Summer Term 2019
Welcome to F1! A warm welcome back to our returning children.... We have an exciting term ahead! We will be starting the term by settling the children back into our nursery after the Easter break and learning through our topics of 'Minibeasts' and 'Marvellous Magic'. We will be looking at a variety of minibeasts; learning about similarities and differences, habitats and life cycles.
We will be practising our fine motor skills, through 'Funky Fingers' sessions and through our day to day activities, including paintings and drawings. This term, we will also be trying to practise cutting with scissors, drawing pictures and recognising and writing our names. So please let us have a go at home!
We will be reading lots of books, including 'What the ladybird heard' and 'The Very Hunger Caterpillar'... We will be practising how to retell stories through our play. You may even hear us retelling stories at home!
This term some of us will be starting some exciting outdoor learning opportunities with an external Forest School team; whilst some of us will be following similar activities working outdoors with Mrs Langford.
WHAT AN EXCITING TERM WE HAVE IN STORE...
Please see the Termly Overview for more information...
Here are some pictures of some of the activities we do in F1.
Children have milk daily in F1, providing that parents and carers have signed up for this. Children are encouraged to bring a clean bottle of water to school daily and to take this home at the end of each session.
Also please make sure the bottle is clearly labelled with your child's name to avoid this being lost or taken home in error.
The morning children have PE on Wednesdays and the afternoon children have PE on Fridays. The 30 hour children will do PE and Yoga across the two days.
Please make sure your child wears suitable clothing such as joggers, shorts or trousers and tops that can’t catch on apparatus or when rolling on the floor. Also we encourage children to be independent, so please can they wear 'Velcro' or 'slip-on' shoes. Open-toe shoes must NOT be worn to avoid any potential accidents.
Also please make sure all jewellery is removed or earrings covered with a plaster.
Stay Safe on the Internet
Before your child has access to the internet please take a look at these rules about how to stay safe. During their time in F1, your child will meet Smartie the Penguin who will teach about how to use the internet safely.
