Welcome to Nursery!
Welcome to Spring 1!
During this half term we will be learning about Winter weather and comparing it with other seasons. We will be encouraging the children to develop their writing skills including how to hold a pencil correctly and talking more about the marks they make.
We will continue to plan and assess using the Early Years curriculum, however the children's interests will continue to be at the core of everything that we do.
The stories we will be using as a stimulus for this topic include;
Elmer in the Snow, Brave little Polar bear, Dear Zoo, Polar bear Polar bear what do you hear?, The treasure of Pirate Frank and a range of non-fiction texts to support our Winter topic.
In phonic sessions we will be learning how to;
create simple rhythms using body percussion, hear and say the initial sounds in words and learning how to identify words that rhyme.
In Number we will;
continue to count objects to 10 and beyond, continue to match numerals to quantities, encourage children to develop their own mathematical problems and recognise similarities of shapes in the environment.
We want to share your child's learning with you, so please look regularly on Primary Essence
allowing us to share the children's experiences . If you are a new parent, Nursery will provide you with a Username and Password
within the next couple of weeks.
As always if you have any questions or queries, please don't hesitate to speak to a member of staff. Thank you for your continued support!
The Nursery team
