St. James' CE Primary School

Welcome To Nursery

 

Welcome to the Nursery, as you will have noticed there have been lots of changes over the summer holiday. There are now 3 nursery rooms named Rome, Florence and Venice. The class names are inspired by the Italian 'Reggio Emilia' approach we have adopted. Your children have settled in very well, and have produced some wonderful pieces of work. 

This term we have been looking at the book 'Splish, splash, splosh' a book all about water. As part of our water project we have been exploring the sea, rain and rainbows and the domestic use of water. The children have enjoyed learning some new songs such as I Hear Thunder, Rain, Rain Go Away and I Can Sing a Rainbow. In addition we have been learning some new Makaton signing to sign and sing along with I Can Sing a Rainbow. 

 Children have also been learning a sound of the week starting on 'Phase 1' phonics with the letter 's'. Thank you to everyone for bringing in anything which begins with the sound of the week which enables a discussion for the children in class.  Also a massive thank you for continuing to update the home-school journal each week, there has been some amazing work in there keep up the hard work. 

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Next term's topic will be bears, and as part of that topic we are holding a 'build a Bear' workshop for parents and children on the Wednesday 8th November. However, we need material to mmake the bears. If you have any old shirts which you no longer want, we would very much appreciate if you donate them to our workshop. 

Nursery parents evening is on the 7th November, starting at 3:15, look out for the sign-up sheets.
