Our topic this term is 'Waddling into Winter'
Literacy - We will be reading a range of stories that are related to winter and water.
Throughout our activities we will be introducing some 'Write Dance' activities and continuing with our 'Dough Disco' sessions to help strengthen our fine motor control skills.
Maths - Our maths work will include forming numbers, recording numbers, counting and ordering numbers and shape arrangement.
Phonics - We will be creating our own patterns of sound and thinking about words that rhyme.
Topic work- The children will be exploring and observing ice and the heating and melting process. The children will be given lots of opportunities to discuss the things that that they have observed.
Our new topic this term is 'Down in the Woods!'
We will be reading a range of stories which will include Peace at Last, Little Red Riding Hood and We're Going on a Bear Hunt. We will be talking about the characters, ordering the stories and acting out the events.
During Maths we will focus on counting, number recognition, shape and pattern work. Please help your child by looking for numbers in the environment whilst out and about. See if you can find any shapes and say their names.
Our topic work will include building dens, planning a picnic, baking activities and looking at animals and their habitats.
This term we welcome all of our new children and their families to our Nursery alongside welcoming back some of our older children who will continue their journey with us. We hope that you have enjoyed the summer break and that you're now looking forward to all the exciting things we have planned for the new school year.
This half term our topic is 'I am Special'. We will be learning how to make new friends whilst settling in to the Nursery routine. We will begin our topic by learning about our body parts and our senses and how we use them.
Please spend some time talking to your child about their senses and the different parts and functions of our amazing bodies.

Stay and Play Sessions
The Stay and Play sessions have now restarted. The activities are aimed at children aged 2 and 3 years of age and take place in our Nursery. Please see the school office or a member of staff for further details.
We are always working very hard in Nursery to ensure that your child gets the very best start. You will receive a School Newsletter each week and a Nursery Newsletter every half term to keep you informed on our Half Termly Topics, Wow Events, Achievements, and 'At Home' practical activities to support your child's learning at home. This information can also be obtained from our Nursery Notice Board and right here on our class page.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage we use a piece of software/app called Tapestry. It allows us to take photos/videos of your child, link them to the age bands that they are working in and then share this with you via email. This software/app will also enable parents/carers to send photos/videos to Mrs Lee and the Nursery team which we can share with your child throughout the morning. More information will be provided over the next few weeks.
