Hello Everyone and a belated Happy New Year to you all! It is wonderful to see the children back after the Christmas break, eager to share their news and happy to be back with their friends. This week we have been doing lots of mark making, painting, printing and cutting and sticking. The children are also being encouraged to have a go at finding their name cards and have a go at writing their names – we will be doing lots of mark making, fine motor skills and simple handwriting activities this term to support this. To fit in with the spell of cold weather we have been playing with the small world arctic animals and learning about which animals live in the South and North pole and talking about why some animals are camouflaged. Our phoneme this week has been ‘n’ and next week we will be focussing on ‘m’. Next week we will continue to do activities related to Winter weather. In the next couple of days you should be recieving our Nursery newsletter for the Spring term, outlining the learning we will be covering this term. Have a good weekend and keep warm!
