Week Commencing 25th February
This week we are all about Book Week in Nursery so Topic and Literacy are quite literally hand in hand. All teachers have shared with their class information for children to bring their own book into school to share with their friends. Please check with your class teacher if you are not sure.
Parents have also been invited to come in and read to us if they have some spare time. Please just let your class teacher know so they can organise the time with you. There is something very special about having our mums and dads come into class and read so we would love to make time for you all 🙂
If you come into school with your children you will also see that all the classroom doors in the Infants School have been decorated. Each door represents a different book. If you have the time it would be lovely if you could walk round and talk about the different doors with your child.
In 2016 there was a simultaneous storytelling video made of a lovely book called ‘I Got This Hat.’ It’s a great story as a hat can let us be all kinds of different people… which make them a great story starter for our own tales. Take a look at the video below:
Maths activities will be incorporated into our readings of different books as appropriate. There will doubtless be lots of counting, shape naiming, and describing of positions such as behind, on, under, etc. 🙂
Book Week will start on Sunday 25th February after Half Term.We will have lots of fun activities planned including asking the children to bring in their favourite story to read aloud to their friends. In addition, a year 6 class will join us one day to read some books together. We will also be asking for parent volunteers to come and read with their child’s class during the week.
On Thursday 1st of March the whole school will have Book Character Day. Your child should come to school dressed up as their favourite book character and bring the book too for sharing if possible. The best costumes are always the homemade ones that the children have made with you. They have that special personal touch 🙂
11th March – 22nd March: We will be holding our Parent Teacher Meetings at the end of each day during these 2 weeks. A little nearer to the time we will open up the booking system so that you can select your preferred available slots.
On Thursday 22nd March it is Arabic Mothers Day and we will be inviting all our mums into our classes at the end of the day. We are giving you lots of notice as we would love it if all mums can come. We will be inviting you to join us from 11:30 and you will be doing a little activity with your child to celebrate your special day 🙂
