Welcome to Nursery and Preschool
Spring Term 1 2018
Welcome to a new term and a new year. We hope you enjoyed a restful 2 week holiday, and are looking forward to what this year has in store.
We will begin by settling the children back into the Nursery routine, as well as welcoming new families to Brookhouse Early Years.
This term we are looking at food - we will begin by reading the Gingerbread man and Little Red Hen stories, and using these to plan some food based activities such as making bread, and gingerbread playdough. We will be encouraging the children to learn and repeat phrases from these well known books, as well as telling us how they will end.
We will continue to work on the recognition of numbers to 5, and looking at rhyme, and words that start with the same letter (alliteration) in phonics. We will learn our friends names, and try to recognise our own name card with our photograph removed. We will develop the children's imagination skills, and how to interact with others, developing play skills too.
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.
