This term our topic is based on 'Stories and Fairy Tales'
We will be sharing stories in nursery and in our Story Wood!
The books we have chosen include:
The Three Little Pigs
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
The Gingerbread Man
Jack and the Beanstalk
The Three Billy Goats Gruff
We will make sure we share photographs of us enjoying our fantastic activities as we work through this topic !
Last half term our topic was 'Space'
We looked at a range of stories all about Space. We enjoyed Aliens Love Underpants, Whatever Next and How to Catch a Star. The children loved building rockets and creating some fancy pants for the aliens!
Although we do topic based activities, many of the activities are based around the children's own
interests, which can be seen on our interests board in class.
We also thought about keeping our bodies healthy with the help of our Startwell Characters
(http://startwellbirmingham.co.uk/). Each day we have rolling snack, meaning the children are able to
have fruit, milk and water as and when they choose to throughout the session.
We love singing songs in Pre - School, some of our favourites are:
Walking through the Jungle
Baa Baa Black Sheep
The Wheels on the Bus
I dig my garden
Five cheeky monkeys swinging in the tree
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Hickory Dickory Dock
We do P.E. every Thursday. Children do not get changed for P.E. however we would ask that you send
your children in appropriate clothing and footwear to take part in physical activities everyday as the
children are always active outside.
If you wish to speak to one of the teachers in Nursery, please feel free to catch one of us when you
bring your child to nursery or if you require a longer period of time to talk, please make an
Spare clothes, nappies and wipes should be kept on your child's peg at all times.
Bringing your child to school in wellies or leaving some next to their peg as well as providing a warm coat would also be beneficial as the children love to explore outside whatever the weather.
