Curriculum Newsletter Spring Term ~ 2020

Asslamulakum (wtb) Parents!  Usthada Khan and Usthada Meah welcome back to another amazing term here at Iqra.

This half term the topic for EYFS will be ‘Space’. The topic will cover all seven areas of learning for the Early Years curriculum. The seven areas of learning are as follows: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Reading and Writing, Expressive Arts and Design, Mathematics and Understanding of the World.

Over the next half term we will be reading a range of story books which relate to our Space topic, these books include, Man on the Moon, Whatever Next, Beegu and many more. 

Children will have an array of opportunities to engage in various activities, for example, junk modelling to make different types of rocket/spaceship models, carrying out investigations about space and planets.  Learning planets names and some facts. Children will be discussing the best way to travel into Space. 

Tarbiya

This term children will learn Surah Iklas and dua for parents with meaning and will practice saying Salaams and JazakAllah to each other. Please encourage your child at home to practice these manners. 

Book Changing/homework

please note books will be changed every Friday. Parents are expected to sign the reading record to confirm their child has read the book with an adult, and comment to let the staff know how their child found the book would also be appreciated. Please encourage your child to keep the book neat and tidy.

Homework will go out every Friday and due by every Wednesday.

How You Can Help

  • Bring in any stories or books about our topic that we can share in class.
    Go to the library with your child and read stories of ‘space’ together.
  • Teach your children some name of the planets.
