Nursery – Mrs Shevloff and Miss Spencer

We are excitied about our new topic and we know that it will be lots of fun!

All that glitters is not gold! Is it shiny? Does it sparkle? It’s time to find out more about materials and their properties.

This half term, we’ll hunt for missing treasure and discuss whether the treasure we find is shiny or not. We’ll watch how shiny objects catch the Sun when we hang them outside, and we’ll group and sort different objects. From what are they made? For what are they used? Looking at different types of mirrors, we’ll investigate how our reflections look different in each one. We’ll also find out about stars and how to clean tarnished copper coins. In literacy, we’ll sing and play triangles along to the nursery rhyme, Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star*, and we’ll use tools to write letters and numbers in foil. Using our maths skills, we’ll *write numbers in sequins and build structures out of shiny 2-D and 3-D shapes, naming the shapes and sorting them by size. Getting creative, we’ll become glitter monsters as we explore the texture and appearance of glitter, bake a batch of firework cookies, make space rocks and mould twinkle lamps out of clay.

Due to the restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we are not able to offer our traditional open morning for prospective parents and pupils of our Reception class for September 2021. Instead, we have put together a virtual tour and introduction to our school and our Early Years Foundation Stage Unit. It is posted under our Early Years Foundation Stage page on the website, which can be found under the 'Our School' tab.

We are also hosting a virtual Question and Answer session for prospective parents via Google Meet. The meeting will be held at 2:30pm on Thursday, 12th November and can be accessed via this link: meet.google.com/abi-hiqp-vfp
