A warm welcome to the new children who have started nursery. This term we will be busy growing our own vegetables. We will be planting peas, radishes, carrots, potatoes, onions, beetroot and courgettes. This project will enable the children to learn first hand the importance of looking after living things. As part of our ongoing topic on life cycles the children have been observing the life cycle of a frog, currently at the tadpole stage! Later on in the term we will be learning about the process of a caterpillar changing into a butterfly. We hope this will be an interesting project for everyone. The children will also be learning about transport including space travel, and the zoo.
Key stories for this term include Jack and the Beanstalk, The Hungry Caterpillar, Monkey Puzzle, The Naughty Bus and Whatever Next.If you would like to share these stories at home and they are not in the library please ask a member of staff for a copy.Reading with your child is a fun way to help them learn and develop language.
During key worker time the children who are starting school in September will be continuing to learn counting and number recognition from 1-10. We will also be learning some letter sounds in preparation for reception.
The children will continue to spend a lot of time outside. Please ensure they bring a coat and wear sun cream on a hot day to prevent sunburn.It would be helpful if children could wear velcro fastened shoes rather than laces.
