Please continue to help your child be self-sufficient in managing everyday tasks such as:
Zipping up their coat.
Blowing their nose (and disposing of the tissue in a bin!).
Going to the toilet by themselves and washing their hands. (Often boys have not or have rarely encountered a urinal.)
Dressing and changing for P.E. -practise the buttons and also turning clothes the right was round when they are inside out!
Being responsible for putting books, toys and equipment away after them.
All of these skills take time to develop and every practice will help.
We will always be there to help and encourage, but a happy school life is, and always will be, dependent upon a partnership between home and school.
Foundation Stage (Reception Class)
The foundation stage curriculum is organised into six areas of learning:
Personal, social and emotional development
Communication, language and Literacy
Problem solving, reasoning and Numeracy
Knowledge and understanding of the world
Early years experience builds on what children already know and can do. We will work to ensure that all children feel included, secure and valued in an atmosphere of mutual respect, within which children can have security and confidence.
Learning for young children is a rewarding and enjoyable experience in which they explore, investigate, discover, practise, rehearse, repeat, revise and consolidate their developing knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes. During the foundation stage, many of these aspects of learning are brought together effectively through playing and talking.
