Welcome to Dragonfly class! Our teacher is Miss Pateman , who has joined Bedwell this year and is kind, calm and full of creative ideas! We are also supported by our fantastic teaching assistants, Mrs Avis and Mrs Nichols. We all come to school in the mornings, and some of us also stay for the afternoons as well - if you are interested in finding out more about 30 hour provison or additional hours for children in Nursery, please speak to Miss Pateman or the School Office.
Home learning ideas:
Our latest news:
Child Initiated Learning - we have had the chance to try out a huge range of activities linked to learning, our own individual interests and our focus story, Owl Babies. As a result we have developed and widened our friendship circles, enabling us to engage with our environment and improve our speaking and listening skills. Many of us have made fantastic progress because of this. We always look forward to finding out what new activities and challenges have appeared in our classrooms each day and are also keen to find new ways to explore, use and play with the equipment and resources around us.
Communication & Language - We will be reading and acting out the fantastic story Whatever Next this half-term, joining Baby Bear on his rocket trip to the moon and talking about the different places that our imaginations could take us. We will be developing our use of helicopter stories - creating our own adventures and acting them out for our friends. In circle time we will be meeting and talking to our next Learning Superhero, Eddy Empathy, whose powers are concern, understanding, honesty and forgiveness. We will ask questions and develop our use of language to explain how we feel.
Personal, Social & Emotional Learning - We will start the half-term by talking about firework safety, making sure we are all ready to enjoy Bonfire Night in a fun, safe way. We will be celebrating Diwali and trying out lots of different Indian food, which will help to expand our descriptive language. We will also be thinking about healthy eating and why this is important.
Physical Development - We will be continuing with our ‘Funky Finger’ challenges and ‘Marvellous Mark Making’ this half-term, both inside and outside. These will help us to develop both our fine and gross motor skills. In our weekly PE sessions with Mr Butler, we will be continue to develop our spatial awareness, finding space, moving towards and away from each other, and travelling and stopping with control.
