Welcome to Elmtree Nursery
Summer Term 1
In our topic this term we will be learning lots of Nursery Rhymes. We be singing and acting them out focusing on the rhythm and rhyme. The rhymes we will be covering each week are; Humpty Dumpty, Incy Wincy Spider, Jack and Jill, Hey Diddle Diddle and Miss Polly had a Dolly.
In phonics, we will be learning the first six set of sounds s,a,t,p,i,n. We will be playing games and practise sounding out words beginning with these sounds.
We will continue with our ‘funky fingers’ session to encourage fine motor skills. The children will also practise writing letters in their name.
In our maths meetings we will continue to sing counting songs, order, count and match numbers using numicon. The children will be using positional language to describe the position of different characters in the nursery rhymes, such as, over, under, behind, on top and next to. We will also be naming and sorting 2D and 3D shapes.
Continue to Sing number songs with your child, e.g. ‘1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive’ and ‘Two little dicky birds’ etc.
Ask your child a to help to tidy their toys away, talk about other ways we can be helpful.
Provide lots of opportunities for your child to practise forming letters in their name. Support your child to use the pincer tripod grip.
Please continue to remind your child to wash their hands after using the toilet and before eating.
Encourage your child to take off and put on their coats, socks and shoes independently.
