Our topic is 'Transport'. If you have any transport books or games at home that your child would like to bring in to share with the class please let Mrs Pring or Mrs Baker know.
Our first 'Parent in Partnership' session is on Monday 4th March at 9am in the hall. We look forward to seeing you there to play some exciting 'Number Fun' games and activities with your child!
What are we learning in Nursery?
Our topic this half term is 'Transport'.
We are enjoying a range of fiction books including 'Cool cars' 'Oi get off my train' and 'Rosie's walk'. We are using different modes of transport as our inspiration for maths and have been sorting objects by land, air or sea, making cars tracks from 2D shapes and comparing how many cars vs how many trains we have.
In phonics we will be following the 'Letters and Sounds' scheme of work. We will be continuing 'Phase 1 Aspect 7 - 'Blending and Segmenting'. We have been playing 'Robot talk' where we pretend to be a robot and sound out words using our robot arms, cross the river where we have a pretend river and only cross if we can sound out the words and I spy where we listen carefully to what has been sounded out 'I spy with my little eye a c-a-t'.
If you would like to do some blending and segmenting activities at home you can download the activity sheet below which has some brilliant ideas!
What we will learn this term?
We will add curriculum planning for each half term to help you understand what your child will be learning in school. Please click the icon to download the Spring 2 ('Transport') 2019 curriculum map.
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.
