This half term
We are learning about The Weather, we will be looking at water freezing and what makes ice melt. We will be having a visit from Mr Freeze who does some awful things in our Nursery, and the children have to find ways to stop him. You can also help by talking to your child about the different kinds of weather we will be experiencing and what they can see around them, during walks and outings.
We are also welcoming some new children into Nursery who I have no doubt will settle quickly and have a great experience with our older children helping them.
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.
