Autumn 2

The family story box session was a great success. The children enjoyed sharing stories with their parents and creating a creative and colourful story box to go with their favourite story. Have a look at the pictures below:

The children have really enjoyed their visit to Hanley library. Emma the librarian read the children some fantastic stories. The children then had a look around the library, chose books and read them. All the children will be coming home with a library card so please use this opportunity to visit the library with your children and borrow books to read together. The library has fantastic events every weekend and in the holidays and they are free!!!!!!

Take a look at our pictures below:

This half term we will be looking closely at the season of Autumn. This will begin with our Autumn walk. This will give the children the opportunity to have first hand experience of walking through the woods and playing in and seeing the leaves falling. This will help to build the children’s vocabulary so that they can talk about the changes in the weather and comment about the world around them. 

Here are some photographs of the Autumn walk below:

 

The children really enjoyed getting creative for bonfire night. We made chocolate bread stick sparklers!! The children thought they were delicious!! Take a look at what we got up to also with our colourful firework pictures below:

 

We will be looking closely at different stories this half term to support children’s communication, listening and attention skills. These stories will provide a great stimulus for the children to become creative in their role play but also their art work and design. They also support children in their early writing and reading skills. The books we will be covering this half term are:

 

 

 

Phonics in the Nursery.

The children from week beginning 20th November will begin phase 2 phonics. They will be learning the sounds of the alphabet, this will support them in their early reading and writing skills. Sounds will be sent home weekly in their homework books. Please practice as often as you can with your children learning the sounds and having a go at writing the different letters.

Following on from sounds of the week reading words will be sent home alongside your child’s reading book. Please can you make sure that you read with your children and sign the diary at least 3 x a week. Please also practice their reading words. Parents who work with their children at home help to secure the knowledge that is being learnt at school and these are the children who make the most progress. Regular diary checks are made on a Monday when hearing your child read.

Thank you for your continued support.
