Welcome to Ducklings! Please see our curriculum letter below.

This half term we have been settling into our wonderful new school. We have been busy making friends, learning lots of new things and developing our gross and fine motor skills. 


If you want to support your child at home please:

  • Read daily to your child, especially at bedtime.
  • Encourage your child to use child friendly scissors to cut shapes out of paper.
  • Support your child to hold their pencil with a tripod grip, if you're unsure of what this is/looks like, please speak to Miss Tharme. The children have learnt to say and do; stretch, stick, grip. They will be able to show you this.
  • Support your child to develop their pencil control by tracing shapes, lines and letters on paper. 
  • Talk lots and lots with your child about everything! Language and vocabulary are so important.
