Welcome to Term 2

Congratulations on an amazing first term at Nursery to all of our families.

Welcome back to Term 2, and what a busy one it will be.  Our project is called ‘Have you seen my snowman?’ It is based on the seasons and weather.  We will continue to look at the changes around us as Autumn draws to a close and Winter sets in.  We will be playing with ice and exploring melting and freezing and using our senses to explore the world around us.  We’ll be reading lots of stories based on snowy animals and we’ll be learning about the types of animals that live in the Arctic.  In phonics we’ll continue to play lots of listening games and learn to listen for sounds in words.  In maths we’ll be counting and recognising numbers around us.  We’ll be practising recognising our names and making marks.

We will be very busy celebrating Christmas at the Nursery and look forward to welcoming you to our Christmas show which will involve lots of singing.  Please look out for information in November about costumes and dates.

 

Some things to remember:

Don’t forget to label all of your child’s bits and bobs.

We’ll be using the outdoor environment whatever the weather! Please provide appropriate clothing.

If you need to speak to a member of school staff please wait at the beginning/end of the day.
