Drop off – We would greatly appreciate your support with dropping your child off to school between 8.30-8.45am at the latest; this way we can start our morning circle by 9am.

Don’t forget our Primary Academic Review Evenings taking place on Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th January from 5pm to 8pm. Information on how to make an appointment was sent out earlier this week. Please let your child’s class teacher know if you did not receive this.

January and February are usually the coldest months of the year in Shanghai. Please make sure your child comes to school every day wearing the correct Early Years winter uniform, and with appropriate layers to equip them for the playground.

Overview of next week’s learning

During this week the children will continue to explore the idea of ‘opposites’ through stories, songs, puzzles, discussions and practical activities. In these activities the children will deepen their understanding of opposites by allowing them to explore concepts such as light and dark, empty and full, big and small and heavy and light.

As part of our early phonics progression, the children will explore alliteration through creating their own aliens and making up alliterative names for them. This will lead into sharing the story Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman.

During focused maths sessions the children will explore numbers by comparing two sets of objects through counting and communicate whether one set has more or less objects than the other. Children will also be challenged to begin representing the numbers of each set through mark-making.
