Welcome to Nursery Ruby and Opal

We started Spring 1 with a very exciting topic: dinosaurs! The children worked together to build a dinosaur cave and will explore the outdoor area where they will be building dens for their dinosaurs.  This is enabling them to develop their personal and emotional skills and promote one of our Hammond Values: teamwork.

The children are learning to say the incredibly long and unusual names of some dinosaurs. To link with Understanding of the World we will be looking at dinosaur’s habitats and human habitats. We are also enjoying exploring our dino swamp!

This term Nursery will develop their communication and language skills further through our Talk for Writing activities. We will explore The Enormous turnip, The 3 Little pigs and Goldilocks and the 3 Bears.

Later in the term we are lucky to have the Booster Cushion Theatre performing Goldilocks and the Bears for Early Years.

In the second half-term we will explore space and will be reading Whatever Next! The children are sure to let the imagination soar as they pretend to be astronauts  and space explorers.

 We appreciate your support in sending in books and toys for your child to share with their classmates. As well as stories we will be reading non-fiction books to find out information and facts about dinosaurs and space.

We look forward to seeing you at our next Stay and Play.
