Celebrations and new friends

Friday 04 February 2022

Over the last few weeks, we have welcomed some new friends into our classroom and it’s lovely to see them doing so well. The children who have been with us since the Autumn term have been really good role models for our new starters and they have helped them to settle into the routines of the classroom very quickly.

This week in Nursery, we have been using Chinese New Year as inspiration for our learning. We have looked at some of the family traditions involved in preparing for the new year and the celebrations which are important through the season. The children have made their own decorated red envelopes (which helped them to exercise their fine motor skills) and they will be completing their dragon heads over the coming week. The children have also been making comparisons between objects in relation to weight and have used mathematical language such as: ‘heavier than’ and ‘lighter than’ when describing the items they are holding. Next week, we will continue looking at ‘number two’ and its position on a number line.


Please remember to name all of your child’s clothing as well as their water bottle.
