Welcome to Acorns
Teacher- Mrs. N. Bates
Teaching Assistants- Mrs. L. Dutton, Miss. R. McDonald
This summer we have had some exciting work done in Nursery to create a new 'Quiet Room'. The learning environment is exciting and stimulating for the children and they have had a wonderful time exploring it so far.
We are settling in our new children and getting to know each other. We are learning the new routines and expectations, as well as making new friends. We are learning to sit in a group and learn skills such as putting on our coats, recognising our name, drawing pictures, tidying up after ourselves and listening to each other.
We are sharing lots of stories linked to colours such as Brown Bear, Brown Bear, stories about Spot the dog, stories about Elmer, Wow said the Owl, The Princess and the Wizard, How to Make a Rainbow. We are sharing books with flaps and simple predictable structures to encourage children to participate.
We are sharing lots of rhymes that have actions to engage the children and encourage active participation.
We are also learning simple number songs to develop accurate counting skills.
