So far this week, the children have taken part in Race for Life and Sports day. They all done fantastic when running the Race for Life and each ran two laps of the playground.
We got such a lovely day for Sports day and the sun was shining all morning. All of the children tried their best and really got involved. Well done Nursery!
We have recently began the topic of Summertime and transformed our Nursery classroom with lots of engaging activities and role play areas. We currently have an ice cream shop in our play dough area, a beach shop as our role play, a seaside small world area and sandcastle competitions in our construction area. The topic is providing engaging activities across the curriculum, focusing in on the children's communication, language and vocabularly. Take a look below at some of the things we have done so far.
During this half term our topic was 'People who helped us', a topic especially close to all of us due to the COVID 19 pandemic. We looked in depth at the role of firefighters and how they help people within the community and also into the role of the staff in our hospital. Below are some photos of some of the activities which we carried out, linking to all areas of the curriculum.
Below is the Early Years curriculum map, showing all of the topics which will be covered within this academic year and how each topic links to each area of the Early Years framework.
Phonics and letter formation
As you all my know we use two different schemes when learning phonics and letter formation. We use Jolly Phonics to learn the letter sound. (This is the sound that the letter makes not the name of the letter.) We then use Read Write Inc. to form our letter sounds.
Below we have added some useful links and resources when helping your child with their phonics and letter formation.
It is really important that you keep reading at home. Whether this be looking through story books and retelling the story in their own words, using a range of different questioning or reading simple CVC words or recognising sounds and sign in the environment.
Oxford reading owl is a great resource to find online texts that the children can explore. With a FREE ebook library and advice and support for parents and educational activities and games.

Disney Pixar's inside out is a great film to get us talking about different feelings as each character is assigned to a feeling. If you get the chance to watch the film or have already have watched the film we have added some activities to try below.
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
