Summer Term 1
This term in Nursery we shall be continuing to have lots of fun whilst learning through play. We shall start the term with an investigation-‘How did Humpty Dumpty fall of the wall?’ The children shall engage in some detective work and will explore concepts such as living things and growing.
We shall also be starting our dinosaur topic and learning about the ‘Pantasaurus’ Underpants Rule! This NSPCC programme of study teaches children about appropriate touch and how to keep our ‘privates’, private.
The older nursery children shall also start our whole school phonics programme-Read, Write Inc. Please check out this link on how to say each sound correctly-https:www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYx1CDMZSc
Number formation home-work shall go out this half term to encourage the children to form their numerals correctly. We have included a guide with rhymes to help with this.
We continue to remain committed to providing exciting and purposeful learning opportunities for all our Nursery children. Early Years staff have recently been part of a research project on early language and communication which seeks to ensure all children have the language and communication skills to become successful and confident learners.
Remember we have our ‘Welcome’ Wednesday drop in’s for those parents who would like to stay and play. We shall also have our termly information meeting this half term-the focus shall be early reading.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
