Friday 26th August – Thursday 1st September
We have spent the first week or so in nursery allowing the children to settle in and explore. We have been closely observing their play and their interests. We have used our observations to inform where will take the learning next.
In Literacy this week, we will be exploring familiar stories and retelling them using drama/role play and puppets/small world settings.
In SEAL (Stages of Early Arithmetical Learning) we will be exploring counting forwards and backwards and recognising some numbers.
In response to the interests of the children, the North class will explore the concept of measurement, and the South will look at sorting and matching objects and shapes.
As our new families settle in, our Health and Wellbeing Focus will be on building positive relationships and enjoying being part of the nursery community.
Following our visit to Hopetoun, there has been a lot of interest in bugs and beasties! We will be continuing to explore these in the garden and the playroom, as well as investigating parts of plants and their features.
