 Dear Parents and Care-givers,

Happy New Year!

I am very glad to welcome 6 new children into EY this term, Charme, Num, Lukas, Jivin, Oscar and Seiya. They are settling in very well and making new friends. They are all so lovely and adorable!

 The topic for the Term 2 Part 1 is ‘Storytelling’. It is a five week topic and we will be reading  traditional fairy tales like The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood to name but a few. If you have any stories at home like this please encourage your child to bring them in to school to share with their friends. Story telling can make an important contribution to the development of emotional literacy, social and emotional aspects of learning. It is also a unique way for children to develop an understanding, respect and appreciation for other cultures. We will be celebrating Chinese New year on Friday, January 24 at 10:40.

To give all children the best opportunities for PSED in Early years, we will support the children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others, to make them confident, to establish good relationships with other children and adults. We plan learning activities for the children to develop their independence and 21st Century skills.


                                
To develop their physical skills we provide a range of mark making tools such as chalks, paint and stampers. The children will develop their fine motor skills through threading activities, play dough, using scissors and joining construction materials together.


                                                                                                                 
For gross motor development, we will continue our outdoor adventures, walking in the school garden and playgrounds. We will develop football skills, throwing, kicking, catching, dancing and yoga, using wheeled toys, swings and climbing.



                     
Here is a play dough recipe if you would like to make it at home with your child. Play dough offers many creative possibilities and can be lots of fun for children and adults alike! You can sit down and show different ways to roll, squash and mould the play dough. It is a good way to also develop their language by talking about what they are making, how it feels and about the different shapes and colours it can be.




You need:
·         2 cups plain flour (all purpose)
·         2 tablespoons vegetable oil
·         1/2 cup salt
·         2 tablespoons cream of tartar
·         Up to 1.5 cups boiling water (adding in increments until it feels just right)
·         food colouring (optional)
·         Few drops glycerine (optional- adds more shine!
Method:
  • Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bowl
  • Add food colouring to the boiling water then into the dry ingredients (colour optional)
  • Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough
  • Add the glycerine (optional) - this makes it shiny
  • Allow it to cool down then take it out of the bowl and knead it vigorously for a couple of minutes until all of the stickiness has gone. * This is the most important part of the process, so keep at it until it’s the perfect consistency!*
  • (If it remains a little sticky then add a touch more flour until just right.
               
We look forward to having lots of fun learning with your child this term.
