Me and My Community
In the Me and My Community project, your child will learn about the school community and building friendships. They will explore the school grounds and find out about all the people in school who are there to help them. They will explore how they are special and unique and how everyone’s family is different. They will take part in practical activities to support them to build new friendships and explore what makes a good friend. They will also find out about people in the community who help us, including doctors, nurses, and the emergency services.

Ideas to help at home
Reading with your child at least 5 times a week (please write daily in the yellow reading record book). Please read books you have at home or from the library until children begin bringing reading books home. We will visit the school library and bring a book home on Thursday. Please return library books every Thursday ready to take a new one home.
Please provide your child with only essential resources e.g. reading book (we will send home reading books or reading resources, within a couple of weeks of your child starting school) and named lunch box (if not having hot meals).
Please provide your child with a named, refillable water bottle that is taken home each day for washing.
PE will take place on Tuesday – please send your child to school wearing their PE kit and sport shoes, which they will continue to wear throughout the day.
