Nursery Learning Leaflet January 2017
Welcome back, hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year. We have welcomed all our new children and families.
The children have been embracing Show and Tell and are really keen to share their favourite belongings with their friends. We will continue encourage emergent writing in all areas of the nursery, with a particular focus on name writing independently. We are working hard to develop the children’s confidence and knowledge of both familiar and new songs. We are supporting the children to reflect and evaluate the activities in nursery to encourage and to become more familiar with such language. Our pre-school children will be given story sacks home fortnightly these are to be shared and enjoyed with your child. We appreciate any feedback you have for us regarding the story sacks.
As well as child led numeracy activities we will be focusing on measurement and shape, through indoor and outdoor activities. We will continue to provide daily opportunities using the Numicon to further familiarise your child with this resource.
Health and Well Being
We are currently focusing on Our Senses. The children are taking ownership of their floor book to record their development and experiences. So far we have been on a listening walk, painted with spices in our paint, had a touchy feely box and played sound lotto with a cassette tape ( the children had no idea what is was!!) We have Gym all day Tuesday and a Wednesday am where we are looking at a variety of skills. Please ensure your child has on comfy joggers or leggings on these days. These photos and videos will be posted regularly on the school website.
As always, please share any concerns or questions you have with a member of the Nursery Team.
