Welcome to Nursery – Ladybirds class
This term our topic is called, Under the Sea! We will be learning about what we see and hear under and on the sea (maybe even some Pirates!) and how to care for our oceans. We will continue our letters and sounds activities focusing on rhythm and rhyme, voice sounds and oral segmenting and blending. In maths will be learning all about the numbers 4 and 5, revisiting 1,2,3. We will also be learning about measurements – comparing the weight and length of things. In PSED, our focus for the term is Changing Me. We will be talking about ourselves, our families and our new class (if we are moving on!).
Talking, understanding others and knowing what to say are really important skills. They help children make friends, learn and enjoy life to the full. See below for ways to support your child’s TALK.
We are so excited to be working in the Nursery class and look forward to learning through play using our amazing inside and outside environment.
Other adults you will meet are: Miss Cook – drama teacher and Mrs Wells PPA cover
Wednesday – Nursery Library day in class. Please bring a book bag and we will help your child choose a book to bring home to read and share! Find somewhere quiet, talk about the pictures, ask questions to develop comprehension e.g. Why did Goldilocks go into the house? or I wonder why……..
Tuesday and Thursday are Forest school sessions so please provide sensible clothing for the environment and weather e.g. trousers, labelled wellington boots and waterproofs or sun hat/sun cream. (No open shoes allowed to protect their feet.)
The children love to get wet and muddy in their play so please leave a bag of labelled and spare clothes on their peg. If your child is using nappies then please supply nappies and wipes in a labelled bag on their peg too.
It has been discovered that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they’re four years old, they’re usually among the best readers by the time they’re eight. Go to the BBC website link below to listen to and learn the most popular rhymes we sing at school –

Here is a great way for your child to put their coat on independently. There do need to know how where the hood is!
