Prime areas:

Communication and Language (CL)

Personal Social Emotional Development (PSED)

Specific areas:

Maths (M)

Literacy (L)

Understanding the world (UTW)

Expressive arts and design (EAD)

During their music lessons with Mrs Gregory-White, the children have been learning songs to go with the 'Jack and the Beanstalk' story. The link below will take you to these songs and stories, as well as others for the children to explore.
Herts for Learning have written a blog post on different web cams that the children can access to see animals and different parts of the world. These could be good for helping your child develop in their communication and language as they discuss what is happening with you or someone else in the household.
