Spring is in the air!
A short half-term but enough room to squeeze in a new topic…Our Favourite Stories, this will encompass the following areas each week:
Week 23 (25.02.19) General introduction to new topic
Week 24 (04.03.19) The Day the Crayons Quit (World Book Day)
Week 25 (11.03.19) Jack and the Beanstalk
Week 26 (18.03.19) The Gingerbread Man
Week 27 (25.03.19) The Gruffalo
Week 28 (01.04.19) Easter
We encourage our children to be as involved as possible, so if you have any topical story books, listening tapes, resources etc. we would love to take a look!
Ideas for parents and children to follow at home:
Read and share familiar and traditional stories together at home.
Encourage your child to join in with repetitive phrases within the story.
Begin to ask questions about what you are reading/have read together e.g. who was in the story, what happened at the beginning/in the middle/at the end, which character did you like?
Observe how Winter is changing to Spring and talk about what happens in the spring time.
Discuss how plants grow and how we can help to look after them. Can you grow a seed together at home and watch how it changes over time? Can you take photographs of this to share at school?
Discuss celebrations and the idea of Easter.
Please do not forget parents evenings are next week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Aim to arrive promptly at least 10 minutes prior to your appointment to support us in ensuring it is a smoothly run and successful evening. Access is via the nursery entrance only. Many thanks.
