Nursery News Term 5


We are very excited to welcome our new children and are looking forward to an exciting summer term.


Visitors from our community


We would like to say a big thank you to all the people from the local community who came to visit us in Nursery. We enjoyed learning about people in the community and it gave the children the opportunity to ask questions and develop their knowledge and understanding of the different jobs people do.


What are we learning this half term?


We will be exploring the following books: The Hungry Caterpillar, The Creepy Crawly Caterpillar, Chapatti Moon and Stanley’s Café. These books are from Dolly Parton Imagination Library so you might have these at home already. We will be finding out about healthy and not so healthy food and developing our knowledge of food from different countries and cultures such as aubergines and chapattis. We will also be learning about the life cycles of caterpillars and tadpoles and planting some flower seeds and vegetables in our Nursery garden in the hope that it will attract insects that we can draw and paint.




We will be copying and creating patterns that we see in the environment for example as seen on butterflies and stripy caterpillars. We will be counting the spots and legs on different insects.


Communication Language and Listening (CLL)


We are continuing to learn our letter sounds. Thank you for supporting your child at home. If you need another letter strip please ask a member of the team. The children have really enjoyed the activities supporting them to identify initial sounds in words and have made good progress.


What you can do at home to help your child:


Please talk about what foods are healthy or less healthy and the benefits of brushing their teeth. Continue to look for different shapes in the environment. Talk about similarities and differences between animals and insects such as: lions, tigers, spiders and butterflies. Continue to practise your child’s targets little and often.


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.




Will continue to be every Wednesday. This term we will continue to play games to develop turn taking and team building skills. We will also be focusing on hand eye coordination using small equipment such as balls and beanbags, by playing games involving throwing and catching and balancing using bats. Please ensure all your child’s uniform is labelled with their name


Date for your diary


Wednesday 22nd May is class photograph day. Please ensure your child is wearing the correct uniform.


Snack: Just a reminder, snack is 50p a week, which we will collect per half term. The total for this half term is £2.00. £1.50 for children who started the week commencing 6.5.19.
