Woodham Tots Updates
Martin Curtis (m.curtis) on: Woodham Tots Updates
We have been so busy since our last update. We have been immersing ourselves in the changing of the seasons, and this has given us so many opportunities to provide activities that are fun and educational for the children. The natural world is often known as the Third Teacher in Early Years Curricula here and across the world, and we are so lucky to have constant access to the outdoors. You can keep supporting this by wrapping your children up and going outdoors with them. You can extend their language by encouraging them to listen to sounds they can hear when you are out and about, as well as help build their confidence by letting them jump in puddles and get muddy.
The children have been amazing us with their love of stories, and have been joining in with well loved books such as Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo and Stick Man. Thank you so much for fostering this introduction to reading, a skill that will allow them to access a lifelong love of learning. We have just introduced the children to a program call Early Talk Boost, and this is full of fun activities designed to develop their listening and attention skills, and therefore help them develop their language. This will support their emerging reading skills, and also supports our phonics work we do at pre-school. Again, you can help support this by encouraging your child to look at you when you talk to them, and engaging in conversation with them. The more language they here, the more they will learn. Keep sharing books with them, and help them bring the stories to life. It is so important and you are all doing a wonderful job. Thanks again.
