20th November 2020

This week we are listening to and learning some nursery rhymes. Please do carry on helping your child get the idea of rhymes by reading rhyming stories, playing around with language by making up simple rhymes yourself, rhyming single words with either real words or nonsense words, listening for rhyming words on TV. Once children get the idea they love to play around with language and make up rhymes themselves.

The children are enjoying looking at different nursery rhymes and we are going to carry on with the rhyming theme next week. There are some new rhyming words on this week’s vocabulary sheet. We have been using them to play a game where we find pairs of rhyming words.

We have started to learn our Christmas songs already! There will be a video of our Christmas  sing song put on the school website for you all to enjoy at home.

I am putting some dates to remember for everyone here. Please note that nursery finishes the day before the main school. So the last day for nursery will be Thursday the 17th December.

Monday 30th November-Nursery performance will be recorded, so children will need to come into nursery wearing Christmassy colours or Christmas jumpers.

Dec 11th Last day to bring in cards for class.

Dec 16th Christmas jumper day £1.00

Dec 17th Party day-come in party clothes- last day of nursery

The children have had another busy week! We looked closely at some of the fruits from the story of Handa and we made a delicious fruit salad to see what they tasted like. Along with rhyming activities we managed to fit in fireworks and Remembrance Day, so all in all a busy week.

Next week we are going to be looking at nursery rhymes. We will be looking at the most well-known ones, and hopefully the children will manage to learn one or two over the week. If you remember any yourself please do say them with your children. Rhyming is an important pre reading skill. You may want to help your child get the idea of rhymes by reading rhyming stories, playing around with language by making up simple rhymes yourself, rhyming single words with either real words or nonsense words, listening for rhyming words on TV. Once children get the idea they love to play around with language and make up rhymes themselves.

Don’t be surprised if you hear your child singing some Christmas songs at home in the near future! Unfortunately there will not be any Christmas concerts this year due to COVID. However, the children will soon start to learn some Christmas songs ready for us to video a short sing song which we will put on Tapestry for you all to enjoy at home.

We hope you all had a good half term break, the children have come back refreshed and raring to go! This week we have been be focusing on the story Handas Surprise by Eileen Browne. Lots of children have had a go at making little books from the story, do ask them to retell you the story in their own words, lots of them will remember at least part of the story.

We will also do some more cooking next week. We are going to make fruit salads using the fruits from the story.

We will carry on with this book next week and we will also introduce some new activities based on rhyming. Rhyming is an important pre reading skill.
