Latest Play Room News
A warm welcome to all of our new children and families who have joined us so far this Summer Term.
Summer Term is an exciting and busy one at Holly Corner, with all of our 2018 school leavers preparing for their next step. With this in mind, the children in Squirrels and school leavers in Hedgehogs will be starting P.E. Sessions this term. This is to encourage dressing and undressing skills ready for when they join reception class in September.
The children will be taking part in many games and obstacle courses in the garden and we hope to arrange a sports day in June/July.
The children in Badgers room will be enjoying lots of activities to help them settle into nursery and make new friends such as ball games, group times and lots of stories and singing.
All of the children in Hedgehogs and Squirrels have been enjoying Letters and Sounds sessions. Hedgehogs are going to be looking at rhythm and rhyme over the next few months with a focus on the story ‘Shark in the Park’. Squirrels children are going to be looking at oral blending and segmenting basic words based on the phonic sounds we have already learnt- we will be going on word hunts in the garden, playing phonic fish and extending the Sammy Squirrel goes shopping game.
The whole nursery got involved in planting week and we would like to thank all of the families who donated seeds/flowers to us and also the parents and grandparents who came in to plant them with the children. We had a great time and the seeds are already starting to grow. We cannot wait to see our garden looking sunny and pretty soon.
We are going to be arranging School Leaver ceremonies for July so look out for invitations coming soon.
