Nursery Newsletter 16.4.18

Dear Parent/Carer,
We hope you had a lovely Easter Break. We are looking forward to an exciting Summer term, hopefully the warmer weather will continue! Our topic is 'Amazing Animals'. We are starting the topic this week by thinking about the question 'Are eggs alive?' The children have a variety of eggs to examine, including frogspawn!

There school will be closed for pupils on the following days this half term. This is for a polling day and inset days.
25th May 
3rd May
29th June

Our school trip for Barleylands is on the 10th May. Information about this will be available
next week.

Mark Making/Creative
The children have feathers and other collage materials available to create their own fluffy birds/chicks.

We will be encouraging the children to count objects accurately and learn that the last number said is the total. The children have plastic eggs on the maths table, they will be encourage to count the spots on the eggs and match this with the number.

In their weekly PE lessons the children are learning different running and chasing games. They
have to listen carefully to instructions to achieve this.

Communication and Language
We are continuing to focus on rhyme this week. The children are playing matching
rhyming games in small groups. Please point out any rhyming words in stories you
are reading at home.
Encouraging children to use simple sentences correctly.
Encouraging children to hold a conversation and respond to comments.

Understanding of the World
The children will be examining different eggs and watch a clip of chicks hatching. This half term we have tadpoles they will be able to observe them closely as the grow and change. The children will also be able to visit the chicks coming shortly to Year 2.

In the home corner we will be giving the children opportunities to re-enact
experiences and talk about their home lives.

Personal and Social Development
Ensuring children are able to co-operate with routines and some boundaries.
Modelling the correct behaviours in play, ensuring children use resources well
and begin to share with other children.

Kind regards,
The Nursery Team
