Topic

Our Topic this half term is 'Farm'. We will be sharing lots of Farm stories in class and talking about the different characters in our favourite books. We will also be working hard on our comprehension and using lots of language to describe the characters, setting and main events.  Please have a look below at our Knowledge Organiser and discuss the different sections with your child. 

 

Healthy Teeth

At Christ the King, we are promoting the importance of good oral hygiene. Please share this video with your child and talk about the importance of brushing their teeth in the morning and at night. Could you also talk to your child about foods and drink what is good and bad for your teeth. With this in mind, please ensure your child only brings water to school and healthy snacks and water in their packed lunch.

At school we will be introducing the 'Brush Bus' to the children this term. Each child in nursery will receive their own toothbrush and will have the opportunity to brush their teeth every day after lunch.

 

Here is a presentation of 'Top Toothbrushing Tips'.

 

 

   Religion

This term, our Religion topic is 'Our local church community'. We will be exploring about our local church Christ the King.   We will be looking at what makes our church special and the community involved.  We will look at the role of Fr Derek our parish priest and look at how we celebrate as a church community.  We will also explore the important features of Christ the King Church.
