Bi-Monthly Newsletter
What we have been up to… Dates for your diary
Personal social and emotional development– drawing faces showing emotions in the sand. Talking about how we feel for example when we smile, laugh and cry. Reading stories about how we feel.

Communication and language- Singing sacks and small group time; talking about what we have been doing at the weekend, learning the days of the week and talking about the weather.

Physical development- we have loved being in the hall we used the equipment and lots of fabric to make a Den, it had benches, balance beams and platforms to climb and jump from. The weather has been good for a few days and we managed to get out on the scoters, bicycles and use the hula hoops and footballs.

Mathematical Development– Colour and number sorting using compare bears and coloured objects. Number and quantity rhymes.

Literacy-Phonic letter sounds using peg games and song bags

Understanding the world– Learning about growing. We have planted seeds in pots, discussed life cycles of a plant and how we are going to look after the plants and flowers in the nursery garden.

Expressive arts and design-Mark making using sand, flour and chalks. Using the junk modelling to create towers and castles for the small world people. And using stickers, and stencils to make beautiful pictures.

This week we have …

March 3, 2017

We have been pretty busy this week. 

We have managed to get outside and explore in the mud and talk about what new flowers we would like in the pots. 

We also raced on the bicycles, and balanced on the tyres.

We built Dens in the hall, and used the apparatus to climb, jump and crawl along. The older children even taught the smaller ones how to crawl along the bench. 

We had a visit from the fire engine and firemen on Tuesday which was great fun and have been dressing up as people who help us and making emergency service vehicles using lots of different equipment all week. 

We would love any other emergency services visit us,if any parent/s know of any that could come? 

We were very excited to get new sand and some new paper for our creative station. 

We are really looking forward to the nicer weather because as one of the children told us ‘Peppa is tired jumping in muddy puddles’
