Welcome to Nursery

Miss Martin, Mrs McArdell and Mrs Bunn welcome you to Nursery!

Our Nursery project for this term is ‘The Great Outdoors’

             

During our project the children will be given the opportunity to choose what they would like to learn and how they would like to develop their project. We will share some of the exciting things we learn with you as our project develops through regular class updates (see below). Throughout our project the children will be developing as:

  • ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives
  • enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work
  • ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world
  • healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

If you would like to get involved in our project and have expertise in any aspect of our project that you would like to bring into school, please contact the school office.

Literacy

 

This term our learning will be based around the books ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ and ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.  We will be going on our bear hunt and retelling the story by mark making, as well as using a Beebot which we will navigate through the story.

We are very lucky because we will have our own caterpillars in nursery which we will be observing daily.  We will closely watch each stage as they turn into butterflies.  We will carefully set them all free as soon as they emerge as butterflies.

This term we will begin to introduce the single phonic sounds.  Please support their learning at home by listening to phonic sounds songs and identifying initial sounds of objects to/with the children.  Please continue to share books with the children, promoting the correct way to hold books and to turn the pages.

All the children worked really hard last term starting to write their first names using the correct letter formation, we will be building on this this term and be encouraging the children to write their first names independently at all opportunities.

Numeracy

We will continue to sing number rhymes and songs, counting forwards and backwards and recognising numbers all around us. We will begin to recognise numbers 0-10 and to count objects both in the nursery and outside in our school grounds.

This term we will begin to write numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 correctly.  Please support your child by encouraging them to have a go at writing these numbers in the sand, in water and using chunky chalks/paint to write them on the floor/giant sheets of paper.

The children will begin to recognise and use coins (1p, 2p, 5p, 10p) to pay for items during maths activities and during their play activities.

Within our topic of “The Great Outdoors”, we will be developing our knowledge of numbers by counting the number of spots on ladybirds, grouping bears and using finger painting to create a caterpillars body.

We will also be looking at measurement when we compare the different length of worms, as well as continuing to record data when we use tally charts and pictograms to identify what bears we have seen when out hunting!
