Mrs Virdee and Mrs Ali warmly welcome you to Nursery.
The aim of this page is to highlight some of the fantastic learning that has been happening in Nursery, this page will be updated monthly, with photographs and information about the learning we have completed during the month.
We hope you enjoy looking through these updates and do discuss your child’s learning with them to celebrate their success. We look forward to any suggestions you may have to make your child’s learning a pleasant experience.
What we have been learning so far this year:
Communication and Language
This month the children in Nursery have been looking at the topic of Food. We have been reading the story of The Tiger who came to tea. The children enjoyed talking about the different parts of the story and using the puppets to retell the story from beginning to end. Our children were able to discuss and explain what would happen next in the story by using full sentences whilst talking. The Nursery children are able to order the story through pictures. Well done Nursery!
Exploring Media and Materials
This month in Nursery the children have been looking at their favourite foods, using different drawing materials children have been doing a lot of drawings of foods. We have been looking at foods the children eat at home and at nursery. Our children have also enjoyed drawing pictures of the tiger from the story we have been learning which is The Tiger who came to Tea. They have been learning how to hold the colouring pencil correctly and form different shapes for the food they drew. Fantastic drawings Nursery!
This month we have been reading the story of The Tiger who came to Tea in Nursery. The children enjoyed listening to the storying from the beginning to the end, they are able to retell the story in order by using pictures. The children used puppets and masks to act the story during role play. Our children loved reading and looking at pictures from the story with their friends, the children also acted out the actions of the story with their friends. Children picked up key phrases from the story and would join in whilst they would listen to the story.
This month in Nursey we have been focusing on children to recognise numbers up to 15. Through different activities and games, our children have been learning to recognise and match numbers together. The children have been recognising numbers within their environment and are able to pronounce them in the correct way. Some of our children are beginning to recognise numbers over 15! Our Nursery children are beginning to recognise two-digit numbers and are able to tell which number comes first. Well done Nursery!
Personal, Social, Emotional Development
This month in nursey we have been talking about how we feel through stories and talking amongst each other. When reading the story The Tiger who came to tea, we spoke about how the children would feel if a tiger ate all their food. This gave children the opportunity to share their feelings and talk about themselves and others. The children also learnt to always be kind to each other whilst playing and talking.
In Nursery this month children have been singing and acting many different songs to relate to the story we are reading which is The tiger who came to tea. Other sings the children enjoyed singing ae the rainbow song and down in the jungle. Children acted out the moves using their hands and body moving to the songs. Our children also used a range of musical instruments to use whilst singing and dancing to the songs. Fantastic singing children!
Understanding the World
This month in Nursery we have also been looking at different jungle animals as part of our story of The Tiger who came to Tea. We looked at where jungle animals live and what they eat. Children drew some fantastic drawings of different jungle animals and where they live. They spoke about the animals and the different sounds they make. Our Nursery children learnt alot about the different jungle animals around the world.
