Welcome to Tiger Cubs!!!
Your teachers will be Mrs Burgin, Miss Highton and Mrs Hitchens
This September our first topic is called…
‘Why do you love me so much ?’
Guess how much I love you… What is special about me? How do we show that we care? In this project, we’ll learn about love, families and how people are the same and different.
First, we’ll talk to a parent with a baby and ask lots of questions. We’ll pose for photographs and recognise ourselves, our names and our friends from a photograph display. Mirror, mirror on the wall… We’ll look at our reflections and talk about what we can see. In our cosy home corner, we’ll care for dolls and teddies. We’ll enjoy sharing books about love, feelings and families. Outside, we’ll practise following instructions and think about how our brilliant bodies move. Using our mathematical skills, we’ll measure and compare our hands, feet and heights. We’ll count candles and think about why we celebrate birthdays. Getting creative, we’ll make amazing artwork of people we love.
As Foundation Stage 1 we will be singing lots of songs daily, especially nursery rhymes as this helps with our speech, sounds and awareness of rhyme and rhythm.
We will explore early counting with simple number songs and games.
We will enjoy all kinds of stories linked to our topic or simply ones that we like.
But most of all we will learn to play and learn together, build good friendships, begin to understand what makes us and others happy or sad, and work together to create a safe, happy and nurturing environment for us all.
Don’t forget to look out for photos we put on your child’s Dojo and please share experiences from home on there too. We love learning about the things the children enjoy out of school.
