Welcome to Nursery's Learning Page
MEET THE TEAM
Our Topic this half term is: We Are World Explorers
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
TOPIC - Growing Together
In this topic we are looking at plants and Spring. We will be planting seeds and plants and learning how to care for them. We will explore plants in all forms- seeds, leaves, roots, flowers and look for what is similar and different about them. We will be looking at the work of Sculptor - Andy Goldsworthy. We will be basing a lot of our work on the story “Jasper’s Beanstalk.”
We will be exploring the plants in our school grounds and visiting Bradley Woods.
We will look forward to seeing your work supporting our topic on Seesaw and asking the children about the things they have been doing at home. Each week a Seesaw slide will be sent home with things you can do at home with your child.
In Nursery the focus on maths begins with the early recognition of number, using numbers within play and focusing on numbers to 5. We explore lots of our maths through the numberblocks, numicon and different counting materials.
We will be working on Measure – length, long and short, height – tall and short, capacity – full, half full and empty.
We will be practising counting numbers to 5 forwards and backwards, counting 1-1 by touching objects and matching them with the corresponding number.
We will subitise (knowing how many without counting)
Here's a few things you could try at home:
Make collections of objects up to 5 and matching them to the correct number.
Subitise (this means knowing rather than counting out) Being able to pick up 1,2,3 4,5 objects and knowing it is 1,2,3,4,5.
Practise writing numbers up to 5.
Make some number cards – place them in order, find the missing number, what number comes next?
Find long, tall and short objects in your home and post some pictures on Seesaw.
Find something heavy and something light in your home.
Fill containers with water, pasta, sand etc full, empty, half full.
Sing some number songs - Google BBC schools radio/counting rhymes
This half term we are continuing to practise writing our names and concentrating on holding a pencil correctly.
We are making recognisable marks and knowing what our writing says - we call this emergent writing.
Can your child draw a picture and add some writing?
Share a book daily with your child. Let them tell you the story using the pictures. Remember we are doing Tommy's Reading Challenge in Nursery and you have had your Reading Challenge sheets.
Remember Wednesdays are our Library day. Please remember to bring your book at the beginning of the session. You can then change your child's book with them from 2.45pm.
