Please feel free to come into Foundation Stage and talk to any member of staff if you have any questions or concerns.
Our topic this half term is 'Pets'. We will be learning lots about different pets people have, including naming them and describing their features. We will also be learning how to look after pets at home.
We will be reading the stories 'Pete the Cat - I Love My White Shoes' and 'Time for Bed, Fred'
Please see our class Knowledge Organiser for more information about our topic and activities that you can complete at home.
In Literacy we will be reading two key texts over the next 6 weeks. These are 'Pete the Cat - I Love My White Shoes' and 'Time for Bed, Fred'. We will be talking about the stories, re-telling them and making up our own versions of the stories.
We will be sharing the texts in our key groups and then following on our learning through activities in our continuous provision both inside and outside.
We will also be focusing on recognising our names - can you find your name?
Can you write any of the letters in your name?
In Maths we will be counting up to 10, saying number names in sequence up to 10 and counting u to 10 objects. We will also be recognising and ordering numbers 1-10.
We will also be recognising and beginning to describe simple 2d shapes.
Every child in Nursery has a reading pack. Inside is a story for you to share together. It is a great opportunity to spend quiet time together at the end of a busy day. When reading, encourage your child to join in with repeated parts of the story and to add actions. When you have finished, ask lots of questions about the story such as 'who is in the story?', 'where is the story set?' and 'what happened in the story?'. We will change your reading book each week, please bring in the reading pack every day.
In Nursery we take part in daily phonics sessions - these involve learning new songs and rhymes, listening to and making different sounds with our bodies and voices and finding words that rhyme.
This half term children will be taking home a 'home learning' book. Each week there will be a song, activity, story or game to play and talk about at home. New home learning will be given out on a Friday, please return by the following Thursday.
