Having Fun with Nursery Rhymes

Singing nursery rhymes & songs to Children as young as babies can help develop their language & communication skills from an early age. There are so many ways adults can make this type of learning fun, whether this is by using props, music or musical instruments. Introducing children to a variety of nursery rhymes can help them understand & learn about different sounds. This is an important part of developing those early literacy skills. Listening to different sounds in the environment as well as in nursery rhymes provides children with the foundations in helping them to read & write. It also helps children to develop their social skills as it’s a great opportunity for children to get to know their peers.

Spring 2 - Thematic Planning - Having fun with Nursery Rhymes

Spring 1 Review

Our topic last term was – Burr Its cold outside!

Last term In Pre-School our main focus was all about… The cold weather outside! We did lots of fun activities that the children really enjoyed, learning about the cold weather. We had first-hand experiences playing outside in the cold & even had the opportunity to play in a flurry of light snow & splashing in puddles. The children focused on putting on their own coats, hats, gloves, & wellington boots independently. We ate warm toast & drank warm hot chocolate at snack time to keep us warm. We also had lots fun learning about winter through songs & stories.

Welcome back to our children & families after February half term. We hope you had a lovely break at home enjoying some quality time with your friends & family. We are always amazed at how quickly the children settle after a holiday with lots of smiles, giggles and eager to play. We would also like to welcome the new Children & parents who have recently started in our busy Pre-school.

A big thank you to those parents who have managed to persevere with toilet training their child during the holidays and for those parents who are continuing to toilet train their child. Not always an easy task! The Pre-school team are always on hand to support & give lots of practical advice & support as always.
