Welcome to Nursery!

2017-2018

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!

Week Beginning 14th April 2018

 
This week the children will be learning the Nursery Rhyme:
 
Five little speckled frogs
 
Why don't you scroll down to listen to the Nursery Rhyme

 

 

Your child has a copy of the rhyme inside their rhyme book for you to practise together. Remember to decorate the page with them before Friday when they should be returned to school so we can give your child a new rhyme on the Monday.

 

Have Fun!

 

 

This Week's Talking Challenge

w/b 30th April

 

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. 

 

Challenge:

Should we have been given an extra days holiday for the royal wedding?

 

Remember to encourage your child to talk in full sentences. You might need to prompt your child with ideas to help them to think. If your child is struggling, tell them what your answer would be.

Special Delivery

On Friday Morning, a parcel was left in the school office for Nursery. When we opened it the box revealed a letter from Father Christmas along with two Santa Cameras and an Elf.

 

When the magical elf arrived, he had no name. We took a vote and the winning name was Buddy! We hope you enjoy seeing what he gets up to each night after we all leave Nursery...

Autumn 1

 

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.

Look at all the hard work they did to help create this masterpiece!
