Reading at home

In Nursery, we encourage you to share stories with your child everyday. Children can select a story from the class library, we ask that you return the book weekly and select a new book to take home. We also suggest you access the local library where you can enjoy a range of books and stories. 

Tapestry

 

Tapestry is an online learning journal that documents a very special record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years. Using photos, videos and diary entries, Tapestry ‘weaves’ the story of your child and how they are growing and developing. Parents are able to view online their child’s progress and how much fun they’re having,  whilst also uploading their own comments and media.

If you can not access Tapestry please give your child’s class teacher your email address to activate your account.

P.E.

Our P.E. day is Wednesday

Children in Nursery do not need a P.E kit.

Water bottles and snacks

Don't forget to bring a water bottle to school each day - it is important for children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please label bottles with the children's name and refill them each day.

Children are provided each day with fresh fruit, water and bagels.Children are also eligible for free milk, remember to sign up through the office. Bread sticks can be purchased at the start of each half-term (please speak to the school office about this.)

Phonics

 

Alongside our continuing work in Phase One phonics, we will be introducing the children to Read, Write, Inc Phonics and Set One letter sounds. We will work on one letter per week, learning how to read and write each sound and begin to put the sounds we know together to create words (blending). 

 

Topic

 

Our theme this term is 'We are Lark Hill'. We will spend time getting to know our new children and find out more about their families and interests. Please ensure your child's 'All About Me' form is complete.  The children will get to know their new teachers- look out for our Who's Who board on the website.  We will use a visual time table to support our daily routines and create a Lark Hill map with the children.  To help the children feel secure and settled we will explore feelings and emotions through our mini topic 'Inside Out'. We will use the Oliver Jeffers 'We are Here' book to discuss how we feel.
