This term we are learning about Under the Sea
Welcome back, we hope you had a great 1/2 term break. The weather wasn't to bad. Hopefully summer is just around the corner. The very last term at nursery has arrived for some of our children. This can be an exciting, but sometimes worrying time for your child. Our aim is to make their transition into Reception as seamlessly as possible.
We want you all to feel part of our nursery family. If you have an issue or a concern, please come and speak to us, there is no such thing as a silly question.
Please make sure your child has a coat (named) at school and as the weather continues to shine, please make sure they bring a sun hat with them. Wellies can be left at school (please make sure all clothing is named).
We are really excited to introduce our new topic Under the Sea
The children will be learning different song and rhymes and hopefully we will be having some animal visitors in to nursery.
In Numeracy the children will be beginning to recognise, write and count using the numbers up to 10+. We will be learning to count forwards and backwards, say the number 1 more than a given number, begin to write numbers, count objects accurately and find and use numbers as labels.
In Literacy the children will be learning lots of new rhymes, listening to lots of exciting stories and looking at non-fiction books. They will be writing lots of letter shapes and starting to recognise and write their name. They will look at story settings and story characters and talk about how a story might end.
Our role play area will be a home corner. We will also be having an ice cream van
In our mini topic we will be learning all about Summer. We will be looking at changes through the season.
In nursery we have themed days
Monday - Rhyme day
Tuesday - Story day
Wednesday - Letter day
Thursday - Number day
Friday - Word day
We will be learning songs and rhymes about different people who help us, please help your child to learn them at home.
