Our topic this half term is ‘Traditional Tales ’

                           This half term we are focusing our topic on Traditional tales. We will be reading the Three Little Pigs, The Little Red Hen, Billy Goats Gruff and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
For this topic we have been to Birmingham library with our moms and dads.
March is also the month of World book day, where children came into school dressed as their favourite book character or in their pyjamas ready for a bed time story.
For our story of The Little Red Hen we are making our own bread and butter just like the hen.
For our story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears we are having a teddy bears picnic. Children will be making sandwiches, cakes and biscuits for our tea party on Thursday 28th of March. Children will be invited into school in their party clothes along with their teddy bear.
On Friday 29th March we are inviting ALL moms to our hook’a’book session for a mother’s day celebration.

Nursery’s Stars of the week

                      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!

It is amazing to see how quickly children have settled into the nursery setting and are already become confident, independent little learners.
