This half term...
- Our topic is Music & Sound. We will be focusing on sounds and what we can hear around us, children will explore instruments and musical composition. This topic supports the development of phase 1 phonics as children will be focusing on listening activities and learning vocabulary to describe sounds and how we make them. Children will explore verbal sounds and how we use letter sounds to create the words we speak, hear, read and write. Children will be enjoying a variety of musical genres and creating their own music.
- Just a reminder nursery begins promptly at 8.30 or 12.30. Should you child arrive late they are missing learning opportunities at register time such as name writing and phonics. The nursery door will not be open after 8.40. Should you arrive after this time please sign your child in at the school office as the register will have been taken and your child marked absent.
- Children's home learning link books will be checked everyday for your messages and signed should there be no correspondence required. This book is where we will write nursery information and send letters home so please ensure you also check this daily.
- Can we kindly remind parents we are a school which promotes healthy eating. Children are not required to bring a drink to nursery as they have access to water or milk throughout the session. Should they wish to bring their own bottle this must be water only. Juice will not be given to children.
The Characteristics Of Effective Learning
The Characteristics of Effective Learning (COEL) are embedded through our Early Years Unit.
As a school, we took the decision to link the COEL with the Building Learning Powers (BLP) strategy that school have adopted.
Our children choose to learn and play through the BLP superhero attributes:
Playing and Exploring – Green Lantern (Self belief), Rogue (Imitation)
Active Learning – Superman (Aim High), Avengers (Team work), Iron man (Revise Skills).
Creating and Thinking Critically – The Hulk (Perseverance), Cyclops (Manage distractions), Spiderman (Ability to become unstuck).
