Welcome to Amber class

In Amber Class we work closely with parents/carers to set the foundations of children’s first steps in their learning.

This term we have lots of fun and engaging activities planned to help the new children settle and become familiar with their new routines and environment.

Please check our nursery news page and Home Learning page for the timetables and some great learning activities for you to enhance your child’s learning journey at home.

The topic for the spring half term is ‘rhythm and rhyme’.

Nursery rhymes help children develop vocabulary. Rhyming helps children learn about words, sounds and language formation. Hearing and using rhyme, rhythm and repetition helps children develop early literacy skills. The repetition of words, ideas and skills is important for early brain development. The bouncy rhythm catches the child’s attention. Repetition and familiarity help the child to remember and supports language development, whilst engaging a child  and fostering social development.

Our topic this half term offers a huge range of exciting art and craft activities using a variety of materials and media. We hope the children will enjoy this topic.

Each week one child will take the ‘family box’ home where they can put photos and special objects in to talk about themselves, show and display.

We will be busy developing our physical skills and independence whilst playing with gloop, paint, pulses and playdough and moving around the classrooms both inside and outside.

Children are also encouraged to take books home from school for carers to read to them to begin to instill their love for reading and sense of exploration.

Exciting times for everybody!
