Hello and welcome to our new year in Oak Class.


We have Miss Howells who has come all the way from New Zealand and are also joined by Mrs Clark and Ms Morgan.


Our painting for this term is Animal Illusion by an Unknown Artist and our topic will be ‘Paws Jaws and Claws’ which will have us learning about different stories that a wide range of animals and their habitats e.g. The Little Red Hen and Morris the Mankiest Monster. We will also be developing our numeracy skills as well as introducing ideas of measurement such as height and weight.

This term of Nursery we are focus heavily on developing children’s independent skills and in forming relationships with peers.


We will also be heavily focusing on reading and mark marking, so please ensure that you read daily with your child at home and use the reading diaries to record your child’s achievements. Your child’s book will be changed every Friday.


We have started out PE sessions, every Thursday, and will be beginning to use our PE gear as the term goes on. We will keep you updated as to when we start using them so they can be taken home each week, washed and returned.


We follow a creative curriculum and place importance on children’s interests so please keep us updated with their interests from home. We are also moving into learning about dinosaurs and will be looking into other animals such as farm animals. Any experiences or photos are welcome.


Here are some of the ways you can help your child at home:


• - Reading with your child everyday

•- Ensuring homework is completed
