 Please could you make sure your child  has their own wellington boots in Nursery all the time as we love to run and explore outside, even when the ground is muddy and wet! We wouldn't want them to miss out on this fun which improves their Wellbeing and Physical Development.

This week we have lots of exciting things planned...

We are learning about 'The Smartest Giant in town'. We will be focusing on the rhyming words within the story and creating patterns.

We will be reading various books which contain patterns such as : 

Pants, More Pants, Elmer and looking at patterns in the environment.

Yoga will be based around the animals in the Smartest Giant in town story.

On Tuesday in P.E we will be having a warm-up with our Bean game, creating different patterns with different movements and then a cooling down session.

The children will be encouraged to create their own patterns in different media and we will also be taking pictures of different patterns around the school and outside. 

Ways to support your child at home:

talk about the different patterns that are on their clothes, in their bedrooms and in nature outside. There are patterns everywhere!

Can they name the shapes that are used within those patterns?

Rhyme of the week:

 A leopard has lots of spots

Spots, spots, spots, spots.

Spots, spots, spots, spots.

A leopard has lots of spots,

what a lot of spots he's got

a tiger's stripes are always nice

but a leopard has lots of  spots

spots, spots, spots, spots,

spots, spots,spots

tickle, tickle!

Please can all children have a named sunhat in their bag as the weather will be improving. Your child should also come to nursery with their sun cream applied already. If your child is in all day and you would like the cream applied in the afternoon then you will need to have a named sun cream bottle in their bag. Even when it is hot weather flip flops, open-toed sandals and crocs are NOT suitable for nursery due to the physical activities that the children participate in during the session.  It is crucial that together we keep your children safe in the sun.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
