Welcome to Nursery for Summer 2 everyone!
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to Summer 2, the final part of our Nursery year! We hope you had a sunny half-term break. We would like to thank you all for your contributions towards the children’s learning, a year we will certainly remember! We could not have done it without you. This half-term is packed with fun transition activities as well as our end of year Sports Day and Picnic. This half-term we will be learning about being All Grown Up!
This half term we will be focusing on being All Grown Up. We will look at books and stories about moving on and growing up. We will collaborate with Reception teachers to make the transition as smooth as possible. To prepare children for their new classes, children will need to be able to put their shoes on, dress and undress themselves without help. Please encourage children to do the same at home. Children will attend short story times in their new classes to get to know their new teachers.
Books we will be reading this half-term:
-Lost and Found
-Harry and the dinosaurs go to school
-Me and my friends
- I am absolutely too small for school
-Splat the cat
Our children will continue to learn to read sounds and begin to blend them into words. You can support this by listening to your child read the phonics/reading book they bring home each week. Please focus on CVC words such as m-a-t. Children will use their sounds to label their work.
We will learn to add two groups of objects together. Ur key vocabulary for this will be add, adding, subtract and takeaway. We will encourage the children to use these words in their activities, so please encourage them to use these words at home too.
We will use stories to explore how we are feeling about our new classes. We will also talk about ways we can support each other and manage our feelings and emotions in a healthy way.
Communication and Language:
We will continue to focus on our language development, building vocabulary and using a clear sentence structure when we speak. Please encourage your children to always speak in full sentences rather than single words or phrases.
Please read with your child every day.
Ask your child what they have learnt at nursery.
Ask children lots of questions during the day i.e Why? How? What? I wonder why…
Do some daily counting, spot some numbers on the way to school and back.
