The children will continue working on a range of basic skills over this half term. In particular we would like to support the children in developing their scissor skills. It would be great if you could help them at home too. Ideally they need a pair of children's scissors and then they can snip various paper, card,catalogues and so on. We will also continue to work on their number recognition, drawing skills, name writing and holding their pencil correctly. So anything you can do at home to support their learning would be great!

Thank you for your continued support,

Welcome to F1

 We hope you all enjoyed the half term break!


This half term our topic will be ‘Patterns’ (see topic web). Our two Super Stories which will link to this theme are ‘My Mum and Dad make Me Laugh’ and ‘Brown Bear Brown Bear’. To support your child with this topic you may like to share other stories which have a pattern theme. For example 'Elmer' stories or stories with a pattern or repeating sequence eg 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt', 'Polar Bear Polar Bear', and 'The Shopping Basket.'  You might also want to use the internet to look at patterns in nature! Have a look at our topic web for suggestions of different ways to make and extend repeating patterns. There are a few examples below.
