Carle Class ( Nursery - 2020/21)
Hello and welcome to Carle class. Myself and Mrs Yule look forward to working with both parents and children throughout the year and sharing our fantastic experiences together.
Autumn topic 1
Our topic this half term is 'Who lives in my house?'. The children will take part in discussions about their own family and experiences as well as become familiar with some buildings and features in the locality. The children will also have time to settle into their new environment and become familiar with new routines and boundaries.
Autumn topic 2
Our topic this half term is 'where does the day go at night?. The children will learn about what happens when we go to sleep and the reasons why we sleep. They will also learn about shadows and what kind of noises we may hear at night. The children will be exposed to question and be encouraged to ask their own and make links.
Children will take home a book every Friday to share at home. Enjoy sharing the book together, look at the front cover, what is the title? who is the author? As you share the book, encourage your child to turn the pages and talk together about what you can see and what is happening using the pictures as prompts. Reading and sharing books will help towards your child's learning and development, as well as building foundations for later reading and writing. Please return the book by the following Wednesday.
During the year we will also be looking at books written by Eric Carle, this is our class name. He has written some lovely books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar. If you would like to listen to his stories at home you can find these on youtube.
Rhyme of the week
Every Monday your child will take home a rhyme that they will be learning in class. Please practice this rhyme at home as this will help towards communication, language and literacy development.
Talk Talk task
Children will receive a 'talk talk' sheet every half term. This will consist of a weekly question that you can discuss as a family. Please write down anything your child says and bring it back into school once completed so we can enjoy a lovely circle time together sharing our thoughts and ideas.
If you have any questions please come in at the start or end of our nursery sessions. There is also a parent information board in class which you can find further information.
