Details to follow
Our RICHER RAINBOW and Class Charter
At Nursery we follow the whole school ethos of the Richer Rainbow. We learn about the differnt characters which link to each attribute.
We always use our RICHER values:
As a class, we have created our own Class Charter which includes all the things we think are important when at Nursery. We have signed the orginal copy with our finger prints which you can see on our wall.
All our children have a Learning Journey book in which we will collect evidence to show what they have been learning throughout the year. These will be updated weekly and we would like to invite parents and carers to contribute to them. Look out for WOW tokens in the cloakroom which you can take home and record the amazing things your child does. These can then be brought back to nursery and put in their learning journeys.
Please ask if you would like to see your child's book.
Homework will be sent home every Friday which will reflect the things we have been learning at Nursery and give your child a chance to practise key skills. Please hand homework in on Wednesdays so that we can put it in your child's folder.
There will be a prize at the end of every full term for children completing homework every week!
Red Roses Nursery Reading Challenge
Sharing books with young children and encouraging them to have a love of reading is so important. Your child will bring a book home every week which they have chosen themselves for you to share with them. Please feel free to change their book with them when you arrive at nursery from the bookcase in the cloakroom. We will change books on a Friday.
Your child can also take part in our reading challenge. Look out for details coming soon.
Our First Weeks
We have really enjoyed our first weeks at Nursery and everybody is
settling in really well. It has been Theme week throughout the school and we have been using books by Julia Donaldson to base our activities on. We have looked at The Gruffalo, Stickman, and Room on the Broom. Our activites have included drawing our own Gruffalos, Painting Stickmen with sticks and practising our counting by making a spell just like the witch in Room on the Broom.
This half term our topic is Superheroes. Look out for photgraphs of our learning. Have a look at our half term overview to see what we will be learning.
