Welcome to our page, where you will get to know all about the exciting things we get up to in our class.
Nursery had lots of fun on pancake day! We made the batter together and each child then had a pancake, chose their toppings and tasted it. We counted out how many berries we put onto our pancakes and even made faces with them! We also used lots of lovely language when describing what our pancakes tasted like. Here are some of the words we used:
tangy delicious tasty disgusting yummy sour sticky
Our Visit to Cannock Chase
We have throughly enjoyed our trip to the woods! The trees were so tall and there was so much to see and do! We played on the park, we had a picnic in a warm barn, found the Gruffalo and someone else really special too! (Father Christmas!) We were so well behaved and enjoyed every moment - so much so we didn't even feel the cold!
This half term our topic is 'Growing'. We will be looking at things that grow and change - plants, caterpillars, chicks and ourselves! We will be reading lots of growing stories and encourage you to ask your child what their favourite story is and discuss why they like it. Look how much our class caterpillars have grown!
Remember if there is something in particular that your child is interested in please let us know and we can adapt our planning and environment to suit both their interests and next steps.
In Nursery we try to go outside every day. As it is getting colder we will spend time outside exploring the changes in the weather, so please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing and footwear for winter weather (thick coat, gloves, hat, scarf).
Things to do at home
Please read with me every day. Reading stories to me will create a love of reading that is so important as I get older.
I will bring a library book home each day. I can change this as often as I would like, and you can help me to do this. Or the grown-ups in school will help me. Please write in my diary every time I read even if it is a book from home.
Soon, I will also bring home a school reading book. At first, this will have no words in, as I just need to know how to turn the pages and talk about what I can see in the pictures. I can make up a story or you can help me to ‘read’ what is happening.
With a little help from an adult I could carry on learning at home using these website links:
