Summer 2 - What we are learning


Attached below is the plan for the children's last term in Ash Nursery.  As you will see, our final topic is "The World Around Us" and will cover mini beasts and other creatures of the world.  The children have already begun engaging in the activities and will spend every Wednesday until the end of term taking part in Forest School where they will develop their current skills as well as learning new skills. 


The children are currently accessing phase 2 and phase 3 phonics and you can help your child at home with their learning by working through the phonics video which is on Nursery's Google Classroom page.  


Over the next few weeks, we will be preparing the children for their transition into Reception and this will include maintaining and managing expectations as well as continuing their journey to become independent learners.  We are continuing to practice name writing and please encourage name writing and recognition as much as possible outside school.  

Have a look at our amazing learning so far.



Achievements by the end of Summer 2 Term


Attached is a document containing the aims of what our children will be meeting by the end of their last term in Nursery.  Please have a look at this and help your children achieve these at home.





Aims & Achievements

Our End of Summer 1 Term Expectations


By the end of the summer 1 term, each child should be able to independently carry out the tasks contained in the attached document.  Please support your child to enable their learning and continue with their independence. 



Reading Books


We will be sending home reading books for your children to access.  Please read with your child regularly, talking about the pictures, asking them to make predictions and encouraging them to speak in full sentences.  


Please note that books will be sent home in bookbags every Wednesday along with a reading record which needs to be completed with short comments in order for your child's book to be changed.  Please ensure that all books are returned every Wednesday.   This enables us to quarantine them safely. 


We will not be able to change your child's book if you have not returned the previous book or have not completed the reading record. 


Welcome Ash Nursery


The children in Ash Nursery have completed their first week at Parkway.  They have settled in really well and have already begun their learning based on our 'All About Me' topic. 


We are learning to look after our resources and have managed the routines and expectations amazingly.  The children are beginning to join in with our carpet-time activities and have enjoyed exploring their new learning environment with enthusiasm.


We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead!
