Term 1:

This term we will be sharing lots of songs and games in circle times helping us to learn new names and faces.
We will be learning to tell the story of the Little Red Hen and practice listening carefully to sounds around us.
We will be counting backwards and forwards to 10 and 20 in games/ songs and begin to explore the mathematical resource Numicon.

Our daily Physical and PSED development programme called ‘Sherbourne’ will take place each day in the school hall. It is an excellent session that supports children’s physical strength,co-ordination and balance as well as friendships and listening skills.

Here is some other key information for this term:
