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

A gentle reminder that our school P.E. kit is a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps or trainers for outdoor sports, without visible branding. 

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 and refill them each day.

Children are welcome to bring a healthy snack such as fruit and vegetables to school each day for snack time, but are also offered a piece of fruit from each day. Bread sticks and milk can be purchased at the start of each half-term (please speak to the school office about this.

Mathematics 

 

As part of our work on traditional tales we will be looking closely at the number 3. We will also be working on some early concepts such as small, medium and large as well as capacity in real life concepts such as making gingerbread men. 

Literacy

 

There will be lots of opportunities for independent mark making such as designing delicious gingerbread men, writing recipes and creating our own story maps. 

 

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 'Once upon a time'. We will learn lots of new vocabulary as we look at traditional tales such as The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Gingerbread Man. We will use this new vocabulary to speak in short and meaningful sentenes. We will act out the stories using puppets and props and learn repeated refrains from the stories.
