Welcome to all our children in Nursery, especially those children who are new this term.
All of our learning is done through play! Our topic this half term is Marvellous Me! We will be talking about ourselves and how we look. We will also be finding out what makes us unique; what we are good at and what we like doing. We will be working on learning how to share and take turns throughout our Nursery sessions.
As part of our theme we will be drawing, painting and using collage to create self portraits. Circle time will give the opportunity for the children to learn each other's names and talk about what is the same and what is different about each other (hair, eye colour etc.)
We continue to practise counting and recognising numbers, 1 to 5 progressing 1 to 10. We will be looking at shapes in the environment and in play. Sand and water play is a popular activity in Nursery and helps us learn about capacity and volume encouraging children to use the terms "full, empty, pour, drops, fill".
Throughout our Nursery experiences we emphasise talking, developing communication and language to prepare us for learning. Sharing stories and looking at books happens every day and is so important to the children's continuing development and progress. We would love parents to support us in carrying this on at home. During this half term will be inviting parents into Nursery to find out more about reading with your child. We will also be beginning a parent and child book share session (more details to follow).
The books this term are :
'Colin and Lee, carrot and pea'
'Three Little Pigs'
Continuing learning and singing of Nursery Rhymes and action songs.
We look forward to a successful year working together to support your child.
