Nursery Book Character

Assalamu’alaikum and welcome to all nursery children and parents for this academic year!

Welcome to Nursery! Asalaamalaikum!

Asslamulakum (wtb) Parents!  Usthada Khan and Usthada Sharmin welcome all the families have joined the Iqra Nursery.

Each half term you will receive a newsletter telling you about the topics the children will be covering in that term and to inform you of any special events happening. These topics will cover the seven areas of learning: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Reading and Writing, Expressive Arts and Design, Mathematics and Understanding of the World.

Please ensure that your child attends nursery on the chosen (Am – PM) sessions, otherwise, your child will be missing a lot of valuable learning time at the nursery.

This term we will be looking at and focusing on the story of ‘All About Me’. They will learn themselves as an individual, it will support them to understand their personalities, what they like or dislike. The children will learn the names of their body parts through singing action songs, drawing and painting their own portraits. In small groups we will discuss their families for example, how many family members he/she has? How many siblings?  Children will learn the names of different relations e.g. grandma, granddad, uncle…

 

Furthermore, to develop Personal, Social and Emotional development we will also be reading stories and playing games about learning, sharing and using kind hands to help others.

 

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 the ‘All About Me’ together.

Encourage sharing and waiting for their turn.
Encourage your child to tidy up their own toys.
Please encourage your child to dress up independently.

Tarbiya

ren will recite Surah Faatiha and knowledge dua every day and will practice saying Salaams and JazakAllah to each other. Please encourage your child at home to practice these manners.

Insha’Allah over the year we are aiming to memories four last Surahs.

Book Changing

By the end of autumn 1, your child will receive a storybook to take home to read and then return. You will be provided with a logbook to record each time they change the book. Encourage your child to read. Reading the text and talking about the pictures together helps them to learn new words every day.

PE day: Tuesday

Please dress your child in a correct PE kit, white T-shirt and blue bottom.

Recycling

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

Weather

Your child is outdoors during the day whatever the weather. So make sure they wear their correct uniforms.

Accidents
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.

Note: Ust Khan will be off every Thursday and Ust Brouke will be covering her.

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