This half term our theme is ‘celebrating’. We have already explored the 5th of November— ‘Guy Fawkes’, bonfire night and fireworks. The following week we will learn about the India festival of light ‘Diwali’ or Deepavali. This is one of the biggest Indian festivals. It is commonly celebrated by decorating homes with lamps and candles, bursting of firecrackers and sparklers, eating sweets and other mouth watering dishes, observing religious rituals, wearing new dresses and sending wishes and gifts to one another. We then have an exciting week celebrating 'The World's Rhyming' Week ~ 18th~22nd November, 2019. Then going into a week of 'Space' and then to finish of the 'magic of Christmas'.
Home work challenge:
To develop perseverance and independent skills within health and self-care. Please see attached sheets. You may just want to really focus on one or two of these areas, as they are all key skills. Staff would love to know how your child is getting on.
Talk is crucial to effective learning not just in the early years but throughout children's education. A 'talk-rich' environment is one where children's level of talk and vocabulary are accurately assessed and opportunities are created for further development and enhancement both indoors and out. Staff in Nursery are dedicated to help all children become effective talkers and Anita is attending a Language for Learning course which will provide a multitude of practical strategies to support children and staff. Parents can also help their children at home by turning off background noise, use short and simple sentences, look at them when they are talking to you and wait for them to finish talking before you speak.

Nursery's inspirational person is:
Beatrix Potter was an English writer, illustrator, natural scientist and conservationist best known for her children's books featuring animals, such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Jemima Puddle Duck, The Tale of Mrs Tiggy Winkle and The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin, to name just a few. To find out more about this inspirational lady why not visit https://www.peterrabbit.com/play/
The children will be learning about the difference between an author and an illustrator, as they begin to ascribe meaning to their marks.
Enjoy stories and talk about the illustrations.
Learn more about their natural environment through our outdoor learning and Forest School activities.
Become scientist through exploration within play.
