Which Nursery rhymes do you know?

Our topic this half term is all about Nursery Rhymes. Some will be very familiar and some may be new to you and your child.

If you have a favourite Nursery rhyme please let myself or Mrs Brough know and we will share it with the class. If you would like some suggestions for rhymes you can share with your child, please ask. We have lots!

As part of our topic we are also looking at our local area. We all know that Jack and Jill went up the hill…and fell down again! Which route do you take to school? Do you go up the hill or down? Do you pass any interesting buildings or other local features such as parks? Please take a photo for us so that the children can add it to our map of Kidsgrove.

PE is on Friday mornings and the children will a their named PE kit, including suitable footwear

This half term is also about settling your child into new routines and making sure that they are happy in Reception. Please feel free to see either of us if you have any questions or concerns.
