( 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.
The children have enjoyed the sunshine and we have all embraced the warm weather by getting outside as much as possible!
In Nursery the children talked about themselves and their features as they created self portraits for the classroom display. The children also used their fine motor skills to make their very own fruit kebab.
In Reception we shared the story Funny Bones and talked about the repeated refrain and how the use of speech bubbles make the writing more interesting. Our favourite song this week was 'The Skeleton Dance'. Please see the link :
We also made our very own story map.
We are following the Letters and Sounds phonics programme and have completed phase 2 , set 1 letters. 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 all practised our counting and number recognition this week. We used dice, Numicon and a variety of other resources to support this learning.
Talking Bags have been given out to the Jellyfish group this week, please see the bag for instructions.
Please send the children into school wearing their PE on Friday mornings, they will need their full uniform in their bags to change into. Thank you for your continued support.
In Foundation Stage the staff are -
Mrs Dhariwal, Mrs Gleed, Miss Taylor and Mrs Todorov
Mrs Hardy will teach on Wednesday mornings as she is covering PPA time in the setting.
Do take a look at the photographs, it is fun to see what the children have been doing at school this week.
Our Autumn term topics are : All About Me , Autumn and Autumn Celebrations
Please see below for some information about Reception:
P.E will usually be on Friday 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 Wednesday, so please make sure your child has their library book in their book bag.
Please see below for some information about Nursery:
Tuesdays - Library
Friday - We run the Daily Mile. We would appreciate it if children that 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.
