Hello Nursery parents and carers!

We have had another hot and sunny week in Nursery.  We have spent lots of time making learning choices outdoors in the garden and exploring our water topic. 

Please could you make sure your child brings their school sun hat to Nursery as we are now experiencing very hot and sunny days.  If you wish your child to wear sun cream please apply it before they come to Nursery.  Thank you.  

You are welcome to bring a spare set of uniform for your child and leave it on their peg which can be used when necessary.  Please make sure all uniform items are named.  Thank you.  


 This week we have been learning about how we can be a good friend, and we made a poster using our ideas. Next week we will be starting a new topic 'Our World'.  We will be learning about the beautiful world around us. 


This week we have been adding one more to a group of objects eg a group of 5 objects, add one more to make 6.  Next week we will continue to learn about adding one more and understanding that the last number is the total amount. 

This week we have been providing activities to support the story of 'Moses and the Bulrushes' as part of an art project for the National Gallery.  We made a lovely basket for Moses, and we have been looking at a painting called 'Finding Moses' and talking about what we can see in the picture.  Next week we will finish the Moses basket and continue to learn about the story. 

At home: Encourage your child to look for numbers when you are out and about - on signs, shops, houses or buses.  Practice counting 5 objects at home.  Play 'I spy' to encourage your child to identify the initial sound at the beginning of the word.  Encourage your child to say the initial sound at the beginning of their name. 

There are some good activities that you may like to try on these websites:
