Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

NURSERY

This Week:   Monday 16th July 2018
 
It has been a lovely last full week with the children.. I cannot believe we only have two more days with them! Thank you to all the parents who brought in food for International day on Friday.. The children had a great time and loved tasting all of the different foods! 
 
Monday is meet the teacher for children going to Holy Trinity reception classes. It is from 1:30-2:15. We will take the children in the afternoon Nursery to their classes (as it is within their nursery hours) so parents can pick/drop them up at normal times.
 
It is our last day on Tuesday and we are finishing with a party! Please bring in a named lunch box with party foods just for your child (no drinks required). Children will not need their book bags and they can wear party clothes if they would like. This will be during normal nursery hours. 
 
Home Thinking:
 
Reading books with your children is hugely beneficial and will support their language and understanding.. Discussing the book and asking your children questions about the characters or plot will help support your child's understanding further. The children are doing really well with their phonics at the moment, but to further develop their understanding you could spot things out on the road that begin with our letter of the week or get your child to cut things out of magazines that have that initial sound (also helps to build their fine motor skills!). 
 
If you could continue to practice counting with your children that would be great, as it will help to secure their knowledge of numbers (particularly up to 10). You could also help your child to recognize numbers (0-5). This could be done when walking down the road (door numbers/license plates/bus numbers) to make it more fun and give meaning to why we learn numbers.
