Welcome to Nursery

Welcome to Nursery

January 2020.

Welcome back and ‘Happy New Year’. We hope you all had an enjoyable break and are ready for the new term ahead. We would like to say a big “Welcome” to all our new children and their parents/carers who will be starting at Firbeck Nursery this half term. We are all very excited to begin the Spring term.

This term we welcome Mrs Vigars to our Nursery team. She will be working in Nursery on a Friday all day. Our Nursery team is Miss Braun (Nursery Teacher) Miss Hopton (Teaching assistant) and Mrs Vigars (Teaching assistant)

Topic Focus

This half term our topic is called ‘It’s cold outside’. Our theme is Winter/Polar animals. We are beginning our topic with the story One Snowy Night’ by Nick Butterworth.

On Tuesday the children all enjoyed going on a winter walk around school. The children noticed lots of changes in our environment and asked lots of interesting questions about what they observed.. During our topic the children will be learning about polar bears and penguins. We will looking at stories and non-fiction books and we will planning activities around the children’s interests. Each week the weekly theme will be displayed on our parents notice board. Please take time to have a look.

This week the children have started to make their class book about their favorite present or toy. Thank you to everybody who has brought their toy/present into Nursery to show us. We look forward to sharing our book with everybody when it is finished.

Last term we learnt the Nursery rhymes Humpty Dumpty, Row row row your boat and Incy Wincy spider. The children have really enjoyed learning how to sing and sign the words. This week we have learnt the rhyme 5 Little Monkeys jumping on the bed. Each week your child will bring a copy of the rhyme home with them. Please have a go at singing the rhymes at home with your child.

During our Nursery activity session the children have the opportunity to choose outdoor learning and they go out for Nursery outside time. At the moment the weather is changing on a daily basis. Please can you make sure your child has the appropriate clothing for the cold weather. Coat, hat, scarf, gloves.
