Welcome to all our new Nursery pupils! We hope you are keen to start your learning journey at Rainbow Nursery!
In Nursery this half term, we are starting the ‘Marvellous Me’ topic! Our Power of Reading book is ‘Stick Man’. We will also read other stories such as ‘The Colour Monster’ and ‘Lost and Found’ to talk about emotions and friendships. Through these books, pupils will learn to use illustrations to retell stories. Pupils will also be learning to discriminate general sounds in the environment. This will raise children’s awareness of the sounds around them and develop their listening skills.
Linking to our Power of Reading texts, pupils will learn to talk about people in their families and the things they do with their special people. Pupils will have the opportunity to re-enact what happens at home at the Home Corner with their peers.
Within the Nursery, the role-play areas this half term will be a Doctor’s Surgery and a Campsite for pupils to re-enact what happened in the Power of Reading story as well as their prior experiences at the doctor’s. Pupils will use various props and there will be mark-making and maths learning opportunities across the role-play areas.
As part of their learning within Expressive Arts and Design, pupils will have plenty of opportunities to draw and collage pictures of themselves and family members through different materials and media such as paint and other natural materials to create different portraits.
We are excited for our first half term of fun learning! Any questions, please feel free to ask any member of the Nursery Team at the door.
