Nursery Noticeboard

Week Beginning 1.10.18

We have begun our Foundation Phase Profile. This is an initial assessment of your child’s learning with regards to Personal and Social Skills; Language, Literacy and Communication; Mathematical Development and Physical Development. It is necessary in order to inform future planning to develop your child’s learning. Please be reassured that the children will have no idea that they are being assessed and our activities involve a series of observations through play. These observations/activities will run until half-term and then we will share the results with you during 1:1 Parent Meetings.

We are introducing the children to our “Check In” and “Check Out” System this week. This system operates throughout the whole the school and it involves the children identifying how they feel when they come to school and how they feel when they leave. This gives the adults working in the class an opportunity to identify and solve any concerns. In Nursery, the children will be given a flower on a stick. The centre of the flower will have a photograph of their face. Each child will then put their flower in a flower pot. We have 4 flower pots: happy, sad, tired, excited. We will also be introducing simple Welsh Vocabulary to describe their feelings:

  • hapus-happy
  • trist-sad
  • wedi blino-tired
  • cyffroes-excited

Please could you also return any completed photo and pick up consent forms if you have not already done so, if you need another copy please ask.

We would like to remind everyone of our “Open Door Policy” and therefore if you have any concerns, please come and see us. The class Dojo is also up and running if you need to contact us.

The Nursery Team are: Miss Nina Cartwright, Mrs Sue Duffy,Miss Sophie Wright, Mrs Karen Dodd, Miss Ruth James, Mrs Diane Thomas and Mr Alex Davies

Please could you also return any other completed consent forms if you have not already done so.

There is a lot of lost property in nursery, please come and have a look in the box to see if there is anything that belongs to your child. If it is not claimed by the end of the week it will be put in the school’s main lost property which is situated at the entrance by the hall.

Our focus story has been The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle. After reading the story, we asked the children for suggestions as to what activities they would like to do. We then incorporated some of these ideas into the planning and provision. This week we changed some of the activities and are finishing others:

  • Painting an animal from the story and having a go at colour mixing to produce the colours needed. We are encouraging the children to talk about what they are doing throughout the process.
  • Using the playdough as cement and building with the wooden blocks.
  • Making a safe place for the insects to hide using the natural materials in the sand.
  • Dressing up as an animal from the story and going for tea in the cafe.
  • Looking at pictures of different insects and books about insects on the investigation table. Drawing and writing about insects and telling our friends.
  • Looking after our potatoes by watering them and also looking for bugs in our mud kitchen/gardening area.

We are still using the Garden Centre outdoors. The children (AM) are learning to recognise 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins and to use them to pay for items.

LITERACY:

  • RWI (Morning Nursery)-Our sound of the week is “w”. Your child will come home with a  poster displaying the sound and suggested activities will be on the back of the poster to help with their learning. Please display the poster where your child will see it every day. You could even make a book which contains all of the posters. Remember to practise some FRED TALK games. If you cannot find your sheet, please come and see me for a new one.
  • The children have been practicing to write their names and other letters in the big tray of foam.
  • Please encourage your child to write their own name at home. Some children can write it independently and some children will need to copy all/part of it.

NUMERACY (Morning Nursery):

  • We are continuing to practise recognising numbers to 10, counting forwards and counting backwards 10-0. When children are confident with this, we move onto counting in groups of 2, 5 and 10.
  • We are practising recognising 3D shapes-cube, cuboid, cylinder and pyramid. we are also asking the children to describe the shapes-eg. How many squares/rectangles/circles can you see? Are the sides straight/curved?
  • We have also started to learn how to write the numbers as well as recognising them.
  • Also, we have started to try ‘estimating’ up to 5 objects. For example : how many apples in the bowl? How ,many cups on the tray? This could easily be practiced at home, but remember ‘estimate’ don’t count!

Throughout this term the children will be working with Numicon. Our aim is to identify Numicon shapes to 10, order shapes to 10 and compare sizes of numbers. When the children can order Numicon shapes to 10, they will practise matching numerals to the correct Numicon shape. We continue to count forwards, backwards and from different starting places on a daily basis, in order to develop understanding of the order of numbers. We also use the terms “one more/less” when working with Numicon.

ICT/Numeracy:

We are using the Top Marks Website in class to practise counting games. You can try this at home on a tablet/laptop/PC.

Other activities/choices during Active Learning this week:

  • Practising threading small beads onto laces.
  • Sound Sacks-Sorting items beginning with the sound shown on the front of the sack.
  • Small World Play
  • Toy Shop & Winter Cafe-Practising recognising coins and using “Ga i…..?” (“Can I have…?”) to ask for something.
  • Reading Tedi Twt yn Siopa to one of the teddies-Reading through pictures.
  • Making pictures using a variety of 2D shapes of different colours and sizes.
  • Sand-Filling containers using funnels and jugs. Practising key vocabulary-full/empty, heavy/light, more/less
  • Practising Fred Talk with outdoor games-Fred is a toy frog that can only speak in sounds. He cannot say words and so the children have to blend the sounds together for him in order to say the word for him. Fred Talk teaches children to blend sounds orally. Eg. Fred says h-o-p. Say the sounds to the children individually and see if they can respond correctly.
  • Circle games outdoors
  • Builders’ Yard
  • Bikes and scooters

As always, if you have any questions/concerns, please come and see me.

Kind regards,

Cath Fox

Remember, Inset Day on Thursday-no school for children

This week we are continuing with the story, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children are becoming wonderful storytellers, using a variety of actions and voices.

We are introducing the children to our “Check In” and “Check Out” System this week. This system operates throughout the whole the school and it involves the children identifying how they feel when they come to school and how they feel when they leave. This gives the adults working in the class an opportunity to identify and solve any concerns. In Nursery, the children will be given a flower on a stick. The centre of the flower will have a photograph of their face. Each child will then put their flower in a flower pot. We have 4 flower pots: happy, sad, tired, excited.

You may notice that a Builders’ Yard is being set up outdoors. This is in preparation for our next story, The Three Little Pigs. The area will be “ultra messy” and the children will be wearing our waterproof gear when playing in this area. Please can you provide them with a pair of wellies, clearly labelled with their name, if you haven’t done so already.
