Welcome to the Summer Term.



What an exciting term this is! Our new topic for IPC is Patterns. The children  are preparing for their very first class assembly on  the 21st June and we are also  looking forward to our school trip to Odds Farm  on July 13th.

We have also  grown in size and in confidence and have made friends.

Please continue to support our Home Reading Scheme by reading to your child as often as you can. Please take time to review our curriculum information a copy of which is attached. You can also follow our weekly planning activities on the Parents Information board in the nursery lobby.If you have some spare time and would like to come in and support a group with reading or arts and crafts please come in and see me.  WATCH THIS SPACE FOR OUR PHOTOS ON PATTERNS.



 Look we are making some repeating patterns.





     We had World Book Day with all the children dressing up as a book character and sharing stories. It was great fun to see the children so involved and experiencing the joy of listening to and reading books. The nursery children listened to stories written by the Year 5 class. Have a look at the photos and see for yourself the fun they experienced.

WORLD BOOK DAY: Buddy Reading with Year 5. They wrote their own version of The Three Little Pigs to share with us!

We are improving in all areas of the curriculum. Personal and Social ,Construction, Literacy, Understanding of the world and Physical development.

Our RE topic for this spring term is Being a Sacramental People.

 Learning Opportunities include:

  -Learning to explore the presence of God in the world; in people and the rituals of Church.

  -Coming to know that Jesus helps us to choose the good.

  - Experiencing Liturgical celebrations in a variety of simple settings.

  - Experiencing and recognise prayer is talking and listening to God.

  - Learning to say 'sorry'

 Our role play this term is focused on healthy eating and coincided with our 'Fun Fit Friday' on the first day back at the beginning of the spring term. The children learnt about foods that are healthy for their bodies and we hope this will help them to make healthy choices when it comes to diet and nutrition.

Our new IPC topic is 'Changes'.

The children are investigating what changes are occurring when a block of ice brought in by the class teacher is left out at room temperature in the classroom.

Fun Fit Friday!!!!!!  We made fruit kebabs. We tasted and felt the texture of some exotic fruits. We played games in the outdoor area and did some keep fit exercises.  We talked about how we felt after exercising and what changes happen to our bodies.
Our personal and social skills are improving. We are happy, relaxed and confident  in the setting talking and sharing stories about home and our community. 
Our writing area.  Our fine motor skills are improving. We are learning to write some numbers.

We love our new outdoor area.

We are developing gross and fine motor skills. Look at us !

We are enjoying our new reading area. Reading can be such fun.
