Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you had a lovely Easter Break and are ready for an exciting summer term.
Our new topic for the first half of term is going to be ‘Fantasy’ and we will be reading a fun selection of stories about superheroes, aliens, witches and make-believe beasts.
Stories such as ‘Nat Fantastic’ and ‘Charlie’s Superhero Underpants’ will be used to support children’s understanding of helping others and learning about how we are all unique, with different strengths and qualities. We will relate this to real-life superheroes and children will have the opportunity to think about who their heroes are.
Other fantasy stories such as ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ will help children extend their vocabulary and their imagination in role play situations.
In Maths we will be continuing to developing mathematical language to describe 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We will also continue children’s number recognition and matching the correct numerals to quantities.
We are going to continue learning about alliteration and rhyme and introduce letter sounds through the use of games such as ‘eye spy’ and ‘silly soup’. Children will continue to practice writing the letters in their names. We will be planning a Nursery school trip for later in the summer term and will provide more details of this closer to the time. We will also be continuing Family Fridays on a fortnightly basis for each Nursery session. Thank you for your continued support.
The Nursery Team.
