Spring Term 2019
WELCOME TO NURSERY-Where learning is fun everyday!!!!
With.....Mr R.White Nursery Class Teacher
EYFS Manager & Assistant Headteacher Message
Here in EYFS at Brickhouse we work very hard to achieve only the highest standards for each child. We believe each child is unique and we believe children achieve best when they have an all rounded balanced curriculum-both indoors and outdoors and when parents and staff work closely together. Should you have any unanswered questions about the running of EYFS please do come and see me...
Quality Mark Award
In November 2015 our Early Years Unit was awarded the Quality Mark for the first time. Our Assistant Head, EYFS team, staff, children and parents are delighted to announce that our Quality Mark Award was renewed in December 2018.
Please be assured our team are always available and are highly trained to ensure the children settle as quickly as possible. Children manage change in different ways and it can be emotional for them but we can guarantee that after a few weeks your child we be very happy and settled-please do be patient with us!
What's Going on in Spring 2?
Our main priority for Spring 2 is that our children remain happy, settled and enjoy school life. We spend a lot of time training the children; this includes encouraging them to become independent through tidying up, managing toilet needs, self-care and doing many things for themselves. Your child has now been allocated a family group with friends and they are either a Brilliant Butterfly or a Busy Bee. Please see a member of staff if you are unsure which family group your child is in. Children meet in these groups each morning to begin their learning.
Our next topic is 'Dinosaurs' and 'Easter'- We will talk about describing dinosaurs, finding out facts and encouraging the children to discuss what they can see. We will then move into different Easter.
In Literacy we will continue to focus on name writing and letter sounds. We will share Dinosaur books and stories and do lots of activities based around them.
In Mathematics we will continue to focus on number recognition, counting and shapes.
What can you do at home?
Ask your child to identify and attempt to write their names.
Practise holding a pencil and using it correctly.
Count numbers out loud
Your child will also access indoor and outdoor learning daily....please ensure your child has the appropriate clothing for outdoor weather and a pair of wellies available at all times. Once a day children will be able to free-flow across EYFS and access both the Nursery and Reception; as we work closely together and cover the same topics.
We focus heavily on Salley/Phonics, Literacy and Mathematics here at Brickhouse and we do this through covering all other areas of learning too.....this year we will be working closely with Reception to ensure that we can meet all our children's needs even more closely.
During this half-term, every day your child will experience daily carpet time sessions for Salley/Phonics, Literacy, and Mathematics, Number Fun and Name Writing.
Sharing stories is important! Please share stories at home with your child as often as you can...
-If you would like a copy of our daily routine please ask a member of the team!
-If you know a topic we should cover - please tell us....
-Up to date information will be on display in our cloakroom area-please pop in and find out what's going on...
-Any further questions how you can help your child at home, please ask Mr White.
-Have you had your What's coming up leaflet?
Learning in our school is so important every day-so please ensure your child is in school on time each day to learn and progress.
We do hope your child continues to enjoy their time in Nursery......If you have any concerns please see Mr White
