We have made a super start to Autumn 2 half term in Robin Class. This half term we are thinking about 'Good To be Me', as well as, Nursery Rhymes, rhyming stories and rhyming words. The children will be thinking about different celebrations and why they are all different but all special. We will be thinking about our senses and will have activities such as tasting different foods and smelly pots. There will be a focus on language and communication skills and social skills. The social skills will include thinking about sharing our toys, taking care of our classroom and toys, having kind hands and being helpful.
There will also be a focus on 'handgym' activities which are designed to help the children's hands be ready to hold writing tools. These activities will include, playdough, threading, putting pegs on a plate, using tweezers to put small objects in pots and winding up toys. We will follow the WriteDance scheme, where children have the opportunity to move to music and then draw patterns while listening to the same piece of music.
Each week there will be a focus on a number and also a colour of the week. We will be singing lots of counting and action songs to introduce the children to numbers and counting.
