The staff who support the children's learning in nursery are:
Mrs Palmer, Mrs Pirie, Mrs Taylor and Miss Palmer.
Our lunchtime staff members are Mrs Sproson and Mrs Miah.
Our books for the second half of the Autumn Term will be: The Lion Inside by Rachel Bright
to promote confidence and self esteem. The Wonkey Donkey by Craig Smith, focusing on rhyming words and songs. One Night on Earth by Leanne Kilpatrick, looking at the traditional story of Christmas through rhyme. The Dinosaur that pooped Christmas by Tom Fletcher, investigating dinosaurs and how to express gratitude.
The children will access small group activities in Phase 1 phonics which is made up of seven areas. These are Rhythm and Rhyme, Environmental Sounds, Instrumental Sounds, Alliteration, Voice Sounds, Body Percussion and Oral Blending and Segmenting. We will be focusing on rhyming words and segmenting and blending activities in order to get ready for FS2. We will be introducing Phase 2 phonics with letter names and sounds and beginning to write simple words and phrases.
Our EYFS provision will develop confidence and competence in learning and using key skills. This includes counting, sorting, matching, seeking patterns, making connections, recognising relationships and working with numbers, shapes, space and measure.
During the year we will send homework home on a Monday to be completed by the Friday. The work will be sent home in a homework book, please return it to school in the book bag provided by school. Please continue to share extra curriculum activities and family fun to Tapestry, we love reading about your child's adventures.
Every morning we will encourage parents/carers to enter nursery with your child to help them find their coat pegs, collect items from their trays from the previous day and spend a few minutes settling the children and speaking to staff if you need to.
Our PE slot is Monday mornings and this will commence in January.
Can we remind ALL parents/carers that children need to come to school in their PE kit and bring their school uniform with them.
P.E kit (everything named please)
black shorts/jogging botttoms
white or yellow tee shirt
tracksuit (for outdoor lessons)
The book bag which has been provided by the school, must come into school EVERYDAY please
to ensure information reaches you.
ALL children will need appropriate clothing in their bags to make sure they are warm and happy when learning outdoors, especially on Welly Wednesday, when they will need to come in their wellies/boots.
Thank you for your support and enthusiasm to help your child with their learning. It is appreciated.
