had a lovely break and are now ready to meet the new challenges ahead.
We will be having a busy start to the Autumn Term settling in to a new classroom and routines.
Our priority this half term is to ensure that all our children are settled, secure, happy and enthusiastic learners!
THINGS TO DO;
This term we will be focussing on developing self-confidence and independence through routines, turn taking, sharing and the use of good manners (please and thankyou).
We will be working on the Early Years Curriculum throughout the Year, which develops our children in lots of different areas. During the first 3 weeks of their time in Nursery we will be assessing the children in the areas of the Early Years Curriculum and sharing this information with Focus Trust and yourselves.
Our Learning Challenges will be centred around our families and ourselves and celebrating how ‘It’s good to be me’!! We will be mark making, sharing stories, songs and rhymes, counting and doing lots of talking about ourselves, our families and what we like to do!
Mrs Saville continues to support Hands and Voices sessions on a Wednesday morning.

We ask for a donation of £3 (for the half term) per child which we use for enhancing some learning areas such as providing baking activities, enhancing our finger fun and messy play, and adding extra ‘bits’ to our role play and water activities.
Early Years children continue to be busy exploring, investigating and learning through play. We will be focussing on traditional tales again – reading, writing, role playing and extending our learning using the Three Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk as our main texts. We will also be exploring and looking at celebrations for occasional days such as World Book Day, Rock Your Socks, pancake day, Easter and Mother’s day.
We continue to teach phonics and handwriting daily in Early Years. Below are some links to some videos that will help the children to practise their writing at home.
