This Months Topic:
This month’s topic is ‘All About Me’. We will be doing lots of fun things including
turning the home corner into a Clinic, playing a guessing game with Guess the Baby and we will be doing self portraits and talking lots about ourselves and our homes.
Our colours this month will be Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. Our shapes will be Circle, Square, Triangle and Rectangle.
These will all have specific weeks so keep an eye on the planning board to see when
they are being covered.
Book of Interest: We will be looking at lots of different books this month including The Alfie Stories and The Little Princess Stories. We will also look at books telling us all about our bodies and developing our senses.
For our storybooks we will be doing a small display for each book showing key
features from each story.
Please remember to sign your child in and out of the nursery.
Please ensure that if you are in the habit of putting the catch on the door as you leave, make sure you release it before you close the door. On a number of occasions over the last few weeks it has been left on and this could be a security risk.
Anyone could gain entry to the nursery and the children who can reach the lower
handle could try to get out.
