We have had a great first day back at Stepping Stones today. It’s been very chilled out, allowing the children to settle back in smoothly. The atmosphere has been really lovely.

At Stepping Stones we follow a termly theme, very similar to in reception. What we do is break the terms down into weekly topics which are related to the main theme. Our planning aims to cover all of the areas of development for children aged between 2 and 5 years. We would like to start sharing our weekly planning with you every week so that you have a better idea of what we are getting up to with your child/children. We aim to post a picture of our planning sheet every Monday so that you can then discuss things at home, if you so wish.

Firstly, we would just like to share with you how the weeks will be broken down between now and Christmas. As you can see we have quite a lot to look forward to! šŸ™‚

You can see our planning in much more detail on the notice board in the Stepping Stones classroom. Please feel free to take a look at any time.

Also, please be aware that we are observing the children in their play all of the time and as well as this planning we also jump at every opportunity to follow their own ideas and interests. We strive to provide a really good balance between adult and child led play. šŸ™‚

If you have any questions or ideas about the way we plan our days at SS, please feel free to come and speak to one of us.
