Willow (Nursery)

Our current topic is Why Do Zebra's Have Stripes?

Topic Overview: We have been looking at animals that live in Africa. What kinds of things do they eat? Where do they live? What do they look like?

 

Maths:We are developing curiosity about numbers by learning to recite numbers to 10, know that numbers identify how many objects are in a set and beginning to recognise some numbers to 5 and then 10.

 

Reading: We are developing a love of books by independently looking at favourite books and joining in with the repeated refrains.

 

Writing: We are developing our gross motor and fine motor skills by exploring lots of different mark making opportuities. We are learning to ascribe meaning to our marks and working hard to be able to write our own names.

Supporting your Child's Learning

Snow Day

 Good Morning Nursery. We hope that you are keeping warm and have had lots of opportunities to get out and enjoy the snow. It has been so lovely to see the pictures and videos uploaded on Tapestry of all your snowy adventures! Please continue to enjoy the snow and upload more pictures. Why not go on a snowman hunt? How many can you spot?

If you don't fancy braving the weather today then why not try some of these activities in the warm

  • Snuggling up with a book and a nice warm hot chocolate. Encourage your child to talk about what is happening in the story and pictures.
  • Talk to your child about their thoughts about the snow. Do they like it? What does it look like? What does it feel like? What have they enjoyed doing in the snow? How do they think it is going to melt? Perhaps bring some snow indoors in a bowl and see how long it takes to melt!
  • Using your learning at home pack to complete some  of the suggested activities.
  • If you are feeling creative why not make a snowman picture. Use your child's name card sent home in your learning at home pack to support them to write their name on their picture. Below are some ideas.

Welcome to the Willow Nursery class. My name is Mrs Caton and I am the class teacher. We are helped by Mrs Ashford (Nursery Nurse), Miss Booker (Learning Support Assistant) and Miss Russell (Learning Support Assistant).

 

We learn through play and love to have fun both inside and outside! We enjoy singing songs, listening to stories and dancing! Follow us on our learning journey and see what fun we have.

 

We change our Library books on Mondays so please make sure you return your child's book each week so they can choose a new one 😀
