour and changes.  We have lots of lovely activities planned such as painting on ice, an Elmer story tray to recreate the story and a message centre in the writing area.
