   After a busy first half term in Nursery we are now excited about starting our new topic, Mythical Magic, for this second part of the term. We have begun by reading Going on a Bear Hunt, a real favourite with the children and we will also be reading Cinderella as our traditional tale.

Entry day on Friday 8th November will continue with the magical theme, so children can dress as princesses, superheroes or fairies or just wear their favourite clothes. On this day we will be doing lots of magical activities. 

 

Also this half term we have a visit from a dental nurse who will be teaching the children how important it is to look after their teeth and to eat less sugary sweets and drinks. She will also encourage the children to throw away their dumbies, soothers and baby bottles by asking them to bring them into Nursery, where they can be put in a box to be given to the baby reindeers.

 

Next week also sees our charity day for Children in Need. This will have a sports theme so children can wear sports clothes on this day.

 

This half term will see the beginning of our parent book share. Parents will be invited to come into Nursery for 10 minutes at the beginning of the session to look at a book with your child. This session is very relaxed and is for parents and children to enjoy looking at our Nursery books.

 

Towards the end of this term we will invite parents, grandparents and family members to come and join us for our Christmas Carol performance (date to be confirmed).

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.
