BOTANICAL GARDENS TRIP
Please make sure you have signed the consent form for the Nursery School Trip, which takes place on Thursday 14th June. If you would like to come along and help, please sign your name on the form in the Nursery cloakroom.
This term we will be focusing on the following:
Understanding of the World - Minibeasts
We will be transforming our role play area into a Minibeast exploration lab. The children will be learning all about minibeasts and how to treat them with care. We will also be planting seeds and vegetables in our raised bed area to focus on growth and change in nature.
Maths - Number and Shape
We will continue to recognise numbers 1-5 and beyond, counting objects to 5 and beyond and consolidating our knowledge of shape.
Literacy - Reading
We will be looking at the story of Stick Man and I'm Not a Stick, to help develop the children's creative imagination and drawing skills.
Communication and Language: Questions and Answers
Thank you to parents who have already volunteered to take part in our Show and Tell sessions, we are looking forward to learning about Lithuania, Chile, Eid and Easter and hope the sessions inspire the children to continue to develop their questioning skills. If you would like to take part please sign the form in the Nursery cloakroom.
We will be enjoying PE in the outside area and focusing on ball skills.
We will also be continuing our Write Dance (Scrimbling) sessions. Write Dance is a teaching method that provides movement opportunities so children can develop the physical skills needed to develop their mark-making and later, handwriting skills. Find out more at http://writedancetraining.com/
EAD: Imaginative play
We will be using the role play area where the children can use their imagination to be explorers and scientists. If you have any resources at home (eg googles, white coats, binoculars etc) they would be gratefully received.
Please join us in Nursery every Tuesday morning to help your child select a book to take home.
Books are changed every week.
Please note that book bags need only be brought into Nursery on Tuesdays for Book Change.
We ask for a contribution of £1 per week which we use to purchase resources for Nursery, such as ingredients for playdoh, cooking and craft resources. This can be given directly to the Nursery staff and can be paid weekly or termly
Toys in Nursery
Please can we ask that children do not enter the Nursery with toys. They are often left behind, lost or get broken.
