Spring Term 2

This term’s theme

This term the children will be focussing on the topic of Animals. This term the children will learn about farm animals and animals that are kept as pets, and talk about their similarities and differences. They will find out which animals make good house pets and how to look after them.

 

Reminders

  • Please can all children have spare clothes to put in a bag on their peg.
  • Please name all jumpers, coats and drink bottles.
  • Don’t forget your child can choose a book to go home with them every day. Please come and have a look at the selection.

Show and Tell

This term we will be starting Show and Tell. Show and Tell will now be taking place every Thursday morning. We will choose three children (in advance) a week to show us something of their choice. Please help your child to choose an appropriate item that they can talk about to their friends.

Cooking

The children will be cooking next week and we would really appreciate your £1 donation so that we can start to purchase ingredients. Thank you.

Phonics

During your child’s learning at nursery they have been learning different sounds. We have been using a fun and interactive way to support children in learning how to read and write. Please continue to remind them and learn them at home. Parental influence really makes a difference!

If you need and guidance with phonics please do not hesitate to ask!
