This half-term our theme is:
All About Me
Over the next few weeks our class will begin a new topic, called ‘All About Me’. This unit is part of the Early Years programme of the International Primary Curriculum. This curriculum sets out clearly what children should learn in four groups or ‘strands’ — these are called ‘Independence and Interdependence’, ‘Communicating’, ‘Exploring’, and ‘Healthy Living’. The activities which have been planned will cover these strands in the following ways:
Independence and Interdependence
During these first few weeks the children will learn a great deal about relationships and how to get along with lots of new people. They will be introduced to activities to develop new skills and have opportunities to play alone, alongside and with other children.
The children will be introduced to books, stories and rhymes. They will be involved in counting activities as well as some of the processes of art and craft. We will sing and learn some simple rhymes.
Throughout these early days the children will learn about playing with materials such as sand and paint.
The children will begin to learn about paying attention and concentrating as well as expressing emotions and emotional needs. Each day will bring opportunities to develop the ability to cope with change.
We will begin this theme on Monday by having a welcome morning. Please help us to be ready to welcome your child by sending us a recent photograph of him or her. You can also email a recent photograph to the Nursery email address on:
We welcome any support or suggestions which you may have!
