Welcome to Nursery!
We have lots of fun in our room and work very hard learning and experiencing new things.
This term our topic is animal stories . Our cooking will be based around our topic e.g. making delicious vegetable soup as part of 'duck in the truck', Hairy Maclary's biscuits in the shape of his bone . We regularly use the musical instruments to make sounds and copy those we hear around us , we also do write dance . We will be using the computer to create colourful pictures and we will be learning our numbers and how to begin making number sentences by adding two or three groups of objects together, we will probably use fruits and vegetables to do this practically so that it is easier to understand at first. As we have been working so very hard in our Read, Write, Inc sessions we will now be beginning to sound out simple CVC words and begin to use these to write some simple sentences, by just listening to the sounds in the words that we can hear. During our craft sessions, we will be learning to use scissors to cut along a straight line and round a curve.. We will be busy counting and practicing writing our names and continue learning the sounds we have not yet met.
Some children will begin our new BLAST scheme to encourage turn taking, interaction, concentration and sentence formation , all of the children will get the opportunity to complete this by the end of the year. This term we will work hard to share and make friends with the new children who have joined our nursery.
This term we will behaving our photo taken as a class so please remember to look for the photo on the wall so that you can decide whether to order a copy or not(it's such a lovely reminder of your child's first class)
We have a lovely outside area with a climbing wall, water tray, stage, cave and a wiggly bridge we also have fun on our bikes, trikes and scooters, we will be using the outside area more and more as the weather improves as the children just love being outside in the warm sunshine.
We do PE on a Monday and go to join the rest of the school on a Friday for Golden Assembly in the hall, where we receive Head Teacher Awards if we have been really good or worked particularly hard, just like the older children in school.
On Monday we ask the children to bring in a piece of fruit and on a Tuesday and Thursday we change our reading books.
The nursery runs two sessions per day. One class begins at 9.00 am until 12 am and the second begins at 12 pm until 3 pm it is really important to arrive on time so that the children do not miss anything and can keep to their routine.
The children attend the nursery either a.m. or p.m. . They have access to a wide range of resources both indoors and out. Their learning is carefully planned and monitored to ensure that they learn in a safe, stimulating and caring environment. They can attend from as young as three years of age but attendance at playgroup prior to Nursery is advised.
