Welcome to Nursery
We will be going to be visiting the wooded area on a Wednesday afternoon 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 :)
Around the World
This half term, we will be thinking about the transport we have taken to go on holiday, we will use maps to consider where we would like to visit next. What should we pack? We will draw and write about imaginary journeys and make predictions about how many vehicles we will find around school. As part of our music work, we will accompany stories and songs about transport with music and movement. How far can inflated balloons travel? We will play with them to find out. In our science lessons, we will learn about floating and sinking by building miniature boats and find out about friction by rolling cars down ramps. We will also talk with a crossing supervisor about road safety, learn about high-visibility clothing and design an incredible imaginary vehicle using a computer program.
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.
