‘Tis the season…..

Welcome back to the second of our class updates of the year. Class Oaks have had an exciting second part of the Autumn term with two class outings. They have visited the local allotments; looking at the autumn vegetables and also Malton Library, where children had an opportunity to choose a book and listen to story time. More recently the class have had great fun reading the Everywhere Bear (by Julia Donaldson). We have our own ‘Everywhere bear’ which the children have all had a turn to take on an adventure at home.

This half term’s overarching theme continues to be the season of Autumn and the looking at the cultural festivals and celebrations within this period.

Class Oaks Aut 2 Curriculum

Children are doing really well with their daily routines. They can all now change their shoes, zip up their coat and are attempting to use their knife and fork independently. We are still working on undoing and fastening our shirt buttons.

How can I help my child at home?

  • Please encourage your child to be independent with dressing at home. This will also help develop the fine motor control required for writing.
  • Continue to practise the sound cards that are being sent home in addition to reading to your child.
  • Send in their reading book and record every day and try to write in the record once a week.
  • Encourage your child to hold and use their knife and fork correctly
  • Practise cutting skills with scissors
  • Ensure that they have a full PE kit in school (black tracksuit top and jogging bottoms, white polo shirt, trainers and white sports socks)
  • If possible send in wellington boots on wet days.

Please feel free to talk to me at drop-off or pick-up time if you have any questions or concerns or if you prefer to contact me by email on simone.miller@hcat.org.uk

Thank you for your continued support
