Welcome to Nursery!

We would like to welcome back all of our children and families and extend a warm welcome to those families who are joining us at Brandhall. It has been wonderful to be a part of the children’s learning journey so far and we look forward to watching the children grow and progress during the coming half term.
This half term our focus text is ‘The Little Red Hen’, the children will be learning to tell the story using both words and ‘talk4write’ actions. Ask your child if they can tell you about the story they have been learning. Many of the opportunities provided during ‘learning through play’ also centre on the story. Immersing the children in the text in this way helps develop their writing skills as it provides them with ideas when they are mark making. We will also be learning how to make bread following step-by-step instructions, in preparation for this our children have already begun practising their bakery skills in our role-play area. Next half term we will be learning the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar.’
Our mini library has proven to be extremely successful and we wish to continue with this every Wednesday. Could you please remember to send your child’s book in on this day every week to ensure that it can be changed.
Once our new starters have had the opportunity to settle into life here at Brandhall, we will be advertising forthcoming ‘Parent Drop In’ sessions and Inspire workshops. These will provide parents and families with an insight into what we are learning in class and are an opportunity to learn alongside your child.
