Changes IPC Unit: Week 3

posted 6 Dec 2015, 00:04 by Nursery Teacher 2   [ updated 6 Dec 2015, 00:11 ]

This week in Nursery we have a special focus about families. We will explore how each family member is different and can change as we grow up. We will also look at our extended families and the different names we have for them. In the afternoon the nursery and primary 1 children will also explore changes in the story, characters and events in The Gingerbread Man.

The children will have a big focus on Communication, one of our IPC Personal Qualities. The children will practice their communication skills by expressing their ideas to each other, as well as practice listening and looking at the person speaking to them.


These are four main learning strands that we are focusing on this week;

Independence and Interdependence

1.11 interpersonal skills


2.4 using repetitive sounds and words, aspects of language such as rhythm, rhyme and alliteration, and to enjoy nonsense stories and rhymes

2.21 being creative and expressive though a variety of activities


3.10 setting and solving problems

This week if you have any photographs of your extended family (grandparents, cousins, aunties & uncles) you can email them to us to support the children in their learning about different names we use for each family member. You can also enjoy singing the Family Finger Song  together which teaches different names of family members.
