Play is a vital part of Dosbarth Hadau
It helps to improve language, social skills, physical development, creativity and problem solving abilities.
We will have opportunities in the classroom to develop our fine and gross motor skills, problem solving and reasoning, pattern, shape, imagination and language.
We will have opportunities to sing and learn a variety of songs and rhymes to develop imagination, listening and communication skills, social cues, reading, writing and confidence.
Playing at home
Children love to watch and learn from their parent/ guardian/ older sibling so letting them join in with some daily activities like cleaning and cooking can be hugely beneficial to their development.
Please find a link here from the NHS explaining the importance of play for young children: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/pregnancy-and-baby/why-play-is-important/
It would be wonderful if you could read a bedtime story to or with your child every night. Listening to stories read aloud by an adult helps to develop vocabulary for speaking and writing. You could even create an imaginative story together, using pictures or experiences to help you and your child along the way.
Reading record books have many words which are useful for the children to practise, here you will also find sounds we regularly look at together.
