Welcome to Early Years at St Thomas Cantilupe
Our topic for this term is ‘Marvellous Me’. This will help us to find out more about the children and helps us to celebrate our differences. We will also be looking at the story ‘Room on the Broom’ as our Talk for Writing text. We will be making our own magic wands, making magic potions and creating our own brooms for the characters to fly on. The children will learn a simplified version of the story that they will soon be able to retell all on their own. During this first term, we want the children to explore their new environment and learn new skills that they can then develop over the year. We will be inviting different people in to work with the children in small groups. First up, we have linked with a local woodwork teacher who has very kindly offered to show the children how to use the woodwork bench that he made for us and to teach the children how to use the tools correctly. We are hoping that this will be a magical term for all of the children!
In the event of being required to self-isolate, Class R pupils, should follow the remote learning timetable for the relevant week. Teachers will use Seesaw to communicate with your child about their learning and suggest suitable tasks, activities and links to supplement those outlined in the remote learning plan. Most tasks can be completed online or through the use of pencil and paper. For tasks where you may require a printer, but are unable to access one or you have problems getting online, feel free to ask us for further support by contacting the office. Remember to make sure you include time for looking after your health and wellbeing. Stay safe.
