Welcome to Nursery
Ms Dunn HLTA
This half term, we’ll play imaginatively with a model castle and small world characters. We’ll look at different character types, and decide whether our favourite characters are ‘goodies’ or ‘baddies’! Using different materials and shapes, we’ll build castles and bridges. We’ll read lots of stories and look at the ingredients that go into a fantastic fairy tale. We’ll be brave explorers and hunt for missing items from fairy tales. Reading The Elves and the Shoemaker will encourage us to be busy elves and decorate shoes in our workshop. Contemporary versions of fairy tales will inspire us to write stories, and we’ll create story maps to retell familiar tales. Our mathematical skills will help us to count the buttons on gingerbread men, and estimate how many beans Jack has got! After reading The Enormous Turnip, we’ll plant seeds and learn how to care for them. We’ll also test the right materials to make a bed for a princess, and houses for the Three Little Pigs.
Please see the section on CHAT Books for our learning each week.
We will be going to be visiting the wooded area on a Wednesday afternoon this half term.
Please can you bring your child into Nursery in a set of old clothes and shoes they wear for Nursery. We will change children into their wellies before we go. If your child is wearing waterproofs over their clothes, please name these and hang them on your child’s peg. Please also hang the clothes your child will be changed back into on their peg in a carrier bag. We will put the muddy clothes back into the carrier bag for your child to take home.
Children will be able to jump in muddy puddles and may get dirty, so please send them in with an old coat!
We hope the children will have as much fun as the adults :)
