Overview of next week’s learning
As the children are slowly starting to settle we will continue to support them with our daily routines; we will especially be encouraging children to help tidy up after our indoor and outdoor sessions. You can further support this at home by encouraging your child to tidy away their toys when they have finished playing. Staying in theme with the parts of our body our focus story will be ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’. We will also continue mark making using a variety of materials such as stamps, bottle caps and tubes. On Wednesday our activities will be related to the Chinese New Year festivities.
