Topic: Emma’s Lamb
Nursery Newsletter : 20/04/2018
Phonemes learnt so far: s, a, t, p, i, n
Phoneme of the Week (m)
Next week will be the letter ‘m’. All children are invited to bring in an object beginning with this letter to share in our ‘Sound Basket’ circle time. This will take place every Monday and will form a regular part of our weekly timetable. Please place items in our ‘Sound Basket’ which will be placed next to the self-registration name cards at the door.
Physical Development (P.E)
From the week commencing 24/04/18 nursery will be having a weekly games session on the school field. For the activity, please could the children come to nursery already dressed in their P.E kit. Preferably black shorts or cycling shorts, a white t-shirt or polo shirt and plimsolls would be the ideal, to match the P.E uniform in main school. Morning nursery will have their session every Tuesday morning and the afternoon children will have their session every Wednesday afternoon. Full time children are welcome to wear their P.E kit on both days of the week, as they will be joining in both sessions.
This week we read a book called, ‘Emma’s Lamb’ by Kim Lewis. We talked about the different emotions that evolved as the story progressed. We talked about being lonely, sad, happy, excited and thankful.
Expressive Arts and Design
We experimented with bubble printing and used the prints to make lamb collages.
We have been thinking about number values and exploring different ways of representing numbers. We filled latex gloves with sand and used them to practise counting using our fingers. Other counting apparatus used include numicon, cubes and our mirror numerals.
Understanding of the World
We have been bug hunting in the garden and have been comparing different creatures in terms of their features and characteristics.
Suggestions for Home
Enjoy the beautiful weather and try to visit a park. Can you show us your climbing skills on different structures and frames? Tapestry posts would be a great way to share these experiences.
What I need at nursery daily:
- Named wellies
- A waterproof coat
- Book bag
- Home-school book
- Spare clothes bag (this does not need to be nursery uniform)
- During the summer months please ensure that your child is wearing a high factor of sunscreen (SPF50 if possible) . This should be applied before nursery.
Book bags should be stored in the labelled boxes (Part-time girls, part-time boys, full-time children). Please ask a member of staff if you are unsure of where to locate. Please feel free to personalise book bags with familiar key rings or add stickers to their name label. This helps to ensure that they go home with the correct owner at the end of the session.
Snack will be £3.00 this half-term. Alternatively, it can be paid weekly at 50p per week. A purple folder is kept on the snack table, along with a tick list and a pot for you to post your money. Please indicate to show that you have made a payment.
Show and Tell every Friday- Please name your items and avoid sending in valuable toys. Topic related objects/photographs are much more interesting to share. A ‘Show and Tell’ box will be placed near the door for you to store your items until circle time.
