Hello everybody,

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.  We spent the last week thinking about trains.  The children enjoyed making train tickets and using them to go on an adventure.

Next week we will be continuing our transport topic by thinking about cars.

I have been asked this week about what you should be currently expecting from you children.  At ISBreda we follow the UK curriculum for Early Years Education.  A UK charity called 4 Children (supported by the UK Department for Education) produced a booklet for parents to explain the curriculum titled What To Expect When.  It breaks down the Early Years curriculum and explains how they believe children should be developing linked to their age.  There is a link to this document here: http://www.foundationyears.org.uk/2015/03/what-to-expect-when-a-parents-guide/  I hope this will be useful for you.

Kind regards,

Miss Johnson.

Hello everybody,

Last week was a fantastic week especially as we all flew to Milan!  As part of our IPC topic about transport we spent the week focusing on aeroplanes.  We made an airport and an aeroplane which we used for our make-believe journey to Milan.  We took our boarding passes and passports and jetted off on an adventure.

This week we will be focusing on trains and train journeys.  Please talk to your child about trains.  Have they ever been on a train?  If they have not then perhaps you could go on a train journey together.

Wishing you all a great week.

Kind regards,

Miss Johnson.

Hello everybody and a Happy New Year to you all!

I hope to everybody had a fantastic and relaxing Christmas break.  It has been great to get back to school and we have all enjoyed the first week back.

We have a new IPC topic starting next week – Transport.  We will be starting the topic by thinking about aeroplanes.  We have turned our role-play area into an airport and will be linking aeroplanes to our literacy lessons too.

Please talk to your child about transport and particularly aeroplanes.  Have they ever been on an aeroplane?  Where did they go?  How long did it take?  What happened when they were on the plane?  Did they eat?  Or sleep?

I hope that everybody has a lovely weekend.  Enjoy playing in the snow whilst it lasts.

Kind regards,

Miss Johnson.
