Welcome to Nursery!
Happy New Year everybody!
Welcome back to those joining us in Nursery Class for another year, and a very warm welcome to those joining us for the first time! We are very excited to have you all. We are looking forward to starting 2019 with lots of exciting things!
This Spring Term will hold a focus on Settling In, for both our new, and returning students, with a focus on PSED (personal, social and emotional development). We will be encouraging discussions around the expectations of students in Nursery Class, as well as promoting friendly and positive behaviour towards our peers and adults in the setting.
This year we will be visiting the Library on a Thursday. Children take home a library book every week. Please bring book bags at least every Thursday so that we can give your child a new book. We will also be giving you the work the children have completed that week via their book bags.
This year we will be doing PE on a Monday. Whilst Nursery students so not require a separate PE kit, please consider what the children are wearing as we will be playing games and learning skills that will require the children to move freely and comfortably.
In Nursery Class we sing frequently, both familiar Nursery Rhymes, and learning new songs! We encourage you to sing with your child at home, as singing is important in helping children develop their language and communication. It will also develop their listening skills and get them ready for Phonics.
Many thanks from the Nursery Team,
Class Teacher: Sophie Khan
Nursery Nurse: Dilek Bulbul
Teaching Assistant: Shanika Gordon
Talk4Writing is a scheme pioneered by Pie Corbett so help raise attainment in Primary and Secondary students with regards to their story telling, and laterally their creative writing.
In EYFS, children begin to learn the actions to stories that they listen to. They are encouraged to follow a story map of the story we're looking at, and will quite often begin to attempt their own story maps. If you are interested in learning more about Talk4Writing, the link is below.
