This half term we will be settling into Pre-school, getting to know our new teachers and making new friends. We will be focusing on becoming familiar with the rules of the classroom as well as practicing new skills through both indoor and outdoor activities.
Our theme this half term is 'All About Me'. We will be looking at the ways in which we are similar and what makes us different to one another. We will be celebrating how each of us is unique and talking about our likes and dislikes. In creative activities we will be painting our own portraits and exploring using and mixing colours. We will also be using natural materials such as leaves and sticks to create autumnal collages.
In maths we will be learning to count from 0-10 through various songs and games and will also be looking at shapes in our surrounding environment. In mark making activities we will be practising recognising our names and will be using different methods such as large chalks, paint brushes, tweezers and scoops to get our fingers and arms moving. In our Small World and Role Play areas we will be encouraged to talk and listen to one another when thinking about our own lives as well as the lives of those around us.
