Spring Term

Welcome back, we hope you had a great half term with family and friends.

 

Around the World

This term we are finding out about different countries; looking at the climate, learning about different food and famous buildings they have. We will have the opportunity to learn about different cultures, traditions and customs for each country.

 

We are looking forward to visiting as many countries as possible; we will be making passports and allowing the children to experience visiting an airport and trying as many different foods from the countries that we visit.

 

If anyone has any visited any countries that would like to share their experience with the children that would be fantastic; just let us know.

READING

Your child will be given a reading book and a record to bring home. He/she will get the opportunity to change their reading book twice a week on a Monday and Thursday. Please listen to your child read as often as possible and record any comments in the reading record. We really encourage reading at home and reading for 10 minutes daily is the fastest way to help your child progress. Once they’ve read 10 times they will be able to choose a prize.

 

SHOW AND TELL

Every Friday the children will have the opportunity to bring something relating to the topic ‘Around the World.’ They are encouraged to share and talk about their object to the class. This helps them to strengthen children’s communication skills and help them to feel comfortable talking to their peers. They will begin to use descriptive words, full sentence, thoughts and emotions.

Thank you for taking the time to visit Ireland’s page, it is with great pleasure that we welcome your children into the 4+.

The children will be learning through play in each of the different areas, it nurtures their development, encourages communication skills and encourages them to solve simple problems. Children can be spontaneous and encourage them to be independent learners. The areas that we focus on are Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Physical Development, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World.
