Spring Term 2
Welcome back to the second half of our Spring Term and the continuation of our Traditional Tales theme. We are really excited about delivering this half terms provision to the children which will have a huge focus on reading and emotional literacy. Storytelling and language have a huge impact on children’s learning and ability to use language. This ability is one of the indicators used to determine the success of a child in future life. Although our children are very young it is vital we immerse them in the language of storytelling both in school and at home. With this in mind this term seeks to combine traditional storytelling with drama, rhyme and song to promote children’s ability to soak up language and to make sense of it in relation to their daily lives. Although this is what we always do throughout Early Years, we are focusing on the use of storytelling to improve children’s language, emotional literacy and well-being and shall be assessing the impact of this on the children’s progress within these areas.
This term will also see us meet ‘Pantasaurus’ and the NCPCC Underpants Rule, which teachers children about appropriate touch and what to do if they are put in an inappropriate situation.
Look out for dates for out Mother’s Day Stay and Play session which provide you with the opportunity to view your child’s learning journey, watch them interact in their learning environment and discuss progress and well-being with your child’s teacher.
Well done to all the children who have completed or tried hard to complete their home challenges. New class learning challenge targets shall be given during the first few weeks of this term. Don’t worry if your child has not met last terms target, last term was only short and the majority of children are only in nursery for 15hrs.
We are also looking forward to this terms visit to church to celebrate Easter and to share the ‘Good News.’
Thank you for continuing to support us in your child’s learning.
