Dear Parents and Carers,
This year has started amazingly well. We were so pleased to see how well the children settled back into Nursery.
This half term we are learning about “Transport and Journeys”. Attached is an overview planning sheet outlining broadly what we will cover during this period. This is a guide and is, therefore, not “set in stone” but will give you an idea as to what your child will be learning about each week.
As part of topic, we will be embarking on a number of local trips. If you would like to offer help, please speak with a member of staff.
We will be continuing to support children to develop their literacy skills and will encourage this through their play. It would help if you could follow this up at home, for example by identifying letters and numbers and encouraging them to represent those that they see on doors, buses and in the shops.
We are developing the children’s awareness of letters and sounds through song, story, rhymes and initial sounds in words of interest.
We have a wide selection of books in our library for your child to borrow. You may choose a book with your child in the morning. Please ensure that books are promptly returned and placed back on the shelf for others to enjoy.
We are very pleased when you share with us “new” learning which has taken place at home. Please continue to fill in “Big News” slips when your child does something new or special, particularly if it is related to our topic.
Thank you to all of the parents who helped with the playdough rota. Please let us know if you are not able to do this.
Please continue to help your child to develop their independence e.g. getting dressed and doing up fastenings, making healthy food choices, wiping their own nose, hand washing and being independent in the toilet. This will support what we are promoting them to do at school.
Thank you for your support.
The Nursery Team
