Nursery Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers

The children have now had five busy weeks in Nursery enjoying in lots of good learning and making new friends. They have been enjoying their learning both inside the Nursery and in the garden. They have also started to venture into the Reception areas to make different learning choices.


This week we will be talking about Baptism as part of our ‘Welcome‘ topic. We will learn that we are welcomed in to God’s family when we are Baptised. We will act out a Baptism and talk about the Baptism photos some of you have brought into Nursery.
If you have a picture of your child at their Baptism please bring it in to school so we can talk about it and display it on our RE board.   

Nursery Rhymes 

We will be focusing on ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ this week. We will be singing the song, listening to a story based on the rhyme and completing activities connected with ‘Incy Wincy Spider.’
At home: Please continue to sing Nursery Rhymes with your children.  They will be able to sing ‘Twinkle, Twinkle’, ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’, ‘Humpty Dumpty’ and Incy Wincy Spider to you by the end of this week.


This week we will continue our focus on the numbers 1,2 and 3.
We will be counting to 3 and recognising numerals 1,2 and 3.
At Home: Please count groups of 3 objects and think about what the numeral 3 looks like.


We will be continuing with our colour topic. This week we will continue to look at ‘GREEN’
The children will be painting in green and mixing blue and yellow paint together to make green. We will also be thinking about fruit and vegetables that are the colour green.
At Home: Find things in your home that are green and please bring them into Nursery to show us. We can put them on our green table in Nursery.
