Welcome to Nurture Group
Welcome Back to a new school year!
In Nurture Group this half term we are using two lovely books as our inspiration. These are The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas and Be Mindful of Monsters by Lauren Stockly. This might make you think our topic is Monsters. In fact, our main focus is Our Feelings - but of course we will be enjoying lots of monster-based activities as we go along!
During the second half of the term we will turn our focus to the seasons, and particularly the natural changes going on around us in Autumn and the traditional activities associated with that time of year.
We are hoping not to need to set Seesaw learning this term, but if any of the children do have to isolate at any point we will set Seesaw activities from day 2 of the isolation period.
Remember to keep up with your reading at home, and to make a note of it in the reading record. It's fine to read things other than your school reading book some days - magazines, recipes, food packets, internet facts ...... write down anything that you have been reading with an adult. All reading is valuable!!
Don't forget to go on SumDog regularly to build your maths skills.Ten minutes or so on SumDog three times a week can make a big difference to maths confidence.
Remember that you can use the IDL web app from home. It works best on Google Chrome. IDL supports your reading, spelling and keyboard skills, so it helps you with all your learning, now and for the rest of your life!
