 Seasonal 

(Chinese New Year and Shrove Tuesday, Life cycle of a frog growing and gardening, signs of spring, Ramadan and Easter)

Our Wonderful World

Some books we will be reading are; Whatever Next, Way Back Home, The Runaway Pancake, non-fiction books about spring, Hello Mr World, Aliens Love Underpants, Roaring Rockets, Jaspers Beanstalk, Easter story books - Easter egg hunts.

If you have any books around the topics we are learning, fiction or non-fiction then we would love to share them with the children.

The children will also be concentrating on those key skills which incorporate their fine and gross motor skills and everyday their will be a maths and phonics focus.

Welcome to F1! A warm welcome back to our returning children and our new cohort that are joining us for the first time.... We have an exciting term ahead! We will be starting the term by settling the children into our nursery through our topics which will be 'All about me,' 'Seasonal changes' and our 'favourite stories' We will be talking about our families, and to help with this we ask that you provide us with a family photograph so that we can hang it on our tree at school. You can bring this in or email it to us using our emails on the F1 page.

 

We will be practising our fine motor skills, through 'Funky Fingers' sessions and through our day to day activities, including paintings and drawings. 

 

We will be reading lots of books, including 'The Gingerbread Man,' books about our families, Books about autumn and after half term books about celebrations.We will be practising how to retell stories through our play. You may even hear us retelling stories at home!

Here are some pictures of some of the activities we do in F1.

Helpful Reminders...

 

Drink Bottles...

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. 

 

PE...

 

All the children have PE on Wednesdays.The 30 hour children will do PE and Yoga.

 

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.
