Welcome to Term 1 in Luna Class !
In Luna Class we have two teachers - Mrs Solomons who teaches on a Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, and Mrs Lloyd who teaches us on a Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. We are supported by three teaching assistant Mrs Marszal who is in Luna class every day. Mrs Hadley on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Howard on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Our new topic is 'ME!'. The overview of the term is below for you to see what we will be learning about this term. We will post all the children's learning on seesaw. This allows families to gain a window into their child's learning, celebrate their progress and engage in home to school communications.
We use Seesaw to share the learning with parents. This gives them the opportunity to engage in conversations with their child's day about their day.
PE is on .....
We will be sharing your child's learning on the seesaw app. Please make sure you download the QR code so you can see what we have been up to in Luna Class.
This is a great way to encourage your child to talk about their day.....
" Can you tell me what you have done today?" " Who were you play with?" " What were you learning today?"
How do we learn to read and write in Luna Class?
Your child will be exposed to a language rich environment. They will see print everywhere! We will be singing and reading stories and developing their vocabulary and language in their play.
In all areas of the classroom your child will have the opportunity to develop their writing. At first this maybe through fine motor skills; for example threading, play dough and water play. Your child needs to build up the muscles in their hands in order to hold a pencil and form letters correctly. They will always have the opportunity to 'mark make' having a variety of equipment available to have a go at writing in and outside the classroom.
We also teach daily phonics using Sounds Write. You will hear your child say "We are learning our sounds in sounds write". This is a phonics programme which allows children to hear the sounds in words in order to read and write. Please see the leaflet below which explains how sounds write in taught in EYFS.
