Nursery Staff hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and would like to welcome our Fantastic Rising 3s to St George and St Martins. They have all settled in so well, and have started making lots of new friends. All the children are doing their best to learn all the new prayers, songs, their friend’s names and the classroom routine.
It is a new year and a new term and we have already leaped into our new topic of: ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ which will be taught through the Early Years Foundation Stage and the seven areas of learning: Communication, language and literacy, Personal Social and Emotional development, Physical Development, Literacy, Math's, Knowledge of the World and Expressive arts and design.
The children have already used their creative skills to paint their favourite jungle animal, these have been displayed along the key stage one corridor and in our classroom. The children have been very busy access the continuous provision, the jungle explores cave, creative table , jungle small world, construction and of course the outside area are where they love to play and learn the most even in this lovely wet and windy wintery weather.
In the next couple of weeks we will looking at a range of jungle books as a focus stimulus for our learning: Dear zoo, Giraffes can’t dance, smile crocodile smile, monkey puzzle, just to a name a few.
Well done to Miss Arnold’s Nursery class for coming back after the Christmas break so mature and eager to learn lots more, we have had a fabulous start to the term, may this continue.
Autumn Term 2019 Topic
Welcome to your new Nursery year at St George and St Martins, I hope you are all excited and are looking forward to learning lots of new things in a fun and active way. Ms Pang and myself are greatly looking forward to the year ahead.
Already the children have settled in so well these first few weeks of term, parents you should be so proud of how well they play, learn and interact with each other. All the children are doing their best to learn all the new prayers, songs, their friend’s names and the classroom routine.
The children’s topic this term is ‘Me and My World’ we have started off learning all about our families and friends. The children shared detailed accounts of past experiences and information about members of their family. The children used the photographs that you send in so thank you for making this a great success.
The children have also created wonderful self-portraits which are now being displayed along the key stage one corridor and in our classroom. The children have been very busy accessing the continuous provision; the home corner, creative table, small world, construction and of course the outside area where they love to play and learn the most. The children loved having our rainy day last Friday, jumping puddles and collecting the rain.
In the next couple of weeks we will be moving onto looking at the different senses, emotions and our bodies.
Every week the children will have a 'book of the week’ which purposeful and engaging activities will be centred around. Throughout the Term the children will also be hearing stories by our class author Mick Inkpen and using these as a basis for our continuous provision.
Well done to Miss Arnold’s Nursery class, we have had a fabulous start to the year, may this continue.
