Welcome to Nursery and Preschool
Summer Term 2 2018
Welcome back to the last half term of this year - where has the time gone?
This term we will be looking at 'New Life' as our topic, and we have included the children's ideas of what they would like to learn about - which includes plants and animals - although sadly I am not able to buy a real life elephant for the nursery playground, as one child requested!
We will be going shopping at the Garden Centre in our role play area, and exploring the theme through books and our reading area using props.
Hopefully with better weather we will be able to utilise our outside space more, and develop those gross motor skills which are so important to build.
This is the last half term we will have our preschoolers at Brookhouse Early Years, so we will be preparing them for their journey to reception class in September. We will also be undertaking transition through a series of activities, and welcoming their new teachers into the setting.
Mrs Rasul and I will also be running a 'Ready for school' parents workshop in the upcoming weeks, so if this is your first child or your latest attending school, all parents are more than welcome to find out how best to prepare yourself and your child.
We will also begin a 'chatter chums' group on Tuesday mornings, which can be attended by a parent and child, to help develop your child's confidence and clarity in using spoken language.
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. Please support us by encouraging this at home too - 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.
