3-4 year olds
This term in Nursery our topic is Minibeasts, we will be exploring minibeasts and their habitats as we head out into the garden and continue our weekly Forest School sessions. Here we will think about what different minibeasts look like, where they live and what we know about them. We will have a story each week based on a minibeast and base our learning around this book, some of these books include; Mad About Minibeasts and The Crunching Munching Caterpillar. We think that it is important that the children learn about the minibeast by observing them, so as well as looking at them outside, we may end up with some visitors in our classroom, keep your eyes peeled for updates on Tapestry!
We are looking forward to our new children joining us, and getting to know them and their families, as well as our older children supporting these new children to settle in. Our older children will begin some of their transition work, to help them feel ready for starting school in September. We will also continue to work on our communication and story-telling skills through our weekly helicopter stories sessions.
Our older children will be starting to learn their sounds in our daily Read Write Inc sessions, beginning to recognise what the letters look like, how they sound and how we write them. Our younger children will continue to focus on their listening and attention skills through our daily Phase 1 phonics sessions. As the weather continues to get nicer, we will be spending even more time outside, so don’t forget those sun hats and water bottles and make sure that your child has sun cream on before they come to Nursery.
