Our Nursery Classes:

Buttercups, Daisies and Sunflowers

 

 

The Learning Journey topic this half term is: ‘Tell Us a Story’

We will be learning about different traditional tales and stories from other cultures. 

 

INVITATION:

We would love to invite any parents/carers who would like to read a story to the Nursery children.  If you are willing to read or tell a story from your culture or read your favourite childhood story, please come and speak to us and we will be super happy to have you in! Thank you. 

This week (w/b 6/01 and 13/01):

For the next 2 weeks, we will be focusing on a traditional tale of the ‘Three little pigs’.  This week we’ve introduced the book by talking about the title and characters , role playing and retelling the story orally. Our writing focus is on pencil control and following the patterns on Three Little Pigs resources. In maths the children will be learning to count to 3, identifying number 3 as a numeral and finding 3 objects to represent it. The children will be making three houses of different materials for a new display. Next week, the children will be making their own stick puppets to retell the story and act out the tale. We will be practising story sequencing and writing the story down usind pictures and sounds. the children will have an opportunity to make their own little pig’s house experimenting with different materials. In maths, we will be learning about shapes and making shape houses for three little pigs.

 

The whole school value this half-term is Resilience

 

We are focusing on encouraging the children to be resilient and will be unpicking what resilience means and how we can show it, e.g. when travelling across the climbing equipment.

Ideas for helping children at home: 

-Please read aloud and tell stories to children ; it helps them to learn new ideas, concepts and vocabulary.
If English is not the language your family speaks at home, enjoy sharing books written in your home language.

-Please explore stories by talking about the pictures and predicting what might happen next in the story.

-Please  sing songs and nursery rhymes; play musical games together.

-Always encourage your child  to express their thoughts and use new words; have conversations with them at meal times.

-Please encourage your child to draw and make marks as these skills are important for them to develop their writing.

 

 

 

 *********************** REMINDERS & NOTICES  **************************

GATES: When leaving the Nursery please make sure that you close all of the gates behind you. Thank you.

ATTENDANCE: It is important that your child attends school everyday and arrives on time. They will miss important learning time if they are late.

SNACKS: Please do not put any snacks in this bag as the children have fruit provided at snack time.

COATS: Please make sure that your child has a coat at school everyday as we  go outside in all weathers. 

LABELS: Please label all items of your child’s clothing including their coats and shoes.

NUTS: Please make sure that your child does not bring nuts in any form to school. This is very important as we have children in our classes that are allergic to nuts.

Please make sure that your child has an early night as the school day can be very tiring. They should be in bed by 7pm to ensure a good night’s sleep.
