Summer Term in Nursery Class
Welcome back after Easter your children are working hard in Nursery Class and becoming independent with their friends. They are learning in many different ways including play activities. Your children need encouragement all the time to help them learn and develop in confidence.
This term in Literacy we are focusing on Fairy Tales and teaching the children how to look at and use at books correctly. The children are now recognising their own names, starting to write letters in their names and to have the correct pencil grip.
In Numeracy the children are learning to count, recognise numbers and learning about shapes. At home this can be done by number rhymes, songs and lookimg around their home and surrounding enviroment.
Outdoor learning is part of our curriculum so your child needs to come to school dressed for the weather as we do go out every day no matter what the weather!!!!
Remember to apply suncream to your children in the morning and we can then apply our factor 50 suncream on the children through the day if you have given your consent via Parentmail.
If you have any questions or require further information regarding your child please see a member of staff at the end of the day.
Thank you for your co-operation
Mrs. Tweedie, Miss Tomlinson and Mrs Poole.
Your children are now starting to bring home their reading books for you to look at with them. It is important for your children to recognise the concept of print and to know that books have words in them. Reading with your children will help them develop in their communication and vocabulary. The reading books will only be change once a week. On your children's reading pack it states the day in which to bring the reading pack back. A member of the Nursery team will change your children's book after reading the book with your child and they will be given a new book to bring home the following day. Please feel free to write acomment in the green book provided in the reading pack.

As you are aware Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child's experiences during their time with us. In Nursery class we use the Tapestry Learning Journal everyday. It is helping us see the progress your children are making. I would like to encourage you to add photographs, learning and comments of what your child does at home or with family and friends. Your child is learning all the time and they enjoy sharing their home learning experiences with their friends on the Smart Board in Nursery.
If you need further assistance with your Tapestry login details please contact a member of Nursery staff.
In Nursery class we have been learning the names of the letters of the alphabet along with the sounds that they make. Our focus this half term is to make words with a specific group of letters. The letters are; s, a, t, p, i and n these are the first phonic sounds that the children learn. Could you please help your child to learn the letter names, sounds and words in their envelope? Each week your child will bring home a new set of words.
Thank you Mrs. Tweedie, Miss Tomlinson and Mrs. Poole.
Since September the Nursery children have been having Hands and Voices lessons taught by Alison Saville every two weeks. Alison teaches the children rhymes, songs, sign language and actions, which have helped the children with their language and communication. The children enjoy working with Alison and join in with all her activities. Can you please encourage the children to carry on practising the rhymes at home.
We would like to thank everyone who attended the Macmillian Coffee afternoon that Nursery Class held this year. Your donations have helped us raise over £180.00 for the Macmillian Charity. Below are some of the photographs taken on the day. The children all enjoyed making the cakes and being part of the event.
Once again thank you from the staff and children in the Nursery and Reception classes.
