This half term we will be enjoying learning about the seaside through a variety of stories, poems and experiences. We will be reading books such as "Sharing a Shell", "Olly the Octopus" and myths and legends about the sea (mermaids and pirates!).
Through this topic we will be:
Alongside these the children will be blending and segmenting words, exploring letters and sounds and recording their work through a range of mark making experiences. They will be looking at adding one more and early subtraction skills in their mathematical work. We are also looking forward to the possible visit from a local lifeguard!
Welcome back to a new half term! We also have a new theme called Glow and Glitter. Our engage day will be on Wednesday the 5th of November full of Bonfire Night activities. The children will be making breadstick sparklers, shape rocket pictures, blow painting fireworks, a firework display class collage and also take part in an explosive Write Dance activity. See below for some photos and videos.
This theme will see us learning about some celebrations such as Diwali and Christmas, identifying and exploring light sources and shadows, sorting shiny and not shiny materials, playing and experimenting with ice and the good old-fashioned run up to Christmas with lots of practising for our Christmas Concert!
It 's been a pleasure to see the children increase in confidence and settle so well into nursery life and it was great to see so many families attend our open day, see photos below. Now winter is fast approaching please ensure your child always comes to school with a warm coat and suitable clothing to keep them warm at play and lunchtime. Thank you.
