Sunflower Class - Nursery

Sunflower Class FS1 Spring Term (First Half)

8th January - 9th February 2018

In the next half we will be making sure that all our children are really confident and happy with our routine at Nursery.  We follow a very similar format to FS2/Reception Class and this really prepares those that are starting school later this year to feel really happy and settled.

We also do this as we will be welcoming new children and their families and it is really important that we see the class working as a team and helping each other.

We will be concentrating on their well- being, making sure they feel included and that ‘we are all friends in Sunflower Class’.  We want the children to be as independent as possible therefore we will be particularly encouraging keeping warm and dressing ourselves with the appropriate clothing. (Easy Velcro shoes and slightly over-sized coats are a big help, as are elasticated waisted trousers and pinafores!) 

We want them to respect their learning environment and so encourage them to only work with a small amount and to return items as they found them.  We will be encouraging good scissor control and pencil grip, when they are ready, to that they can independently mark their own work and be proud of what they do.

Then, in the last 3 weeks before half term we will be learning about the birds that visit our playground and field.  What can we do to encourage them?  How will be observe them and what sort of things will they be doing as spring approaches?

Please see the weekly planning letters for information on what the children have been up to!
