Our topic this half term is ‘Did Dragons exist? ’

                           This half term we are focusing our topic on mini-beasts. We will be learning about different mini-beasts throughout our topic which will include looking at what they eat, where they live and what they do. The children will be looking for mini-beasts in our play ground and in the community gardens. We will be reading stories relating to different mini-beasts such as Superworm and Aaaarrgghh spider, along with information books. Nursery will be having some special visitors joining us in the way of stick insect eggs which the children will be able to care for and watch tehm grow.

                      EVERYDAY’S A LEARNING DAY!!

We are learning new sounds, numbers and some new rhymes. Our investigation area homes our classroom snail which the children look after and watch grow as they grow. We begin the day by registering in family groups which develops speaking and listening, knowledge and understanding and turn taking. Days of the week, the weather and theme based learning is done during this circle time.

The children are developing their pre-writing skills by doing ‘write dance’ every day. Literacy and Maths are covered daily in our family groups. Children also have lots of opportunities to learn through carefully planned child initiated indoor and outdoor activities which are facilitated by the teaching staff.

At home you can help your child by:

Encouraging your child to speak in full sentences.

Practicing their numbers,basic shapes, colours and letter sounds.

Encouraging your child to be independent (toileting, hand washing, coats and shoes).



Thank you for all the support that you have given your child so far. Children are coming on in leaps and bounds!

 Thank you to all that have attended ‘Hook a Book’ sessions so far, please continue to support your child in this way on Friday’s at 11:10 and 3:10.
