This week we have been learning all about how to keep safe. We began our week by reflecting on all the previous knowledge we had about safety and ways in which to keep safe. We all discussed that in an emergency we should tell an adult and call 999.
We took turns to go in small groups on a safety walk around the school. We looked out for fire exit signs, fire extinguishers and talked about how to recognise safe adults around the school. We also practiced in groups how to cross the road. We know we should always, STOP, LOOK, LISTEN, WAIT, LOOK AGAIN AND CROSS if clear.
We practiced a range of fine motor skills this week, holding a pencil to colour and using scissors safely to cut around shapes.
We began our first week of phonics and have learnt the sounds s,a,t,p. We practiced recognising these sounds around our environment, in our names, writing them in the air, on our friend’s backs and on whiteboards. Some of us even managed to write some simple CVC words!
Our first week in Reception and what a great start we have had. We have been so lucky to enjoy our new classroom space, finding out and exploring all the new places to play and resources to use. The children all looked so smart in their uniform on Tuesday and so far have all managed to come back with their own jumpers, so that’s a great start! All the children have settled in so well, meeting the teachers and beginning to understand the new routines of Reception at Tudor school.
We look forward to all that this year has yet to come, making new friends and learning new things.
Welcome back after a lovely long Spring Break. We hope you have all had a great time!
Please find attached some information about our Nursery reading mornings.
Every week, on a Thursday (beginning next week) we would like to invite you to stay for 15 minutes from 8.45am-9.00am to share a book with your child. This will be an opportunity for you to read to your child in their school setting in an effort to encourage the children to have a love of books and reading. You could bring books from home, read a book from the classroom or share the book in their book bag. We understand that you may not always be able to stay, so please be assured that in this event a member of staff will read with your child.
Many thanks for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you next Thursday.
The Nursery Team.
Next week Nursery would like to make telescopes. Please could we have any kitchen roll tubes that you have finished with? Many thanks.

Making Rainbow Fish!
As part of our animals topic we have been studying the story 'Rainbow Fish'
This half term, we have been learning all about animals in foundation stage!
We had a very special visitor come in and she introduced us to some of her friends. We learnt all about how to take care of them and talked about their textures and habitats.
In reception, we have been thinking about the word habitat and what it means.
We learnt all about the different habitats dinosaurs liked to live in and even created our own!
Once our habitat was completed, we got to play with it.
On Monday monday morning, Nursery and Reception came in to school and found an egg and two dinosaurs in our investigation area!
We used the books in the investigation area to find out more about our dinosaurs and where they could have come from.
We also thought of some describing words to tell people what our class dinoosaurs looked like, and some of us even wrote them down!
