Current Nursery Pupils

 

Welcome to the new children and parents. We are very pleased with how well the children have settled in

 Water Bottles

Nursery Bears

As we are already half way through our school year there will not be enough time to ensure all children will be able to take Nursery Bear home.
Therefore, children who started in January 2020 will wait until next academic year to have the chance to take Nursery Bear home.

What are we learning?

Please continue to look at the posters on the ‘Parents Notice Board’ to see what the children will be learning each week. This can provide ideas of what you can do at home.

Topic: Traditional Tales

We will be exploring the following books: The Gingerbread Man, Chapatti Moon and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. By listening to these stories often, the children will be developing their ability to recall the main events and characters and to also think of a different ending to the stories. We will also encourage the children to play using the small world toy characters and to role play with the dress up clothes.

Maths

We will be playing games every day to support the children’s ability to recognise numbers 0-10. We will be exploring the Numicon shapes and recognising their number value by sight as this will support the children when they enter Reception.

Communication Language and Listening (CLL)

We will be exploring rhyming words and playing games to develop the children’s ability to hear initial sounds in words. During rhyme time we will also introduce the letter sounds. Next week we will be sending a letter home explaining this in more detail.

New Arrivals on Monday 23rd March 2020

We are all very excited as this is when the Happy Chick Company will be delivering the eggs and equipment so we can observe the chicks hatching. Look out for the text with the live link so you can observe the chicks hatching at home.

PE

Everyone will be accessing P.E. from Wednesday 11th March. This half term the children will be moving in different ways such as: skipping, jumping, slithering or rolling as well developing their ball skills such as rolling and catching. Please ensure your child wears their PE kit with long hair tied back where necessary (no bows or trainers).

Family Homework

Thank you to everyone who has brought in their Family Homework the children really enjoyed talking about how they made their pictures and models of buildings in the community.

Snack

Just a reminder, snack is 50p a week, which we will collect per half term. The total for this half term is £3.00.

Thank you for your support.

Nursery Team: Miss McGeachie, Mrs Godfrey, Mrs Ross, Miss Evans.
