Congratulations to this week’s Taff Fechan VIP! You are always so helpful and such a kind friend! Well done!

Me and my family tree

 

What is special about me? How do we show that we care? In this topic, we’ll learn about love, families and how people are the same and different. We’ll pose for photographs and recognise ourselves, our names and our friends. We’ll look at our reflections and talk about what we can see. In our cosy home corner, we’ll care for dolls and teddies. We’ll enjoy sharing books about love, feelings and families. Outside, we’ll practise following instructions and think about how our brilliant bodies move. Using our mathematical skills, we’ll measure and compare our hands, feet and heights. We’ll count candles and think about why we celebrate birthdays. Getting creative, we’ll make amazing artwork of people we love.  We’ll make delicious foods to share and draw pictures of ourselves with our families.

 

Pupil Voice - At St David's we encourage the children to engage in their own learning. If your child would like to learn about something linked to our topic, or if you have a lovely suggestion for an activity that could support this topic, please email Mrs Underhill-Jones at nursery@stdavidsprm.cardiff.sch.uk.
