Our themes will include puppets, dinosaurs, favourite toys, toy shops, old and new toys, teddies and Christmas. At home you could follow up our work by:

 

  • Reading stories about toys – such as the Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs stories by Ian Whybrow, Kipper’s Toybox by Mick Inkpen, Where’s my Teddy? by Jez Alborough.
  • Making up stories with your child using their toys as the central characters or settings, such as Teddy’s tea party or a day at the zoo.
  • Sorting toys into groups, according to their colour, size or what they are made from.
  • Talking about toys that you or their Grandparents enjoyed playing with. If you are interested in toys from the past, the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood is a great place to visit.
  • Helping your child to choose and cut pictures of toys out of catalogues to make a letter to Father Christmas.
  • Talking about ways in which you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or other festivals.

                         

Dates for this half term:

Monday 4th November – Back to nursery.

Sunday 24th November – Woodside Christmas Fair.

Friday 6th December - Nursery and Reception Christmas performance 10:45am – details to follow (we hope that you would all like to come and watch.)

Tuesday 10th December – New nursery children visiting nursery.

Friday 13th December – PTA Christmas gifts.

Thursday 19th December – Nursery Christmas Party and Term Ends.

 

It would be great to know more about your child’s interests and hobbies. Please add to Tapestry any special visits, activities, family days out, events or achievements so that we can talk about them in nursery. Also, If any Grandparent or parent has an old toy that we could show to the children, that would be wonderful.
