Nursery Lambs

 Learning in Nursery Lambs for Autumn Term 

Topics will change on a regular basis. The setting will reflect these topics. We will write weekly updates on the boards next to the entrance. We will start the term with the topic of Journeys (including transport) and Festivals.

    • Personal, Social and Emotional Development: there will be emphasis on settling in and developing confidence and understanding the boundaries of the setting , including developing sharing and turn- taking skills.
    • Communication & Language: In Nursery we focus a lot on speaking and listening skills. To support your children at home we will be sending home Firm Foundations Packs which support early Literacy skills. These will come home on a FRIDAY and must be returned by a WEDNESDAY.  Please do let us know if there is anything missing from the pack. Thank you.
    • Maths: In Nursery we will focus on the numbers from zero to ten. To support your children at home, count everything! E.g. Pegging out the socks, counting raisins, counting stairs etc. You can also have fun looking at and talking about numerals that you see in the environment, such as on cereal boxes, buses and front doors.  
    • Literacy : Children will be given the opportunity to change their library book each day. We hope that you enjoy reading daily with your child to support their literacy development. You can encourage your child to talk about the pictures, join in with words and phrases in the story, make predictions about what might happen next and to talk about the parts of the story they most enjoyed.  Children will take part in interactive and fun phonic sessions each week. We will focus on tuning into environmental and instrumental sounds and rhythm and rhyme.  

    P.E : we will be focus  on  getting changed with increasing independence, spatial awareness and body shapes on floor and apparatus.

 Weekly Routines

    • Show & Tell Bags – Each week different children are sent home with a Show and Tell Bag.  Please return the bag with something in that your child would like to show the class/talk about. The bag needs to come back by Friday so that it can be sent out again. Thank you.
