Nursery Spring 1 Newsletter

Curriculum Newsletter Spring Term ~ 2020

Asslamulakum (wtb) Parents!  Usthada Khan and Usthada Meah welcome back to another amazing term here at Iqra.

This half term the topic for EYFS will be ‘Space’. The topic will cover all seven areas of learning for the Early Years curriculum. The seven areas of learning are as follows: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Reading and Writing, Expressive Arts and Design, Mathematics and Understanding of the World.

Over the next half term we will be reading a range of story books which relate to our Space topic, these books include, Man on the Moon, Whatever Next, Beegu and many more. 

Children will have an array of opportunities to engage in various activities, for example, junk modelling to make different types of rocket/spaceship models, carrying out investigations about space and planets.  Learning planets names and some facts. Children will be discussing the best way to travel into Space. 


This term children will learn Surah Iklas and dua for parents with meaning and will practice saying Salaams and JazakAllah to each other. Please encourage your child at home to practice these manners. 

Book Changing/homework

please note books will be changed every Friday. Parents are expected to sign the reading record to confirm their child has read the book with an adult, and comment to let the staff know how their child found the book would also be appreciated. Please encourage your child to keep the book neat and tidy.

Homework will go out every Friday and due by every Wednesday.

How You Can Help

  • Bring in any stories or books about our topic that we can share in class.
    Go to the library with your child and read stories of ‘space’ together.
  • Teach your children some name of the planets. 
  • Talk about Allah has made everything.
  • Encourage children to enter the classroom independently 
  • Encourage sharing and waiting for their turn. 
  • Encourage children to eat with spoon or fork and to clean their own plate after eating dinner.
  • Encourage your child to tidy up their own toys.
  • Please encourage your child to dress up independently. 
  • Please do not send your child wearing laces shoes, this may cause an accident. 



We always need small boxes, tubes, yoghurt pots, small plastic bottles, ribbons and material for our junk modeling. Please bring in anything you can find at home.


Your child is outdoors during the day whatever the weather.

Some children do have accidents during the day and we sometimes need to change their clothes. Please have a complete change of clothes in school in a named bag.


Dates for your dairy:

PE – Tuesday 

Please note on PE days dress you child into a tracksuit and T-shirt with black trainers without laces.

We are looking forward to work with you and your child in this term.  Thank you for your support. Please feel free to talk to anyone of us, if you have any problems or queries.
