Home learning - ARTS WEEK CHALLENGE

As a school, we are attempting to carry on with our planned Arts week. The theme this year is 'insects', and as a year group, Nursery have opted to look at Caterpillars and Butterflies.

It would be lovely if you could have a go at making a caterpillar or butterfly picture/model at home. You could take a picture of this and post it on Tapestry. I will then add it to our virtual art gallery on the school website.

Please keep checking in to your Tapestry account and let me know what things you are doing at home.

   

Friday was meant to be our dress as a bug day, as part of Arts Week.
It would be lovely if you wanted to have a go at making a costume from things around your house. You could maybe post a picture of your costume on Tapestry for Mrs Russell and I to see. Let us know if you also want us to add your picture to our Nursery web page. Have fun!!!

ARTS WEEK PICTURES

Spring is on its way and our topics this term will have a scientific flavour. For the first half of this term will be thinking about why things are shiny. We are looking at reflections and vocabulary associated with dull and shiny objects. After half term, our attention will be focused on staying healthy as we ask the question “Why can’t I have chocolate for breakfast?

Children’s interests continue to inspire much of our learning and this term the children have shown an interest in space. Mrs Russell has built us a great rocket ship book corner and we have looked at space related story books.

                            ​

Literacy is a big focus for us and our featured Talk for Writing books this term are The Enormous Turnip and The Very Hungry Caterpillar (which ties in with our healthy eating work). During our Talk for Writing sessions, we learn about the characters and events in a story and then try to create our own adaptation. Similarly, our daily Story Spines activity lets us study one book for five consecutive days, looking at different aspects from settings and characters to vocabulary and meaning.

In phonics, we continue to learn our letters and sounds at Phase One and Phase Two, as well as preparing our gross motor movements through Write Dance.

Celebrations and special events we will look at this term include World Book Day, Mother’s Day and of course Easter.





Our new Nursery cohort has settled into their pre-school year and we look forward to the many opportunities and challenges ahead.


The first half of this term will be an exploration of who we are, and our focus of “Why do you love me so much?” will look at friendships and relationships at school and in the wider community. Autumn features heavily in our learning this term, as our second topic of “Why Do Leaves Go Crispy” looks at changes in the outdoor area.


Our featured book “Each Peach Pear Plum” introduces a wealth of traditional tales and poems as part of our Talk for Writing programme and in the second half of the term we will look at “Dear Zoo” and “Dear Santa”. Other elements of literacy this term include promoting good listening skills through Phase One phonics and gross motor development through Write Dance.


The celebrations and special events we will look at this term include Harvest Festival, Diwali and Halloween in October; the Rugby World Cup, Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day in November; Hanukkah, Advent and Christmas in December.

We looked at our own bodies and how we are different from other animals. Then ​Arnold the tortoise came to visit us from Mrs Russell's house. He looks very, very different from us. Arnold had a lovely time playing with the children, but slept for a very long time afterwards.
