Highlights from last week’s learning:

This week and last week the children have begun to get used to the routines in nursery.

When they come in, they hang up their coats and bags, put their bee face in the basket and their water bottle on their picture. Then they wash their hands and find something to play with.

At carpet time they are learning to make a circle, sit with their legs crossed and listen quietly when the teacher is speaking.

At snack-time they are learning to wash their hands, choose water or milk and eat a piece of fruit.

At home time they wait for their name to be called and collect their belongings to go home.


Next week’s learning:

  • Story of the week:

We are sharing the Colour Monster as well as other stories of the children’s choice.

  • Number:

We are learning some number rhymes including 5 little men in a flying saucer and 5 currant buns.

  • Phonics:

We are learning to join in group action rhymes, including Incey Wincey Spider and Hickory Dickory Dock.

We are learning to take turns to speak and to listen in a group.

We have 'Carpet time' at the beginning and end of each morning when we sing songs and read stories.

Please ensure your child has a water bottle and a coat with them every day.

They must wear a school top, either t-shirt or jumper, with their own choice of trousers or skirt.

They can keep a spare change of clothes and some wellies on their coat peg.

In cold weather they will need a warm hat, in warm weather, they will need a sunhat.

Please ensure ALL items have their name on!

We like to get messy! Your child might get mud, paint or water on their clothes, it proves how creative they have been.
