This half term
We are learning about New Life and Growth. We are looking at plants and animals growing as well as ourselves. We will be planting seeds and watching them change and grow, also learning about different parts of a plant. We are going to have some eggs to incubate and hopefully watch them hatch and growing into chicks, as well as looking at tadpoles and watching them change into frogs.
So its a busy half term as well as all this we are working hard on number recognition and writing numbers, representing number with fingers, as well as counting beyond 10.
Our writing is coming along nicely and we have all been recognising our names and writing letters in our names, as well as being able to hear the initial sounds.
Outdoor Areas of Provision
We use out outdoor areas in all weathers so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately. The children have been looking at the changes happening due to the weather, leaves falling from the trees, frost, ice and snow in the Nursery garden.
The children have been using the bikes and scooters to continue their gross motor development and climbing and balancing on the Nursery equipment.
The areas of provision change each half term to support the learning taking place. We follow the children’s interests to make sure they are engaged in the activities and encourage the children to use them independently, supporting when needed learning opportunities.
The older children are focusing on pencil control and writing their names. We count every day and are counting up to 10 and beyond, recognizing numbers up to 10 and shape recognition. This can also be reinforced at home by counting with your child regularly and helping them to hold a pencil with the correct grip and encouraging them to form the letters in their names correctly.
