Nursery - Mae C. Jemison
Our class name is ‘Mae C. Jemison’. She was the first black woman to travel in space and served as a mission specialist on board the Space Shuttle Endeavour.
Our topic for this half term is “People who help us”. During this topic children will become familiar with occupations such as, firefighter, builder, doctor and nurse, police, postal service worker, garbage collector and bus driver. We will be building a sense of community and making connections between people and places. We will be going to the post office to post our letters and police will be visiting us in school.
In PSED we will be sharing the book “Empathy” and “Sharing” and discussing how our actions impacts on others and how we feel about it. We will be discussing the importance of sharing and knowing how to wait for our turn.
In our Maths learning, we will be developing and deepening our number sense with numbers 1-5. We will be introducing easy problem solving focusing on addition and following patterns.
In Phonics, we will be exploring and experimenting with sounds and words.
Read Every Day, Talk Every Day
To encourage a greater focus on reading at home, the Early Years at Holy Trinity is introducing what we hope will prove to be a highly motivational scheme called RED TED.
RED TED is an acronym for children Reading Every Day with their parent or carer and then Talking Every Day about what they have read.
We will continue to change RED TED books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday so please ensure your child has their book bag in school on this day.
Please click on the Red Ted for more information
Please continue to read to your child every day and we will continue to change RED TED books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Look out for our ‘Talk Homework’ in the children’s cloakroom for ideas of how to support your child at home with our weekly learning. If you do anything at home linked to our topic please bring it in as we would love to share it.
Please find below the resources that were used and handed out in our recent Phonic Workshop for parents. We hope that you find them useful.
