Dear Parents and Carers

We will be starting our new topic of ‘Friends’. We will think about our friends and what we do together at Nursery and at home with them.
We are also celebrating our school feast day on Friday 25th May with a liturgy in the garden and a picnic in the Playground afterwards. Parents are welcome to attend both the liturgy and the picnic


Communications, Language and Literacy

This week we will be continuing our topic on Minibeasts. We will be learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and sequencing the stages in order.
At home:

  • Talk about minibeasts that the children know and try to name them. See if you are able to spot any when you are outside.  
  • Think about the letter sounds you can hear at the beginning of words when you say them e.g: ‘b’ for bear, ‘C‘ for cat.


This week we will be continuing to think  about what number comes before another number.
For Example:   
What number comes before 3?
What number comes before 5?

At Home:
Find sets of 5 objects, practise counting them.
Encourage your children to look for numbers in the environment e.g. On buses, doors signs.
