Nursery 2018

Miss Kenyon

This Spring we will be looking at the Gingerbread man story. We will be very busy reading the story, acting out the story, making gingerbread men and baking!

We will be reading the story of the Gingerbread man and developing our writing skills by practising writing our name as well as encouraging the children to write labels.

Children need to wear the correct uniform to school and as the weather is getting colder a sensible waterproof coat is necessary as outdoor provision is always open!

At the end of the half term, we will again be re-assessing the children in the Early Years Curriculum areas, to see how they have developed and what children’s next steps of learning will be.

Our next steps for learning this half term will be;

  • Counting objects 1:1 and recognising numerals 1-10.
  • Retelling stories and rhymes
  • Draw and paint and talk about what we have made
  • Talk about things we have done, seen and experienced at home and at school
  • Take turns and listen to others
  • Show an interest in the different areas of learning within the Unit

You can help by practise any of these things at home along with completing the tasks in the home learning book.

Don’t forget that you can email your home learning to us
