Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you are all keeping well.
The children have been very busy in Nursery this week. They have been engaged in many different learning activities and sharing the fun with their friends.
Morning session (part time):
8.50 - 11.50 or 9.00 - 12.00 or 9.10 - 12.10 or 9.20 - 12.20
All day (full time):
8.50 - 2.50 or 9.00 - 3.00 or 9.10 - 3.10 or 9.20 - 3.20 Thank you all for trying to arrive at the times your child has been given - we really appreciate it.
We will send books home in your child's book bag on Mondays and Fridays. Please send your child's book bag in to Nursery every Monday and again to change the books every Friday. The book is for you to share with your child at home.
Please make sure that all of your child's uniform is clearly named. Please make sure your child is not wearing any earrings or any type of jewellery. It is for safety reasons and is not part of the school uniform.
We would be very grateful if you could check at home to see if you have any of the nursery's spare uniform that your child may have worn home. We are running low on jogging bottoms and girls pants. Thank you.
Thank you for the very kind donations of tissues. We are very grateful.
We will continue to learn about the number 1 to ensure that the children become secure in their understanding of its value.
We will continue to learn how to recognise what the amount of 1 looks like by choosing a pot with one object in it. The children will be asked to choose between two pots - one pot with 1 item or another pot with 2 items.
We will continue to learn number rhymes to help with your child's understanding of numbers and counting.
Encourage your child to show you 1 toy or object at home.
See if you can identify the number 1 when you are out and about. Maybe on the bus or in a shop window.
We will continue with the RE topic 'Welcome'.
We are going to be learning about our Baptism and how we were welcomed into God's family when we were Baptised.
If you could bring in a photo of your child's Baptism we would love to put it on our 'Welcome' display on our RE board in Nursery.
Our topic for literacy this half term is 'Nursery Rhymes'.
This week we will be learning the Nursery rhyme 'Humpty Dumpty'
We will be encouraging the children to join in with their friends and sing the song together.
We will use activities to support this and we will be creating some art work to display in the Nursery.
Please share a story with your child each day as it helps their language development and their understanding of the world around them and it's a great way to end the day. Maybe you could sing one of the nursery rhymes we have been learning in Nursery.
We hope you all have a good week.
