Welcome to the Nursery Class webpage.
W/C Monday 6th January 2020
Mrs Plimmer and I would like to begin by saying thank you for the lovely gifts you gave to us. We hope that you had a restful time with family and friends over Christmas and New Year.
In Nursery this week we are learning about doctors, nurses and hospitals. We have transformed our home corner into a doctor's surgery and we have been very busy wrapping bandages around cuts, giving medicine and writing prescriptions. We are also learning about the Arctic. We know it is very cold in the Arctic. We have watched a short video and seen what the Arctic looks like and we have seen some of the animals that live there. We have also been reading some facts about the different animals. Did you know that the arctic fox has the warmest fur on the planet? Later in week we will be carrying out some science experiments to find out how blubber keeps arctic animals warm and whether smooth skin or rough skin slides easier on ice.
This half term we are exploring the topics 'People Who Help Us' and 'Magic'. We will be learning about people who help us including doctors, nurses, police officers and firefighters. We will also be exploring lots of magical stories including 'Frozen' and 'Little Rabbit Foo Foo'. The children have shown lots of interest in these types of stories and we will incorporate them into the areas in Nursery and into some of our maths, phonics and writing activities. Please keep an eye out for the weekly updates on this webpage to find out about our fun activties this half term
Please see the E-bag for this half terms learning objectives.
The children have been getting used to using the PC's and smartboard at school and have enjoyed playing on the 'busy things' website. This website is fantastic as it covers many areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage and the children love it! If you would like your little person to access the site whilst at home the login details are:-
Library books will be changed each Monday and Friday.
We really hope you and your little person enjoy reading these books together and that you share many other books at home. Fostering a love of reading at such an early age is so important in developing future literacy skills. If you wish to change your library book at any other time during the week please approach myself or Mrs. Plimmer.
