Week Begining 23rd May

We have a special focus on where clothes come from this week. This will be an important research week for the children to find out more about how clothes are made as well as the origin of their clothes and materials. The children will also enquire into wool and cotton and find out where they come from and how they are made into clothing. We will use books, online videos, crafts and materials to discover new knowledge and understanding.

This week we are practicing our communication skills. We will do this by explaining our ideas, listening to others and concentrating.


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

Independence and Interdependence

1.5 their own ethnic group and other ethnic groups


2.10 exploring and observing the use of print


3.8 moving in space and moving in rhythm

Healthy Living

4.9 keeping themselves safe from harm

On Wednesday at 8.15 – 9.15am we have our parent open morning. We will be sharing our learning in Literacy – in nursery this is our Communication Strand. Parents will lead their children around various stations set up to demonstrate their new skills in speaking, fine motor skills (pencil/scissor control), phonics, comprehension etc.

Please ensure all parents/nannies are ready to begin at 8.15am sharp. This will help you manage to complete all of the stations in the time given.


Phonics Learning (Afternoon Nursery Kids):

This week’s Jolly Phonic letters are Rr and Mm.

This week you can practice writing your name at home. If your child hasn’t learned this skill yet you can begin with the first letter which should be a capital letter. All the other letters should be written in lower case. Parents can first write their name in yellow pencil, then your child can write/trace on the top using a dark writing pencil. * If your child has already learned to write their name then you can practice forming each letter correctly.
