In maths, the children will be looking at butterflies to explore symmetry. We will also be learning about doubling and halving numbers.
Please can you make sure your child brings in a jumper or cardigan and also a sun hat and sun cream.
Learning to Learn
This year we will continue to embed the Learning to Learn skills across the Foundation Stage Unit. The children will be learning skills to become collaborative learners and using this language in their free learning. We are also developing the skill to be proactive and to reflect on their own and others learning. Can you find our collaborative bees, proactive squirrels and reflective fish in the classroom?
We really value the help and support of parents in the FSU and would love to hear from you if you have a keen interest or talent you could share and teach the children. In previous years we have had parents volunteer to help with cooking, school trips and even bringing in musical instruments to play to the class. We are also extremely grateful for adults who can spare any of their time to listen to the children read and/or to change reading books on a weekly basis.
Please speak to one of the adults in Sparrows for any further information.
Most importantly our doors are always open, whether you need to talk to us, share some of your child's learning with us or just to look around at the amazing displays of the children's learning.
