Spring Term 2019

Welcome back and a very happy new year to all our Nursery children and their grown-ups. We hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

This term we continue to follow the children’s interests to help us plan our activities. We will also be planning activities related to upcoming special occasions such as Valentines Day, Friendship week, Easter and Red Nose day. This term we will be using monies raised from the Christmas performances and photographs to do cooking and baking, and growing, as well as buying sensory resources for messy play. Keep an eye out for future website posts about what we have been doing!

Last half term we introduced Plan, Do, Review. We started off using physical props from each of the classroom areas, this was used as a talking point. We have noticed a massive difference in the children’s confidence in speaking and it has encouraged them to think carefully about where they are going to work and what they are going to do. This term we will be introducing visual symbols for the classroom areas. This will help develop children’s recall to talk about what they did and relive past events. If you would like further information about this and its importance, please keep an eye out for our Plan, Do, Review Stay and Play session (letters to go out this term) 

We are also planning our annual Nursery trip. Please keep an eye out for a letter this half term with more information.

Please also check the nursery noticeboard for shared story and special book times for this term. Due to the popularity of the last stay and play session we will be offering 4 more this term. We hope you can join us!

Thank you for your continued support
