Nursery Newsletter Spring term 2020
Happy New Year!
We would like to welcome you back to school for our exciting Spring term.
During the Autumn term the children settled in well and started to make super progress. The children performed fantastically in our Christmas Nativity and made us all very proud. We finished off the year with a fantastic pantomime of Sleeping Beauty and we had lots of fun at our Christmas party (We hope Santa is feeling better).
We will be continuing with our daily carpet sessions where we focus on phonics, numbers and shapes, stories, and speaking and listening. It would help with your child’s progress if you would continue to read at home and please make sure that children bring their book bag to school every day.
Below are the topics we are focussing on this term. We also consider the interests of the children and provide activities that further develop these.

Reception Newsletter Spring term 2020
Happy New Year everyone and a very warm welcome back.
Reception had a fantastic Autumn term settling in and delivered some fantastic work. Everyone has made progress within the class which has been wonderful to see.
We have a very busy Spring term coming up.
In Maths we are learning about number recognition, number bonds, 2D and 3D shapes and spatial awareness. We have done brilliantly with our Maths so far and look forward to progressing throughout the term.
In English we are using the story “The Three Billy Goats Gruff”. Throughout English we will be re-telling the story through ‘Talk for Writing’. We will be continuing to develop our letter formation and will be learning to use adjectives (describing words) and nouns (names of things). We will also be writing instructions and lists.
We are continuing with our Phonics every day. It would help with your child’s progress if you would continue to read at home and please remember to bring book bags in to school every day.
We are learning about transport this term in Science and look forward to trying out some great experiments. We also have our wonderful continuous provision areas where children can build on their communication and language, social development and understanding the world.
We are really excited for the term and look forward to making even more progress.

Look at how well our Nursery children are doing completing their challenges!
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.
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.
