This term we will be busy learning about Superpowers and Superheroes! Our topic will enable us to think about the significant people in our lives and the legacy they leave for us. We will identify different jobs in our family and the local community. In art-based/creative activities, we will draw, collage and paint simple representations of minibeasts, including symmetrical paintings of butterflies. To develop our musical skills, we will continue learning new rhymes and songs, to develop melodic shape.

Home Reading- All children in Nursery have a clear communication folder which holds their reading diary and weekly books. Children receive 2 books weekly: one is chosen by the children to encourage and foster the love of books and the second is designed to support children to develop early reading behaviours. (See 'How to support my child in early reading' below). Please return the communication folder to school each Tuesday with the reading diary and 2 books, these will be returned to you on Wednesday. We strongly encourage children to read at least 3 times weekly at home.

PE - Nursery have PE on Wednesdays (morning and day children) and Thursdays (afternoon and day children). Please send your child to school in their kit on these days - PE lessons may be outdoors (weather permitting) so you may wish to consider your child having a tracksuit for the day. Please make sure all earrings are removed or covered with tape before school on these days.
