Assalamu’alaikum and welcome!

Welcome to Nursery! Assalamu alaykum!

Welcome to Spring 2.

Welcome to our nursery class page, where young minds thrive in a nurturing environment!

Counting: Our aim this term is to encourage your child to count
everyday objects. Counting a variety of objects with one to one
correspondence. This activity is essential for developing their
counting skills and number recognition. We will encourage them to say
one number for each item, reinforcing their understanding of quantity.
Also to match quantity cards with a number of objects in a pot

Phonics: This term in phonics we have been encouraging the children to
begin to listen for the sounds with the same initial sound. Begin to
correct and identify the initial sound in words. Phase one – for
example, voice sounds and oral blending.

PE day: Our Physical Education (PE) day is scheduled for Tuesday. Our focus this term is ball skills. Children will develop their skills to show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements. Understand how to move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. Learning how to handle equipment effectively e.g. balls. Begin to demonstrate different ways of pushing a ball, rolling a ball, and bouncing a ball.

Recycling: We engage in creative activities, including junk modeling, and are always in need of small boxes, tubes, yogurt pots, small plastic bottles, ribbons, and materials. If you have any of these items at home, we would greatly appreciate your contributions to our recycling efforts.

Weather: Regardless of the weather, your child will spend time outdoors during the day. Please make sure they are appropriately dressed in their correct uniforms to ensure their comfort and well-being.

Accidents: Accidents can happen, and in such cases, we may need to change your child’s clothes. To be prepared, please provide a complete change of clothes in school, packed in a named bag.

Your involvement and support are essential for your child’s success and well-being at Iqra Nursery. If you have any questions or require further information about any of these aspects, please feel free to reach out to us. We appreciate your partnership and look forward to a rewarding and educational term ahead, Insha’Allah.

Children 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.
There will be an opportunity for you and your child to choose a book together to take home to read and then return. You will be provided with a log book to record each time you change the book.
