Next half term our topic is 'Let's celebrate'. If your family is celebrating something special that you would like to share with the class, please let Mrs Pring or Mrs Baker know. If you or a family member would be happy to read a story or talk about celebrations happening in your family then we would love to have you come in to do this!
What are we learning in Nursery?
Our topic this half term is 'All About Me'.
In the next few weeks we will be learning about autumn and the changes we can see around us.
This week we will be reading poems about our body and movement. We will be drawing around our body and labelling our arms, legs, head etc and completing different jigsaw puzzles.
In phonics we will be following the 'Letters and Sounds' scheme of work. We will be continuing 'Phase 1 Aspect 2 - Musical Sounds'. This week we will be listening carefully to different musical instruments and playing a range of instruments and discussing the different sounds we can hear. Our teachers will hide instruments behind a screen and then play one and we need to guess which one it is!
If you would like to do some listening activities at home you can download the activity sheet below which has some brilliant ideas!

The Nursery Day
In Wren class we have lots of fun learning through play using a wide range of toys and equipment. Children are encouraged to be creative in the craft and construction areas where they can select their own resources. There is a role play area both inside and outside for the children to explore. There is always access to sand, water and play dough to help develop understanding of textures and capacity, while also developing fine motor skills.
Our nursery has daily access to a lovely outside space where the children can focus on gardening skills and develop their understanding of living things. There is also a larger outside space for riding our bikes and scooters, a sand kitchen for getting messy, a water trail and a climbing frame.
We follow the interests of all the children when planning our activities. Every day our children have 2 small group sessions. The first is a 'Phase 1' phonics sessions and the second is a small group activity of Maths, Art, Communication and Language or Topic.
