Our topic this half term is 'Colour Me Happy!'. We shall be sharing a range of stories and taking part in lots of activities related to colour. We will also be looking at non-fiction books related to a range of festivals, including Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas. In Maths we will be still be working on counting and number recognition, progressing to ordering and 1:1 correspondence counting. We will also be looking at measures- length, capacity etc and using non-standard units to measure. During this term (and throughout their time in Nursery) we have a huge emphasis on enhancing the children's social skills such as turn taking, listening and sharing. We also work on the skills that the children need to become independent learners.
In Nursery we access the outside area in all weathers, so please make sure your child is dressed appropriately. The children also take part in a weekly forest school session, as well as accessing our grass bank area other times during the week. Therefore they will need a named pair of wellies to be kept at school. Some parents like to also send in waterproofs/puddlesuits for their children for our forest school sessions, however if you wish to do so please ensure that your child is able to put this on and remove it themselves.
Due to the current circumstances, we will inform you when we can start planning events and will hopefully be able to welcome you into school in the near future. Please respect the guidance that we have in place to keep your children safe. We currently have the one-way system in the playground to ensure appropriate social distancing, please adhere to rules and remember to wait patiently!
