Please remember that this week the children will have their school photos taken. Please make sure children are wearing their cubs t-shirt all week.
- Just a reminder the Pre Nursery Classes borrow books from the library each Monday. Please make sure you bring the library book back each Monday so that your child will be able to take out a new book.
- Please remember that children need a labelled waterproof bag containing their swimming costume, swim hat and towel on our Wednesday swimming day. Goggles are optional. Arm bands or other swim aids are not needed.
- As the weather is beginning to change please make sure your child comes to school with suitable named outdoor clothes; a raincoat with a hood and rain boots, which they can change into to go outside when it is wet. Please label all items with your child’s name!
OUR LEARNING THEME: ANIMALS
So many children in our Pre Nursery classes have shown a great interest in animals of all shapes and sizes. Not only do they love playing with the small world animals in the classroom, but they are also fascinated by their family pets and the creepy crawlies seen outside in the outdoor area. Therefore we are going to further explore the animals found in different areas- farms, jungles, and the grassy areas around us. We will discuss the names of the animals and the different sounds each animal makes. The children will compare their sizes and how they move. We look forward to the children telling us about their favourite animals!
Farm, jungle, insects, bugs, barn, favourite, what is your favourite?
COMMUNICATION, LANGUAGE AND LITERACY
Last week our Makaton signs of the week were toilet and washing hands . This week our signs will be drink water, sleep and eat. It would be fantastic if you could support us at home by teaching and practising these signs in your mother tongue.
Drink water, sleep, eat, I need to …. I need a ….
As well as developing our gross motor skills during our PE and Swimming lessons, we will observe how the children move in the outdoor area. Often the children will use different equipment including balls, hoops, brooms and the climbing frame. There will also be plenty of opportunity for fine motor development as the children engage in a range of craft activities.
Jump, run, climb, fast, slow, roll, catch, throw
