PHONICS 

In nursery, we have started to learn our set 1 phonics sounds. We follow the RWI scheme for phonics. In RWI, each sound has a picture card and a rhyme to help write the sound. Your child will be familiar with letter names from learning the alphabet song. In phonics lessons we talk about the sound and the rhyme to help us write that sound. In nursery, we will be focusing on the children pronouncing the sound correctly. The children will be given opportunities to mark make and form the sound throughout their play e.g. painting in glitter, writing with chalk, forming the sound with loose items

The children are currently working on Fred games- How to teach Alliteration 

 

To start with the focus in alliteration games is for children to just be aware that there is something interesting about the sounds they are hearing. So if you say to a child ‘Look at the ssslithery, sssneaky sssnake sss’, they can hear there is something exciting and unusual going on with the way you are saying the words.

 

When this awareness grows through time, you then hope children will start to talk about the sounds they can hear, e.g. ‘s’ in that example, and be able to experiment a bit themselves, following an adult’s lead.

 

The next step, is making up alliterative ‘silly phrases’, such as ‘map mip mop mup’.

 

The final step is coming up with real alliterative words like ‘terrible tiger’.

During the February half term and the week beginning 28th February , we are hosting a challenge for our Nursery called ‘Extreme Reading 2022’ to help promote a LOVE for reading. We would like children to get a photo of themselves reading their books in unusual and out-of-the-ordinary places. An example could be up a climbing frame or on a trampoline (children have been asked to be mindful of being safe and to check with an adult first).  The more creative – the better! We would love for families to get involved as well so please feel free to join in. Children can bring in a hard copy of their photographs or send a copy on dojo over the next few weeks. All of the pictures will be added to what we hope will be a fantastic display of our children reading in a whole host of weird and wonderful places.

Thank you for your support.

The Brush Bus tooth brushing scheme is being launched in EYFS in order to increase exposure to fluoride among the 2–5-year-old children. Fluoride toothpaste is an effective method of reducing tooth decay and its benefits can be maximized by having additional time to brush your child’s teeth in school.

 

By introducing a time in the school day where children brush their teeth in school it is proven that that children are much more enthusiastic about having their teeth brushed at home (with an adult supervision). The aim is to improve children’s oral health and self-care habits and give every child the best start in life as decaying teeth can impact speech and language and future dental development.

Floor books 

Each week we carry out a “Floor book” activity with your child.
These are scrap books that are individual to your child and highlight key achievements. Photographs of key events in class and exemplar pieces of work, mainly done independently by your child, are included in this book. Parents/carers and families are encouraged to send in pieces of work, certificates and photographs that can be included in the book to create a whole picture of the child. These books provide key evidence in support of their development milestones, which creates a record of attainment for your child.
These books are something we want the children to be proud of and take ownership of. They are also sent home at the end of the year for you to treasure forever.

Schemas

Understand what is behind your children’s play and help them by observing patterns of behaviour or “schemas”.

Schemas are patterns of behaviour that appear through children’s play.

Schemas are an important part of children’s development and knowing about these play urges can help you understand why children are so determined to do things in a certain way. For more information you can watch this short video.
