Message from our Head of Early Years

This week has been full of excitement. 

The children enjoyed performing for you on Thursday and thoroughly enjoyed participating in Sports Day on Monday and Friday. They showed great resilience when trying new activities. Thank you to all those who were able to attend Parents’ Day and Sports Day. It was great to see so many of you. We appreciate your continued support.

Giving the children opportunities to perform to an audience helps to develop the children’s communication and language skills and it builds their confidence. Learning short poems helps build the children’s Literacy skills. Children can explore new words and sounds with poems and rhymes. Poems have a natural rhythm, which helps children work one syllable at a time to pick up and sound out new words. The rhythm of language is also linked closely to song and dance, as the children learn to copy repeated rhythms. With our Parents' Day performance, a success on Thursday, we are building on the skills already gained as we begin rehearsals for our Summer Concert Extravaganza.

I hope you have a relaxing weekend, and we look forward to seeing you at the Summer Concert.
