Nursery News Term 6

 Welcome to our final newsletter of this academic year. We feel the children have really engaged well with the topics this year. They have especially enjoyed exploring the Imagination Library books.

What are we learning this half term?

 

To support our new topic Fantastic Beasts we are exploring the following Imagination Library books: Just Imagine, Slug needs a Hug, Shark in the Park, and Cockatoos. We will be looking at different animals with fur, scales and feathers, and talking about what animals would or would not make good pets.
We will be making telescopes and identifying the initial sound of objects we find.

 

Maths

 

We will be exploring the ‘Numicon’ shapes recognising their number value by sight as this will support the children when they enter Reception. We will also begin to solve practical number problems involving finding the total number of items in two groups (an introduction to addition).
Communication Language and Listening (CLL)
We will continue to explore stories to develop the children’s ability to remember, recall and think of different story endings. We will also continue with activities to support the children’s ability to hear sounds in words as well as blending simple words.
Topic: Fantastic Beasts
We are looking forward to Animal Encounter’s visit on Wednesday 26th June where the children will be able to observe, hold and ask questions about animals from around the world such as: giant snails, spiders and lizards.

What you can do at home to help your child
Practise estimating (having a good guess) with small objects at home then check by counting them. Play games such as I spy where your child will be listening for initial sounds in words. Continue to use the SFA letter strip to support your child to recognise and say the letter sounds.

 

Early Essence

 

Thank you very much if you have accessed the system to upload pictures or videos of what your child/children are learning at home. If you need support to log on to the system please ask a member of the team.

 

PE

 

This will continue to be every Wednesday, please ensure your child comes to school with normal uniform on top and either shorts, jogging bottoms or leggings. We will be practising throwing and running skills outside, (weather permitting) therefore the children will need to come to school wearing their trainers on a Wednesday. When the weather is hot please apply sun-cream to your child before coming to Nursery.
