Get In Touch


For our topic learning for today and tomorrow I would to focus on the Personal, Social and Emotional prime area of the Development Matters curriculum.


It is important in Reception for children to talk about how they and others show feelings. Children should be confident to try some new activities and can say why they like some activities more than others.


Below is a link to a story called 'Cody the Cautious Caterpillar' which discusses confidence and how it's ok to be unsure.


Please read the story together and talk about what happens and how the characters are feeling and why. I have included some 'talk card' images below for some ideas about what to discuss.
