Welcome to Nursery and Preschool
Autumn Term 2 2018
Welcome to a new half term in Nursery and Preschool.
Once we have settled the children back into routine we will begin looking at our topic for Autumn Term 2.
We will be looking at Night and Day - the differences between them, and what activities we do. We will also be looking at books linked to these themes - We're going on a bear hunt; Peace at Last and Owl babies.
We will use these books to plan all our learning opportunities, as well as asking the children about the activities they would like to undertake.
Our preschool children will continue learning phase 1 phonics, moving onto syllables and rhyme/alliteration in words, as well as continuing to develop their listening skills, and identifying everyday environmental sounds.
We will focus on the numbers 1 - 5 - as well as developing the children's fine motor skills with lots of funky finger activities. We will look at counting patterns, and start to use the language of position and size - longer/shorter.
As always communication and language will be our main focus - when adults will encourage your child to use spoken language to ask for what they need. We will be pre -teaching the vocabulary in some of our new books, to give the children a better understanding of the tales we are sharing with them. Please support us at home by encouraging your child to use their language - give your children a reason to need to talk.
As always if you have any questions or concerns please see your child's key person or myself.
Mrs Harrison, Miss Iqbal, Mrs Maqsood, Mrs Patel
