Welcome to Nursery and Preschool
Summer Term 1 2018
Welcome back after the Easter holiday - we hope you had a good rest and did not eat too much chocolate.
This term we will be looking at 'Journeys' as our topic, following the children's interests as they particularly liked vehicles in our 'People who help us' work.
We will be blasting off into space 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.
We will be welcoming 9 new families into the Nursery, so we hope you will join us in extending a warm welcome to them and their children as they settle into life at Brookhouse Early Years.
If your child is a preschooler, on Monday 14th April you will be notified of where your child will be attending school in September 2018. Please help us prepare for this transition by informing Mrs Harrison of the receiving reception class so we can make arrangements for your child to be visited by their new teacher. As a staff we will be preparing your child for their transition to school by ensuring they can independently go to the toilet, put on their own coat, recognise their name without a photograph and sit and listen to a story. There are lots of ways you can help at home, and shortly I will provide you with a list of ways you can prepare your child for the next step in their learning journey.
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.
