It has been lovely to see the children have settled back into Nursery happy, full of excitement and enjoying seeing their friends again.
We have had a busy week with the start of our new topic 'People Who Help Us' We have had many discussions on who help us at school. There are lots of important people at school and the children discovered who they are and what their jobs were, and how they all help to make school a happy learning environment.
We introduced our phonics programme this week and the children love their' listening ears' headbands and the activities we have been doing. We have been on listening walks identifying different sounds both indoors and outdoors. Introduced new circle games and songs that all help establish good listening skills and awareness of sounds that leads into sound letter recognition.
The home learning packs have been well received and many of the children are enjoying taking these home. Please fill out a home learning observation form.
We have planted our bulbs on time this year ready for summer. The children really enjoyed working out in the garden and take great pleasure looking after our plants and making the playground a lovely 'green' area.
Thursday we had a visit from Paddington Fire station. The children loved climbing aboard the engine and seeing up close all the different equipment on the engine. This leads onto next week focusing on how the fire fighters help us.
We hope you have a fun weekend
