Muddy Monday

We will be going to be visiting the wooded area on a Monday this half term.

Please can you bring your child into Nursery in a set of old clothes and shoes they wear for Nursery. We will change children into their wellies before we go. If your child is wearing waterproofs over their clothes, please name these and hang them on your child’s peg. Please also hang the clothes your child will be changed back into on their peg in a carrier bag. We will put the muddy clothes back into the carrier bag for your child to take home.

Children will be able to jump in muddy puddles and may get dirty, so please send them in with an old coat!

We hope the children will have as much fun as the adults :)

Our Learning This Term

Why do squirrels hide their nuts?

This half term, we’ll visit a woodland to hunt for autumnal treasures. Back in the classroom, we’ll watch what happens when frozen objects melt. Getting creative, we’ll press leaves into clay to make beautiful impressions, and we’ll trace the patterns on leaves. Things could get messy in our mud kitchen when we use different tools to dig, mix and pour. We’ll also enjoy making marks in the mud. Our maths skills will help us to count conkers, and we’ll use them to make different numbers. Using sticks, we’ll explore lengths and use the language of size. It will be lovely to curl up in the reading corner to enjoy autumnal stories and poetry.

Letters and Sounds

How to say the phonemes

Here you will find a video to help support your children at home in practising the Phase 2 and Phase 3 phonic sounds.  Please practise the single letters first, during the summer term some children in nursery will learn how two or even three letters combined can make one new sound.
