What to expect in Nursery
Nursery Rhyme Books - Rhyme is an important part to your child's development. Every Monday your child will bring home their Nursery Rhyme Book with a new rhyme inside for them to learn. We ask that you help your child to learn these each week by listening to the attached clip uploaded each week, letting them have lots of practice and even decorating each page with them.
Good News Book - We want to know what your child has been getting up to outside of school and give them the opportunity to talk about this with the rest of their friends in their class. Pictures from a family day out, what they have got up to at the weekend or after school, do they attend an out of school club? The possibilities are endless!
We will update our page regularly with information and photographs so you can see what the children are learning and how much fun we are having in Nursery!
We are looking forward to working with you and your child this year!
Our topic for this half term is called: Friends and Family
The children will be learning about themselves, their new friends and all the exciting things they can do at school.
In this topic we will be encouraging the children to talk about their families - it would be helpful if you could talk about this with your child and send in a picture so we can show the rest of the class and do some paintings for our art gallery.
Week Beginning 09th October 2017
w/b 09th October
Welcome to your new school year. We hope you start to enjoy coming to school to learn about new and exciting things.
Each week there will be a talking challenge for your to talk to your child about at home.
Ask your child about building the bug hotel. What materials did they use to build it, how did they build it, what kind of insects may they find living inside?
Remember to encourage talk in full sentences. You might need to prompt your child with ideas to help them to think e.g. Are there any spiders living in the bug hotel yet?
September is the month of creation!
To celebrate this, Nursery and Reception created a bug hotel using natural resources that they collected at home.
Look at all the hard work they did to help create this masterpiece!
This week in Nursery, we have been learning all about the Hindu festival of Diwali and how they celebrate it. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita, decorated Rangoli Patterns and even made our very own Diva Lamps.
The children take part in a PE session each Friday with Mr Cowling. They learn key skills such as:
We also have lots fun in our key worker groups.
All children now have their own purple mash log in that is stuck to the inside of the cover of their nursery rhyme book. You can now log into the purple mash site with your child, there are lots of interesting games and activities to do on the tablet / Ipad / computer.
