Dear Parents and Carers,

The children have been very busy learning their songs for our Nativity. We have also been making our Advent promises as we get ready for Jesus’ birthday.


We will be continuing our topic ‘Birthdays’. The children will be thinking about the Advent promises we have made and they will talk about what gift they would give baby Jesus for his birthday.


We will be continuing to read our book ‘Dinosaur Roar.’ We will listen to the story and we will be putting pictures in the correct order to tell the story.

At Home: This is a link to the story of Dinosaur Roar to share at home.


We are thinking about the sounds we can hear at the beginning of words. This week we have been thinking about the sound ‘t’ for tiger and teeth. Next week we will be thinking about the sound ‘i’ for igloo and iguana.

At Home: See if you can think of words beginning with ‘i’ e.g: Igloo, iguana and invitation.


We will continue our learning about number 2. The children will be matching the amount of dots on their card with their friend in their learning group who has the same. We will also be showing the amount of dots on a card using their fingers. At Home: Show your child 2 items and see if t hey can tell you how many there are without counting.

Our Nursery Nativity when we shall be singing songs to tell the story of the birth of baby Jesus is on Friday 15th December at 11am for the morning group and 2pm for the afternoon group. The children are working so hard to learn the songs. We hope you can come to our little celebration for Jesus’ birthday.

Thank you so much for all your support, Miss Fuller and the Nursery Team
