Welcome to the Caterpillars!
The grown-ups in the Caterpillar class are Mrs Elwell, Mrs Leatherland and Miss Goldacre.
We all love teaching the Caterpillars and we are so proud of their achievements!
If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you!
Our school value for this term is ‘Respect’.
Being respectful is one of the key ingredients to being the best person you can be. “Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.” The children are learning how we can show respect to others, to animals and to objects, and how it feels to have respect shown to ourselves.
“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”
We love learning in the Caterpillars! This term we will be learning all about ....
How to show respect to others and our belongings and environment. We will be learning about the Creation Story in the Bible. We will be learning about how to stay safe when out and about in the dark on an evening when we are with our grown ups. We will be learning about how to keep safe on Bonfire Night. We will also focus on helping others especially supporting Children in Need. November 11th - 15th it is Anti-Bullying week so we will be learning about taking care of our friends and how we can help if we see someone being unkind to others. We will be building upon our learning of the Prime areas and especially daily routines and behavioural expectations. Taking turns and sharing toys. Developing friendships. Counting. Listening to stories. Joining in with the repeated refrains in stories. Climbing. Singing songs and nursery rhymes. Looking after our friends at nursery and in the community.
Developing a love of reading
We aspire to develop a love of reading in nursery through reading and sharing stories. You can help by sharing books with your child at home. Sharing books are available to borrow from nursery or from our amazing St. Faith's library. We do encourage parents to point out print in the environment such as shop signs to their child to help develop pre-reading skills. Please see the weekly newsletter for further suggestions of activities to support your child in their learning.
