This term our topic is:
Why Do You Love Me So Much?
This half term our topic is titled ‘Why do you love me so much?' We will be reading lots of different story books about friends, families and ourselves. We will be learning about the things that are special about each of us and how we show others that we care for them. We will look at celebrations such as Harvest Festival, birthdays and weddings and talk about how these are times to show others we love them. For our memorable experience, we will be visited by a parent with their baby, so that the children can talk about what babies need and why they are so special in people’s families. Children will also bring home a packet.This is a place for you to put things that are important and special to your child, and can include drawings, photos or items. We will look at these with your child.
We will continue to update parents and carers on Class Dojo, about what is happening and when. Please also keep and eye out for emails and messages from the school office.
We hope you enjoy your time in our class. Please see the Newsletter at the bottom of the page for more information about our class.

This half term our PE will be done within the school day, through the Daily Mile, and outdoor play.
Every Thursday your child will choose a new library book from the school library. This is for both you and your child to enjoy and read together. Please remember to return the reading diary and book every week so they can choose a new book to ensure they are developing a positive attitude to a wide range of texts.
We would love to hear about any recent achievements, news, or exciting activities that you and your child have been up to at home. In the cloakroom area is our WOW board. Please let us know any exciting things you would like to share about your child. You can also pop to the office and fill in a slip. This will be shared in achievement assembly on a Friday.
We are continuing to sing nursery rhymes each week, and would encourage you to sing these at home with your child. We have a small display and table close to the carpet area, that shows our current rhyme. The following website has animations, words and the tracks for lots of great nursery rhymes. http://www.bbc.co.uk/learning/schoolradio
Alongside the singing of Nursery Rhymes and sharing different books, we would encourage you to talk to your child regularly about the things you are doing and what they have done at school. This will really support their development with speaking and listening and increase their vocabulary. If you need any ideas, please have a look at our speech and language display and ask if you need any support. We do also have leaflets and support information to help with potty training and moving on from using a bottle and dummy.
We are here to help!
This half term, we will be focusing on Responsibility as part of our Brinsley Values. The children will be talking about what these words mean.
We use Class Dojo to keep parents and carers informed about the things that we are doing and events that are coming up. If you haven't registered let us know and we can give you the sign up information.
We have sent home a list of '100 things to do before you're 6!' These are fun things that give you some great ways to get everyone in the family involved in having some fun. We would love to see your selfies of you and your child enjoying the some of these activities. Please see the file below for the list. How many can you do? (This has been taken from Shonette Bason-Wood at Spread the Happiness.)
These are some photographs of our classroom and outdoor area.
