This Half Term – 21st February to 25th March

We hope you all had a lovely half term break!

During this half term we will be exploring traditional and familiar stories and nursery rhymes.

We can create the houses for the 3 little pigs, mix porridge for the three bears , cut out our own paper dolls or create a map for what the ladybird heard. We can wash Incy out of the water spout, make Miss Polly’s dolly better and I’m sure baking gingerbread men will be a popular activity.

With so many lovely books and rhymes to choose from our learning opportunities are endless.

We will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday, 3rd March. Everyone is welcome to dress up as their favourite book/character (I’m sure there will be some staff costumes too!)

Reading together has so many benefits – expanding vocabulary, developing understanding, increasing self confidence and supporting children to gain a wealth of knowledge. It can also ignite creativity, spark curiosity and stimulate the imagination, this will lead to so many other areas of learning and development. Nursery rhymes provide the children with a fun opportunity to start to hear the rhythm and sounds in words, a great early literacy skill.

At the end of the term there is a special date we will be preparing for, but until then it will remain a secret!

Our door is always open, just ask if you’d like to speak to one of the team.
