Welcome to our Nursery class page

 

Our new topic for this half term is

Nursery Rhymes

 

Row, Row, Row Your Boat.....

That's what we will be doing in the first week - as well as designing boats and experimenting with materials to see if they float or sink, are they waterproof? Let's find out.

As we move through the half term we will be singing together and creating our own versions of:

Hickory Dickory Dock

5 Little Speckled Frogs

Mary, Mary Quite Contrary

5 Currant Buns

10 Teddies Jumping On The Bed

Incy Wincy Spider

You could practice these rhymes and others at home!

Mr Tumble sings lots of rhymes we all know and some you might not have heard before - find him on the C Beebies website and get singing!

 

As always the children's interests and ideas will also form part of the learning.

 The Nursery curriculum newsletter will provide further information about this half term's topic and ideas for how to help your child at home.

 

 

PSHE - Our Jigsaw focus for this half term is 'Relationships'

Jigsaw Jenie will be sharing stories about families and friendships,

We will be sharing photos of our families and talking about the things we do when we are with our friends and members of our families.

                             

We tested our boats to find out if they floated!

Some of last term's activities. Pancakes for Shrove Tuesday, World Book Day and constructing castles!

Winter walks

Chinese New Year was great fun!

Remember.....It's good to keep talking - 

Set aside that 5 minutes a day to share a rhyme or a story book or just

simply have a chat... because it's important to talk and life has changed

over the last 18 months for everyone.

Put technology to one side for a while and encourage a 2-way conversation

with your child about anything they are interested in or

might want to talk about. Young children need to constantly hear conversations and engage in them to be able to learn how to speak to others confidently

and extend their vocabulary.

Dental Hygiene

In the EYFS, we teach about dental hygiene. The children learn the value of good brushing and how to use toothpaste to fight tooth decay. The Colgate Tooth Defenders help us to learn how to keep ourselves healthy and even give us our own toothbrush and toothpaste to take home!

The Tooth Defenders would like us to complete our brushing chart to make sure that we keep our teeth and gums healthy.

If you need any support for your child or any tips on keeping teeth clean, please see our documents below to help you. Also start taking your child to the dentist….it is never too early to start!

Here is a really useful document - A parents guide to What to expect in the EYFS (Early years foundation stage)
