Nursery Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers


This week we will be continuing the topic ‘Our World’ and this week we will be going on a senses walk.  We will be talking about what we can see, hear, smell and touch.

Communication, Language and Literacy

We have been reading the story ‘I Love Animals’.

We will be writing our own class book based on the story.

The children will be choosing an animal and writing a sentence e.g I love the calf because it drinks the milk.

We will continue to find objects by segmenting the sounds in words. e.g can you find p-e-g.    

Some children are finding it difficult to hear the initial sounds in words. To support them we will continue to think of words that begin with the same letter sound to reinforce our knowledge of alliteration.

At Home: Ask your child to find objects that begin with the same sound. eg spoon, sand, sea, sink.  

Maths Development

This week we will continue to count sets of objects. We will be teaching the children how to separate a group of five objects in different ways and begin to recognise that the total is still the same

For example:  5 objects can be shown.


Continue to count a set of 4 or 5 objects and separate them in different ways to show that the total is the same. 

General Information

  • Please put this date in your diaries. We will be having a Nursery Family picnic on Wednesday 19th July in Lloyd Park. We will all come to Nursery first and then all leave together. We will get the tram to the park and we will then spend time running around before we all have our picnic together. Fingers crossed the weather is good! Start saying your prayers now!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask any of the Nursery staff.
Thank you for your support.
Miss Mitchell and the Nursery Team.
