Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
Children will start to build strategies to help them take on individual and group challenges. They will learn howto become more resilient and problem solve to keep moving forward. They will also learn about building relationships within groups as well as more special relationships that occur within families.
In PE, the children will be building on fundamental movement skills. They will be encouraged to consider how they move and balance to be able to travel, stop and change direction quickly, accurately and safely. This will help them to develop the necessary skills needed for team games and sports in later life. In the classroom, the children are also provided with a number of opportunities to improve fine motor skills through threading, play-doh, scissor work and pencil control.
Communication and Language
Children will continue to participate in a range of listening games. They will be encouraged to join in with
rhymes and retelling longer familiar stories. They will also begin to think more about using specific language to do with position and direction. Phonics continues to move on at pace and language and annunciation is developed in these sessions. Children are constantly engaged in purposeful and meaningful conversations with adults and peers and set expectations for socialising are further cemented.
