Through play, our children explore and develop learning experiences, which help them make sense of the world around them. They have the opportunity to think creatively alongside others as well as on their own. They communicate with others as they investigate and solve problems. We deliver opportunities for exploration of all 7 areas of learning through purposeful play, with a balance of adult-led, adult-initiated and child-initiated activities. This is supported by offering a range of real life experiences through educational visits and visitors in school.
Reading – You will be invited to take a reading book home from the nursery library. Ask your child questions, point out the words and talk about what is happening in the pictures. This should be done for 5 minutes every day.
Oracy– Each week you will receive a text message containing the weekly ‘BIG Question’. Please discuss the question with your child and share ideas.
Half-termly mini project
At the end of each term, your child will be asked to complete a mini project to support them with their learning next half-term. Please click on the link below to see your child’s half-termly project. They can return their project on the first day back at school.
In nursery we have been learning about the celebration Halloween. We made monsters out of playdough, used our senses to explore pumpkins and made our own spells. We also enjoyed looking for shadows in our outdoor area. We talked about how and why not everyone celebrates Halloween.
In nursery we have been learning about Bonfire Night. We watched a video about what happens on Bonfire Night. In provision we created our own Bonfire and represented fireworks in a range of different ways.
In the nursery children have been talking about keeping their teeth healthy. The nursery children know that we need to brush our teeth twice a day. They know that we need a toothbrush and toothpaste to keep our teeth clean. They sang a rhyme to help them to remember how to brush their teeth.
