Welcome back to our returners and welcome to our new Ladybirds. We hope you had a great holiday and we would like to wish you all a happy new year.
This week Ladybird class have been very busy, they have been welcoming our new children and showing them all the wonderful things we have in our nursery. This term are topic focus is “Wonderful world”. This will give the children the opportunity to learn all about the different animals all over the world and their characteristics and habitats We will be starting with Arctic animals as the weather has turned very cold. The children will be watching videos about the arctic and the type of animals that live there. This will give everyone the opportunity to use this as a focal point for developing our speaking and listening skills.
We are also focusing on the number one. This will help the children understand the concept of one, they will also have the opportunity each week to make marks to represent the number. which will support the development of holding a pen correctly and learning hand eye coordination. Children need to know how to hold writing implements correctly to enable them to write and draw.
