Welcome to Nursery!
Welcome to Autumn 1!
During this half term we will be welcoming lots of new children into Nursery. We will be encouraging the children to settle into new Nursery routines, make new friends and develop their confidence.
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;
My first day at Nursery, The day the crayons quit, Elmer, Colin and Lee (carrot and pea), Alfie, Percy park keeper and stories relating to Autumn, the weather and Harvest time.
In phonic sessions we will be learning how to;
identify environmental and instrumental sounds. We will also be exploring body percussion and rhythm and rhyme.
In Number we will;
begin to count a small group of objects, recite some numbers in the correct sequence, begin to make comparisons between quantities, notice simple shapes and patterns, and use the language of size.
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
Mrs Lalor, Mrs McDermott, Mrs Petrie and Miss Spencer
