Outdoor learning is very important to a child's development and helps develop physical skills, creativity, problem-solving and promotes positive wellbeing. Being outdoors supports the holistic development of children and allows them to work collaboratively, appreciate nature and the world around them and builds their confidence and self-esteem through risk taking and exploring. We enjoy outdoor learning whatever the weather so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately, for example on hot days please send a sun hat and apply sun cream before your child comes to school, and if it is raining please ensure they have a raincoat.
Our main form of contact is via Class Dojo, otherwise you can email us on : email@example.com
Please follow our instagram page @springwood_prm to see what wonderful learning we have been doing each week.
Our central idea this term is 'Water, Water, Everywhere'.
In this project we will look at the importance of water to ourselves as humans, living things and the planet. We will be planting and growing, observing cause and effect and considering the many ways in which we use water. We will also look at the ocean and learn about different sea creatures!
Languages, Literacy and Communication
Some of the stories we will be focusing on this half term include:
We will practise holding books the correct way up, turning pages individually and recognising the title, author, picture, blurb and spine of a book. We will also be discussing the characters, the main events and the sequence of the stories and talking about our favourite part of the story and why. As we will hear these stories lots of times, we will start to join in with retelling and sequencing the story.
Maths and Numeracy
Maths is everywhere and our Nursery environment provides children with many rich opportunities for applying mathematical skills in everything they do, for example building, counting, number recognition, shape, problem solving, capacity and the list goes on!
This term we will continue to develop our counting skills singing simple number songs, including:
Why not have a listen to the songs and see if you can sing them at home?
Click on the picture to sing along! Can you show the number on your fingers?
We will be practising counting a group of items using 1:1 finger correspondence, and counting a smaller group of objects from a larger group and knowing when to stop.
We will be looking at and discussing the properties of 2D shapes and using appropriate language to describe them.
