We are beginning Block 2 of the Unit this week, when the children will concentrate on creating their role-play area. They will learn to design and plan some super hero accessories to wear as well as learn to make choices in the colours and materials that they will use.

The children will also practice their skills in cooperation and team work by helping each other to create a superhero den. They will be provided with a variety of materials and furniture to build with.

The children will have a big focus on the personal quality Adaptability especially towards their team building this week. On Friday we will have our Sports Day at the start of the morning. The children can practice showing adaptability as they rotate around different stations with mixed teams along with primary 1.

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

Independence and Interdependence

1.7a Making choices with others


2.75a Exploring how colour and texture can be changed


3.2a Exploring body parts

Healthy Living

4.10a Developing gross motor skills using a range of equipment

We have had a great first week trialling the new IEYC curriculum unit called To The Rescue. We especially enjoyed the story Supertato! At home this week to continue the enthusiasm and great communication you could lay out some real vegetables for your child to role-play the story with. Peas and a Potato were the main characters, but there were also carrots, broccoli and cucumbers featured! You could draw on eyes or make a little cape for the pea/potato like we did in class.

Phonics Learning (Afternoon Nursery Kids):

This week’s Jolly Phonic letters are Ll and Ff.

This week we are making the Ll sound by pretending to lick a giant lolly. At home you could make one using card to add fun to the letter. For the Ff letter sound the children are to pretend they are squeezing the air out of a balloon.
