Welcome to Summer 1, Nursery!
I hope you have all had a nice break and Easter. Our topic this half term is Minibeasts - we will be talking about the life cycles of different animals and read books such as The Odd Egg, Aaargh A Spider, Superworm, The Very Busy Spider and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We are even going to have real snails in our classroom! We will take care of them, feed them lettuce, observe them and learn about their body parts. In Maths, we will continue to focus on numbers up to 5 and look at 2D shapes, patterns and weight. In Literacy, we will be learning to trace lines, circles, make marks and continue to practise writing our names. We will also talk about Eid celebrations and go on a trip to Culpeper Community Garden.
Please remember to bring your water bottles and spare clothes to school (make sure everything is labelled with names). Also keep checking Tapestry to see what the children are doing in class and upload your own photos or videos that you would like to share with the class. A big thank you to all the parents who are already doing it!
Welcome to Spring 2!
I hope you have all had a nice half-term break and are excited to come back to school. This half term our topic will be What's inside? What's outside?. In Literacy, we will be reading books such as 100th Day Worries, My World, Your World and Whatever Next! to think about things we can see outside of our country and planet. We will read 10 Things I can do to Help my World to talk about recycling and think about things we put in the bin. We will continue to encourage good oral hygiene by talking to the children about the importance of brushing our teeth and read The Boy Who Hated Toothbrushes and Avocado Baby to talk about things inside our mouth and body.
In Maths, we will focus on numbers from 1 to 3, look at ways of representing them and counting up to 3. We will also explore length and height by comparing different objects using the appropriate vocabulary. We will learn to describe our day by sequencing pictures, using prepositions such as "before", "after" and "next" as well as talking about the days of the week. We will also make our own visual timetables.
We will also look at some special days such as Shrove Tuesday, St David's Day, St Patrick's Day, Mother's Day, World Book Day and Red Nose Day.
Please remember to bring your water bottles to school and label the children's clothing.
Happy New Year and welcome back Holly class!
I hope you have all had a nice break and are excited to be back for Spring 1. A very special welcome to all the new children and parents who are just joining our class. Our topic this half-term is Traditional Tales. We will be reading favourite stories such as The Three Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and on January 31st we will join in the National Storytelling Week. We will also be learning about different cultures and traditions by looking at how Chinese New Year is celebrated. In Maths, we will continue learning about numbers 1-5 as well as 2D shapes, weight, size and positional language.
Parents please remember to bring the children's spare clothes (in a bag labelled with their name) and water bottles to school as well as label their jumpers and coats.
Hi Holly class,
This term the topic is My favourite books (all about me). In this topic we will be reading some classic books like We are going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and new ones like Leaf Man by Denise Jackson. We will talk about the change in the season - Autumn - and about our family.
Please remember to bring spare clothes, a water bottle (with your name on it) and your book bag. Every day you can take a new "favourite book" to read at home with your family.
Welcome to summer 2! Our Topic for this term is
Teddy Bears’ Picnic and Wonderful Women.
Welcome to the new school year. We are all very excited about welcoming you to Nursery on Tuesday 8th September 2020. We have been busy making arrangements for the children’s safe return to school and look forward to be seeing you all.
I am your nursery teacher Miss Enrique and your Early Years’ Practitioners are Miss Debbie Mann (toddler manager), Miss Shanika Gordon and Miss Dilek Bulbul.
Our first topic is called My Favourite Things – a lovely one for everyone to share about their favourite things and important people in their lives. A great getting-to-know-you topic. This is also a chance for the children to learn about their new nursery classmates. Friendship and positive relationships are so important in normal times, but even more now after lockdown.
The whole of EYFS will do P.E. lessons Friday mornings 9-10am. For the first term, we ask that your child comes to school on Fridays in their PE kit, including plimsolls/trainers, to better participate in the lessons. They can stay in these more comfortable clothes for the whole day. If you have any questions about this, please see Miss Prentice.
Tapestry – your child’s online learning journal
We use Tapestry to record your child’s learning over the week and the whole year. We publish to your email each Friday afternoon so you can share and relive these learning highlights with your child. Our parents have told us that it provides a great “chatting moment” with their child and bridges school and home better.
Please log in and start this sharing on Friday week 1!
One parents excellent advice is to “download the free app”.
Any questions about this, please ask me or Miss Prentice (Early Years’ leader) or email her at email@example.com
Welcome again to our fabulous community where we all aim high about our children’s curiosity about learning.
