Let the little children come to me.

Mark 10 13:14

In Religion, we are learning that we are all part of God's big family! We will be talking about we have gathered together with others and how they felt. We will also be discussing our experiences of visiting Church and listening to God's Word. We have been working hard to make the sign of the cross in Nursery and learn our daily prayers. We will continue to practice these as we are getting better each day!  You can help at home by helping your child practice their prayers daily. 





In Maths, we will be learning to compare quantities using the vocabulary 'more' and ' fewer'. We will will be working hard to understand the relationship between consecutive numbers and find one more than. We will be looking at 3D shapes and matching them to shapes we see in our environment; working hard to learn their names! We will be continuing to count aloud carefully with 1:1 correspondence, develop our awareness of number and using our fingers to help us represent numbers.

 Below are some of the books we will be reading. 




In Phonics, the children will be developing their listening skills. They will be learning to identify rhyming words this half term. We will be playing a range of games to help the children develop these skills.

It is important that the children have the opportunity to share books at home and are read to daily. Below are some ideas to help your child with reading!       


Fine Motor Skills

The children will also be developing fine motor skills with mark-making activities to build muscles and control when using a pencil. We will work on these skills through dough disco, paint brushes, chalk, tweezers, and a variety of pencil control activities. It is really important that your child has the correct pencil grip for writing. Share this short video with your child to practise holding a pencil correctly. Encourage them to use their pinchy parrot fingers!

Healthy Teeth

At Christ the King, we want to promote the importance of good oral hygiene. This  term, we will be having a visit from the Dental Nurse who will teach us how to take care of our teeth. In Nursery, we brush our teeth daily after lunch using the 'Brush Bus' and regularly talk about the importance of taking care of our teeth. 


We would appreciate it if you could share this video with your child and talk about the importance of brushing your teeth in the morning and at night. You can also discuss how different foods and drinks can be good or bad for your teeth. With this in mind, please ensure your child only brings water and healthy snacks to school.
