( Nursery and Reception)
We love to learn by playing and exploring.
We enjoy learning about lots of different topics. Watch this space for pictures and information about all our adventures.
Foundation Stage have shared 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear' this week. The children were very keen to talk about their ideas on how they like to fall asleep and how they too can sometimes be sacred of the dark.
We talked about the pictures and how they tell a story themselves, and how words are not always needed to understand what is happening.
Christmas has also arrived in Early Years! We have such a great collection of books we would like to share with the children it is going to be a real task finding the time between walks, rehearsals and performances next week!
We are following the Letters and Sounds phonics programme and have covered all our single letter sounds. We are beginning to segment and blend the sounds to start our exciting reading journey! This is a super moment for any teacher. Please encourage your child to talk about the sounds they have learnt at school.
In maths we have been learning about number and place value this week. The children were exploring the numbers 3, 4 and 5. We made models using this number of cubes, and thought about different ways of doing this. The children were able to share many ideas about what that particular number means to them. In Nursery the children were set a challenge to find '3' objects and then show an adult. They did a super job!
Both Nursery and Reception have continued making craft Christmas, the glitter is well ands truly embedded into all that we are planning to do over the next two weeks!

P.E will usually be on Wednesday mornings. Please ensure they have their PE kit in school for the whole week as sometimes we have timetable changes.
Thank you for your support.
We usually go to the library on a Monday, so please make sure your child has their library book in their book bag.
Please see below for some information about Nursery:
Wednesday - Library
Friday - We run the Daily Mile. We would appreciate it if children who attend on that day could wear trainer type shoes.
In phonics we are continuing to listen to and recognise the sounds around us, both outside and inside.
Reminding your child to be a sound detective will really help develop early phonics skills. What sounds can they hear around them in the environment and what sounds do they recognise in the words they hear?
In maths we are really focusing on counting in order 1 - 10 and recognising the numeral that corresponds with the number. We are also working on careful counting when counting out objects in order to improve accuracy.
