This Week:   
Monday 16th December
WELL DONE NURSERY! Such fantastic performances this Friday.. I was so proud of the children as I am sure you are too. We had a busy week rehearsing our songs etc so I am so glad they showed their best singing to you! Next week we have lots of festivities coming up.. On Tuesday we will be having our class party so please feel free to dress your children in any party wear. Wednesday we have a puppeteer coming in to give the children a festive puppet show! Friday will be a big christmas treat as it is the last day of the term! 
In Maths we will be recapping shapes and using these to create patterns as they seem to love making them at the moment!!
In RE we will be continuing to think of the Christmas story. The children will have a go sequencing the story and seeing if they can describe the main parts. 
Supporting your children at home:
Talking to your child about school - Where do they hang their coat/put their bag? What do they do when they come in? (Registering their name) Where do they go to the toilet? What do they do if they are hurt? (Go to a teacher) Having these discussions will support your child to feel more settled in their school routines and have more understanding of what they do.
Please continue to remind you children to speak with me if they hurt themselves. We seem to be having a few bumps with the wet/slippery weather and children are not always coming to explain what happened. We are here to help!
Seasons! Get your children searching for Autumn or the beginning of Winter in the park or anywhere you go this half term. Talking about the changes in the weather and how this affects us - what do we wear now? Is it darker earlier? Is it hot? What colours are the leaves? Have all the leaves fallen off the trees? What animals do we see? 
Key Questions: 
What is a season? What season are we in/coming in to? What happens to some animals in Winter? How do we dress differently?
Class party on Tuesday so dress Christmas themed!! We will be dancing and playing games during the day. If you can please bring in some party food (no nuts) for the children to share during snack time to make it more fun! 
Reading books are given out every Thursday. This is for you to read at home and bring back each week to receive another (Please keep the books in their bookbags on the Thursday). 
Please label all clothes as we seem to have a few items being left behind that children do not recognise! Having spare clothes in your child's bag is also helpful in case of an accident. 
Please come and speak with me if you have any concerns about your child.
