Weekly Update – 20.4.2018

We hope you all enjoyed the Easter break, we have loved looking at the photos you have put on Tapestry which we have shared with all the class.
This week we have been looking at and describing 2D shapes and have done a ‘shape hunt’ inside and outside and have hidden shapes in foam too!

As the weather has now got generally warmer – and if we are lucky it will continue, we would ask that you please ensure the children a named sunhat every day.

Please can you make sure your child has suitable sun protection whilst at Nursery. The recommendation is to use sun screen with a protection factor of 30 or above and a good layer should be applied before school. Some sunscreens give eight hour protection and these are particularly useful at school. If you choose to send some into school please give it to a member of the Nursery Team ensure it is named we will support your child applying it. We recommend the stick or roll-on types, NOT sprays.

We are also going to be creating a texture table inside and outside next week and would therefore be grateful for donations of any objects, both manmade or natural for us to explore…the more unusual the better!

Next week we will be continuing looking at 2D shapes and introducing 3D shapes. We will be turning our roleplay area into a 3D shape Supermarket and would be grateful for any donations of cardboard boxes for us to use particularly those which are pyramids, cubes, cylinders and hopefully some pyramids and triangular prisms!

Date for your diary:
