Welcome back! We hope you all had a good Christmas holiday and a Happy New Year!
If feels good to know our nursery children have already settled in from last term and we can start learning straight away. This term, our topic takes us into the season of winter. The children will be going on a winter walk to look for signs of winter and learn about changes over time. Fingers crossed that we even experience some snow!!!
This will link nicley into our focus book: ‘The Snowman' by Raymond Briggs. The children will have opportunities to do lots of exciting work which, will help them to develop their skills across the seven areas of our Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
We will also be celebrating Chinese New Year and looking at similarities and differences in how different cultures celebrate. We will be cooking and eating Chinese food, making lanterns and attempting some Chinese writing!
After half term, our topic will be ‘Jaspers beanstalk.’ We will be learning about what plants need to grow. We will be planting beans and making sure we look after them. This will tie into Spring and seasonal changes. We will also be celebrating Holi, Mother’s Day and Easter. As well as continuing to practise counting, recognising numbers and learning to recognise our names. Another full packed term!
As always, if you have any questions about anything, please do not hesitate to ask one of our Early Years Staff - Our doors are always open!
Children in Nursery often play and learn outside so it’s very important that your child comes to school with appropriate clothing. As the weather gets colder they will need a warm coat, hat and gloves.
Please label all your child’s clothing and their school bookbag.
Jewellery is not allowed in school except for simple stud earrings.
It is also very useful for your child to have a set of spare clothes in a named bag which can stay on their peg just in case they need to change for any reason.
Please note: The morning session starts at 8.30am (please arrive no later than 8.50am) and finishes at 11.30am. The afternoon session starts at 12.30pm and finishes at 3.30pm (you can pick up from 3.15pm). Please ensure that your child is on time for Nursery so that they do not miss important teaching time.
