This term in nursery we will be making the most of Nature Land with regular tree climbing and den building sessions. We will be warming ourselves up in the cold weather round camp fires and will learn how to cook marshmallows as well as write with charcoal sticks.
The nursery class have PE sessions every Tuesday. This term we will be looking at different ways of moving, thowing and catching balls and enjoying the apparatus in the gym. We will also be working hard to change our shoes and socks by ourselves.
This term we have already had a visit from the Fire Brigade, a parent has shown us a fizzing potion experiment and we have met some real cats. We will soon be visiting the local shops (to buy ingredients), posting letters in nearby post box and learning about crossing roads safely.
We always follow the children’s interests in play so are never quite sure where the next day will lead us – the children have already instigated a CAT DAY and a MUD MAKING afternoon! Do make sure are logged on to Tapestry and are receiving our weekly Nursery News via ParentMail to keep up to date with our latest adventures in learning play.
Towards the end of this term we will be preparing for our nursery Nativity and look forward to seeing parents and friends at the performance on Thursday 14th December.
HOW CAN YOU HELP AT HOME? - As the weather gets colder, the children will have to wear coats to play outside. Please encourage to put on their own coat at home - it will help them to feel more independent at nursery.
In Nursery we plan activities in response to children's interests and regularly meet with parents to talk about what they like doing at home. Our plans are very fluid - responding to children's immediate enthusiasms e.g. snails, puddles, something they have found on the way to nursery and can involve impromptu visits to the local shops if the children decide they want to make a cake today and we need to buy the ingredients! The plans attached give some themes we may be looking at over the term and the year.
We email a weekly newsletter to keep you up to date with what we've been doing in nursery, to give ideas of how you can support your child's learning at home and to tell you about upcoming events. If you are not receiving these emails regularly, please contact the office tel: 01223 568834
