Our topic is 'Animal Antics'.
Our role play area is a pet shop! If you have a pet that you would be willing to bring into school please let Mrs Pring or Mrs Baker know so we can write a risk assessment and organise the visit.
Our next 'Parent in Partnership' session is on Monday 17th June in the hall. We look forward to seeing you there to play some exciting 'Shape' games and activities with your child!
What are we learning in Nursery?
Our topic this half term is 'Amazing Animals'
We are enjoying a range of fiction books including 'The Secret Garden' 'Rumble in the Jungle', 'Handa's Surprise' and 'Dear Zoo'. We are looking at the world around us and discussing what life we can see!
In phonics we will be following the 'Letters and Sounds' scheme of work. We will be starting Phase 2. In this phase we will introduce recap the sounds A-Z and then play some blending games from Phase 1 aspect 7 'Oral blending and segmenting'.

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.
