Summer 2 2022! 

Welcome back to the final and most fun term of the school year.  We have lots of exciting things planned for the children this half-term. 

Our topic this half term is Traditional Tales and Great Stories! The children will reading well-loved tales such as The Three Little Pigs and The Gingerbread Man.  Children already know these stories well and we will now be encouraging the children to become more expressive with their story telling by adding music with instruments and acting out scenes from the stories with their friends.  We will also be reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and we are expecting some real caterpillars in nursery this half term.  It’s such a wonder for the children to see the caterpillars transform into butterflies before their eyes.    

We will continue to support the children daily to write their names in our key worker groups and will be assisting them to develop their independent name writing. 

For Maths Mastery, nursery will be consolidating their learning of numbers of 1-5 and will continue to learn about positional language, numerical patterns and shapes. 

We will continue to send out a different nursery rhyme for the children to learn every week.   

The children starting Reception in September have now begun the formal learning of phonics using the Read, Write, Inc. scheme which is taught throughout the school and I must say, they are doing amazing!  The children are beginning to orally blend sounds and I’m confident by the end of the summer term, some children will be beginning to write CVC’s (three letter words).   

If your child is starting Reception in September, more information will be given soon regarding start dates, times and transitions.  As our children already access the Reception classroom and share the same outdoor space and toilets as Reception, we’re confident that the children will be ready and excited to move onto their new class in September. 

We will continue to send out a different nursery rhyme for the children to learn every week.   

Our next intake of nursery children will be in September 2022.  If you know of a child requiring a place, please advise their parents to obtain a form from our office and return asap.

As always, thank you for your continued support and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like to speak about your child
