Welcome to Nursery

This half term our topic is “Dinosaurs”.  So far, the children have been exploring frozen dinosaur eggs, playing with dinosaur small world and played the game “what’s the time Mr Dinosaur?”  The children have been very creative; making paper plate dinosaurs and air drying clay fossils.

The children have been taking part in daily “letters and sounds” activities.  These help build listening and attention skills which will be beneficial for phonics learning when they start Reception.  A lot of maths is built into our daily routine, children have also taken part in focussed activities and these have been met with plenty of enthusiasm. 

Many parents ask how they can support their child at home, some ideas include:

  • Reading a variety of books
  • Pointing out print in the environment, for example; CO-OP sign, numbers on houses and buses, etc.
  • Counting anything and everything!
  • Independence in dressing, putting on coats and shoes
  • Using mark making tools and scissors
