So far in Nursery ...

 

We have welcomed back last term's afternoon part-timers, who now attend the slightly longer morning session. We are settling into our routines and further developing our social skills as well as practising skills such as pencil and scissor control, counting and singing.  We have particularly enjoyed joining the children from Reception classes all the way up to Year 3 classes for a singing session in the school hall on Friday mornings.  Last week, we learnt an African song and this week we learnt a Welsh song.

 

We have now also welcomed our new part-timers into Nursery, some of whom only turned 3 last month!  They attend the afternoon session.  They have done really well to settle into the new environment where everything is new and there are nearly 30 other little people to get along with.  We have been learning about working with other people, sharing and taking turns.  We are singing, painting, learning how to hold a pencil properly, recognising colours, counting small numbers of objects, building towers, threading beads and drawing.  

 

 

Our first topic - 'Why do you love me so much?'

 

Our first topic is called 'Why do you love me so much?' In this topic, which is about love, families and how people are the same and different, we will explore the questions: 'What is special about me?' and 'How do we show people that we care?'

Dear Parent/Carer

This half term our Cornerstones topic 'Why Do You Love Me So Much?' Explores our families and the people and things that we love. As part of our Knowledge and Understanding of the World we are going to discuss aspects of 'past' and 'present' with the children.

 

Please could you provide us with a photograph of your child during their first year, with a little note explaining the things that they loved to do at that age.

 

Thank you very much for your support.
