Welcome To Nursery September 2021
Welcome to the Nursery Class Page!
Welcome to the new school year. I met many of you during our door step visits, it was lovely finding out all about you. We have been very busy making name cards and pictures as well as displaying photographs of you from our visits to your house and when you came to visit us. We are looking forward to finding out more about you in the year ahead. It has been lovely to welcome back so many of our January intake, they have been great helping our new children to settle.
Our first topic is ‘Nursery Rhymes!’ During this topic, we will be learning about what your children are good at, how they learn and what their favourite Nursery Rhymes are. To help us get to know your children, we will be asking them to do specific tasks e.g. colouring a picture, where we will look at their pencil control and grip of a pencil or asking… Can you count my cubes? What shape is the clock? Or even… let’s jump as high as we can as well as many more.
We will also be looking closely at our feelings and reading the story: ‘The Colour Monster’ by Anna Llenas.
The children will enjoy making story stones, pictures, coloured jars and even exploring how the Colour Monster felt when he went to school in the second book in ‘The Colour Monster Series.’
Things that you can do at home:
- Practise writing your child’s name with them, making sure they hold the pencil correctly.
- Ensure that they are able to recognise their name when they see it.
- Pointing out letters in their name in the environment – look, there is the letter at the start of your name!
- Counting cars that you pass on your way to school.
- Looking for numbers in the environment: on doors, car registrations, on lamp posts, in the shop etc.
- Counting as you go up the stairs to bed.
- Singing Nursery Rhymes before bed – I will be sending a list home of some of the ones we are covering at Nursery.
We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead and getting to know your children. Thank you for all your support.
