This term, the children are learning and exploring through our new topic Fantastic Fairy Tales. Each week we have been focusing on a different fairy tale story which has inspired the activities for the learning areas and adult focus activities in our classrooms. We have already looked at Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which the children really enjoyed. Mrs McDermott and Mrs Sharp’s children have also been working hard to prepare their Class Assembly which is on Friday 14th February all about Valentines.
Before the holidays, we will be revisiting our on-going topic about People around the World to find out about China and Chinese New Year. The children will be making a Class Holiday Brochure about China using the information they find out. They will also take part in various Chinese craft activities and will try tasting some delicious Chinese Food. We will also continue to learn about more fairy tales including The Gingerbread Man, The Three Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk.
Finally, this term we have introduced our new Reading Ladder scheme where the children are rewarded for reading 5 or more times a week at home. So far we are very impressed with the results. Keep it up! We encourage you to read with your child as often as possible. As always, parental support at home is invaluable.
