This half term in Nursery we will be thinking about going 'Out and About.'
Do you know where this picture was taken?
We will be looking at lots of different images of our local area, we will investigate 'Google Earth' and try to recognise different places we may have been.
Together we will compare places such as the park, the countryside, the town and the seaside.
We will also explore road and cycle safety.
Developing skills through team games, thinking about fairness and working collaboratively across all areas of the curriculum are also packed into this half term.
Mrs Dennis, Mrs Goddard and Miss Lutwyche are looking forward to finding out what the children enjoy about their local area, so lets get busy!
Our PSHE Jigsaw focus this half term is 'Relationships'
We have asked the children to send in a photo of their family 'out and about' during the Easter holidays. We can't wait to see where everyone has been, Jigsaw Jenie thinks there might be pictures of the park or the library.
Everyone will have different stories to talk about.
Jigsaw Jenie has some super story books to share with the children that raise awareness of feelings, friendships and belonging.
Jigsaw Jenie has remembered to have a healthy breakfast before Nursery.
There is a wonderful website below that is useful for your child and for you as a parent. It has games and information about feelings, health, illnesses and sections on body image, mental health and much more. There is also a section for you, the parent, to refer to for information on the school nurse and it shows local Solihull support services.

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.
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.

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!
