Our Topic this week will be

World Religion Week

Week beginning: 13th January 2020

Here are some areas we shall be looking at in class this week that you could try at home...

Literacy

In literacy we have begun to look at the initial letter sounds. We have been looking at the letter M. This is pronounced as mmmmmm… (think of something delicious) and not muh so pleased correct your child if they say this incorrectly. We have been doing M Walks around the classroom identifying things that begin with that sound, it would be great if you could do the same at home, asking your children to spot the items that begin with that letter.

As we move further into phonics with your child we will be sending home sound activity sheets. I would encourage you to spend some time looking at them with your child. Please let me know if you feel a Parent’s Early Phonics session would be beneficial to you.

Maths

In maths we will be looking at when things happen. This is a very early introduction into time. We will be using the language of “before” and “after” and sequencing when things happen in the day.

At home you could keep a time diary or create a visual timetable of your morning before school. What order do the children do the things they do before they come to school?

Expressive Arts and Design

Understanding the World

This week we will be looking at different religions from around the world. We will be focussing on foods and celebrations. The religions we will be looking at are: Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. If you follow any of these faiths at home and have any photos or pictures of a celebration that takes part in your religion then we would love to see them! Likewise, we would be extremely grateful if you were able to provide us with any traditional celebratory foods from your religion. The children always love trying new things! Should you wish to provide us with any tasters then the religions will be looked at on these days:

Monday – Buddhism, Tuesday – Christianity, Wednesday – Judaism, Thursday – Islam, Friday – Hinduism.
