Dear Parents and carers,
Happy New Year! We hope you had the loveliest Christmas break.
The children have made a fantastic start 2020 and we are excited to continue our learning over the next half term.
This term we will be continuing our underpinning theme of celebrations. There are lots of festivals and celebrations day over this term including Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter. Alongside these, we will continue to celebrate the children’s birthdays across the term. If you have any special celebrations within your community, please do let us know as we would love to share and celebrate these with the children too!
We will continue to focus on Number, Shape, Space and Measure this term. Please practise recognising shapes and numbers in the environment. Whilst you are walking you can count the cars, buses, trees, flowers. You can look for shapes in the environment both in and outside the home such as road signs, buttons on technological equipment and shapes of objects in the home. Please feel free to email any photographs or comments from the children to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will continue our phonics learning at Nursery through small group time. Children will be introduced to letters and the sounds they make, encouraging the children to listen for initial sounds in words! We are so pleased to see the children are thoroughly enjoying spotting sounds in our environment and thinking of their own ideas in their play.
We will also to continue to foster a love of reading through sharing a variety of stories and songs daily over the term. To support this at home please do share stories with your child every day at home. As a reminder, please do remember to use our Nursery lending library which you can find in the cloakroom area. You can take one book per week.
Just a reminder that our Nursery soft start is from 8.30-8.45am. Please ensure that the children are in Nursery for 8.45am to support with the smooth running of our session. If you arrive after 8.45am, your child will be marked as late.
We look forward to another successful term!
Miss Guyatt, Miss Killick and Miss Bains.
