Welcome to the Nursery! (Spring Term 1)

Happy New Year!

We hope you had a lovely holiday time and are looking forward to the next term we (optimistically) call Spring Term.

Although we do not formally teach phonics, it is a part of our everyday activities. We focus on Phase 1 of Letters and Sounds :- listening, rhyming, segmenting/blending (c-a-t),alliteration (big bear, clumsy camel) – generally having fun with language. We aim to send home activities which will encourage your child and hopefully give you an insight to what happens during your child’s day. These are not meant to be a chore – but a fun way to learn.

We shall also continue to send home a sharing book which we will change weekly. Again, we hope these will help encourage your child to want to learn to read and are not really to be seen as something to be “done”.

Our main Learning Challenges will focus around Colours and Sounds – how colours make us feel and what makes a sound. Some of the stories we shall be using will be: Mixed up Chameleon, Elmer, Farmyard HullaBalloo.

As ever, we shall be free-flowing into the outdoor area throughout the day so please can you ensure your child is appropriately clothed and spare clothes would be a huge help.
