ENABLING EVERY DAY COMMUNICATION
As we work to establish and strengthen the children’s understanding of school routines, we will be using particular English words and phrases to support this learning. Words and phrases you might like to also use at home to support this are: “help please”, “open please”, “clean up time”, “wash your hands”, “drink water” and “toilet”. Learning these words will help support language development as well as independence. We will help children who can do this link more of their words together e.g. “”go outside please” by modeling simple sentences that they can repeat and use.
We took our first trip to the Rumble room for P.E this week. It was exciting for the children to investigate a new space- taking their shoes and socks off to run and play with the balls. Please can you start working with your children and helping them be more independent when taking shoes and socks off and putting them on. We use the words: “Have a try” and “Help please”. We will continue to support this independence and use a range of soft play and equipment.
Now the children are becoming more settled we are starting to gather them into a group time with the teachers and their classmates when we can greet each other. At this time the children are listening and enjoying some simple songs. We will continue to introduce a range of songs with the children to help develop musical awareness and also develop vocabulary. We also use these times to share stories and rhymes developing early listening skills with lots of visuals and actions.
