Welcome to Nursery Ruby

This term, through our topics, Ourselves, Harvest and Aliens we will focus on:

Developing communication and listening skills and learn how to follow our school rules and become more familiar with our daily routines

Establishing independent good self-care practices such as washing hands after going to the toilet, looking after our belongings (shoes, coats, book bags)

Exploring mark making through various media (paintbrush and water, sensory trays)

Developing good pencil grip through our fine motor skills activities

Increasing our knowledge of numbers and shapes through songs, rhymes and games; counting activities happen daily

Building on the children’s enjoyment of reading familiar stories and learn how to handle books appropriately

Every week your child will take a library book home to read, share with you.  Please write down any comments in your child’s communication book or simply draw a smiley face to let us know that your child has read his/her book.  Initially their book will be changed weekly and we will review this after the October half-term.

Our PE session is on Fridays with Mr Rowlands.  Your child will need to wear comfortable jogging bottoms or leggings, a plain t-shirt and trainers (no shoe laces) to come to school on that day. The children will stay in their sports clothes for the rest of the session.

Punctuality is very important as Nursery starts their welcome activities as soon as they are settled.

Please remember to use your child’s yellow home link book to communicate with us.

Please follow us on Twitter where we will post regular picture updates on the children’s activities. This will help to start a conversation between you and your child.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to a fabulous year in Nursery

Mrs Chuimi, Mrs Carberry, Mrs Mitzman
