NURSERY Summer 1 UPDATE
We hope you have all enjoyed the Easter break and are fit and well, ready for the new term. We are welcoming 2 new starters to our Nursery class this term and look forward to them making new friends and getting to grips with the class routine.
We are hoping for some sunny weather over the next few weeks, so keep an eye on the daily forecast. If it is a particularly sunny day then please send your child with a sun hat.
Just a reminder that uniform should have your child's name written in to avoid any mix up with jumpers, cardigans, hats etc.
We sent out our Knowledge Organiser at the end of last term, to help keep you informed of our Nursery curriculum and topic focus over the coming weeks. You can view this document along with the Nursery curriculum plan on our class page.
Our topic this half term is 'Animals'. We are very excited to be changing our role play area into a pet shop and we will be working on two new displays in the classroom. We are also learning about the life-cycle of the butterfly, and are very lucky to be getting our own caterpillars to care for. We will take lots of photos to keep you posted on their progress.
Miss. Flemming and I are thrilled with how well the children are doing recounting their stories each week. We have several children that are also taking a lilac storybook home. We also have a few children who are now reading the Sound Blending books from the Read-Write- Inc phonics scheme. Please try to listen to your child read as often as possible, and make a note in their reading diary. We will change books each week, usually on a Wednesday. We quite often share our reading books more than once during the week, so please send your child to school every day with their reading bag . Please continue to read lots of stories at home too.
Remember we love to share our successes and will be posting daily on our class Dojo page , so check in regularly to see all the great things we are doing in Nursery. We will post photos and messages regularly and please feel free to message us back with your comments or any questions. You can keep updated on your child's personal progress through the Tapestry app.
Sincere thanks for your support.
Mrs. Suthern and Miss. Flemming

Phonics is the foundation for children beginning their reading journey. In Reception we follow the scheme created by Read Write Inc. Through Read Write Inc children can build on letter formation while learning to read.
Please view the video below to see the Read Write Inc pronunciation of sounds.
Also there is a great website called Phonics Play that helps with lots of phonics learning through games :)

All of the children really enjoy sharing books and retelling stories.
Please read with your child as often as you can to help them become familiar with storytelling and reading. Reception children also have reading records for you to fill in each time you read together.
