Nursery Weekly Bulletin

Week Commencing - Sunday, 20th January 2019

This Week

This week we have been reading the story ‘Dinosaur Roar’ and other stories to help us learn about opposites. I wonder if your child can tell you some opposites? We have also been making up silly rhymes with our names. Rhyming is an essential pre-reading skill which we will continue to work with throughout this term. We will also continue to learn about about dinosaurs, following the children's interests and lines of enquiry.

Next Week

  • Topic: Dinosaurs
  • Math: Shapes
  • Letters and Sounds: Nonsense rhyme

We have been learning about dinosaur skeletons and fossils. Why not have a go at this game and help Andy fit the dusty old dinosaur bones back together.

We will also recap our shapes and then use shapes to make pictures. This is another quick link to follow if you wish to practise at home:

This Week

The children have done such a fantastic job settling back into school. It has been so lovely seeing them return with such enthusiasm and readiness to learn. On this first week back we have dived right into our dinosaur topic. The children have been discovering a whole new world full of prehistoric creatures. Enjoy these pictures of what the classes have been busy doing.

Next Week

  • Topic: Dinosaurs
  • Math: Opposites
  • Letters and Sounds: Nonsense rhyme

The children will be continuing to explore and find out about dinosaurs in the classrooms. Discussing what they eat, where they lived, their names, what they looked like and reading lots of stories about them.

Linked with the story ‘Dinosaur Roar’ we are learning about opposites. For example, hot and cold, up and down, open and closed. I wonder if your child can use this game and find the opposites. https://www.education.com/game/match-opposite-pictures/

We are also learning how to rhyme. We will be making up funny rhymes with our names and listening to silly poems and even trying to make some up by ourselves.

Reminders

Just a reminder that children should be in the school jacket, jumper or cardigan. If they do not have your child’s size in stock then they should wear a plain navy jumper instead. Also please label any jumpers or jackets to help us look after your child’s belongings.

We would also like to remind parents shoes for school should be white or black and velcro.
