Welcome to Saplings Class!
Come and meet the staff......
Teacher: Mr Cooper
Welcome back to a new half term in Saplings and a special warm welcome to all the brand new children that have just started at our school!
We look forward to spending time with your children and enjoying their learning through play. The children will be taking part in a lot of outdoor learning and we are very excited about our new outdoors learning environment which will be ready very soon! We are now called the Saplings in Nursery to align with the schools tree-themed classes.
In circle time the children have been introduced to our school-wide 'PRIDE' ethos.
Saplings will be taking part in the school-wide behaviour policy. If the children stay on green all week they will receive a green card and may be picked out of the hat to win a prize on Monday achievement assembly!
Our Topic This Half Term is...
Who lives in my house?
This half term we will be looking at the important people in the lives of our children. This includes family and community members who might help them. We are hoping to have some visitors from the community in to talk to the children about their roles. For example, police officers or the fire brigade.
In maths we will be focusing on making sure all children can count to 10 and beyond with increasing accuracy. We will be looking at patterns and the children will be ordering and representing patterns using a variety of objects including 2-d shapes. Our book focus will be on traditional fairy tales.
