Welcome to all of our new families. We have had a fantastic start to the year with 2 busy days of home visits before the children settled for their first few days at Nursery. Thank you so much for allowing us into your homes and for displaying your red balloons at the front of your houses so we could find you. We are so excited to have you all as part of our St Mary Magdalene Family and we look forward to working with you this year.
Take a look at these photos from our home visit days…
This is our timetable for the first half term as we settle the children and get them used to the routines of Nursery.
Reading Ralph and Book Betty
Our class friends ‘Reading Ralph’ and ‘Book Betty’ will be coming home with your child over the next few weeks. They will arrive in a book bag with a very special book. Each child is invited to share a Nursery rhyme with the special friend and to complete their page in the book. We have chosen to do this as a way of bridging the gap between home and school and also in recognition of the importance of reading with your child. Your child will also bring home a weekly reading book to share with you.
PE for Nursery will start after the October half term and we will make you aware before then of the day they will be required to wear their PE uniform. We go outside daily whatever the weather. As it gets colder your child will need a warm coat and hat. Please name these. We would also like to remind you that children must not wear jewellery. This will ensure they remain safe as they jump, climb, ride, run and explore.
Your child will have a weekly reading book and will also have homework which is set on our online platform, SeeSaw. We try to use homework as an opportunity for your child to share their learning with you and to practice new skills in a different way. We look forward to your responses on SeeSaw each week and often share these with the children in class as we celebrate their efforts.
This term our topic is 'My Nursery'. Through this topic we will be learning about our routines, our resources, our classmates and ourselves.
In maths we will be working with numbers to 5. We will practice recognising the amounts 1,2 and 3 automatically by showing that many fingers or recognising that many objects. We will be enjoying lots of number songs and rhymes together.
We will have a daily communication session where we will practice our listening and attention skills ready for phonics later this term.
We will add photos to this page soon to show some of our learning in action!
