Welcome back, we hope you had a restful holiday, the children are really settled in the nursery now and we are looking forward to an exciting and productive Summer Term.
We are going to base our learning on books and nursery rhymes. The books will be Hungry Caterpillar; Bad Tempered Ladybird, and the second half term Avocado Baby, and a variety of Nursery Rhymes.
Can we please have family photographs for our display board? Please check bags for nappies and wipes. We need a spare set of clothes for your child. Please name all coats and wellingtons, and please put a label on buggies so that the staff know whose buggy is whose.
Parent Consultations for transition to Little Jewels will be confirmed later in the term. This term we will be trialling a maths library. To make this successful we need parent volunteers and will hopefully be able to extend the library to the whole of the nursery.
Our books this term will be Jack and the Beanstalk. We will be learning about non-fiction books to link with the visit from the farm. The second half term we will look at a variety of traditional tales` then ‘Changes’, by Anthony Browne and Starting School, Charlie and Lola to link with the children moving on to Reception.
