Spring term has started well and the children have returned ready and raring to go! This half term we will be finding out all about various forms of transport, naming them and sorting into groups. We will be focusing on holding and using books correctly, learning songs about transport and in number we will be working on counting numbers and objects.
Please have a read at our planning so you know what your child be doing each week. The activities for 2 year olds are highlighted in yellow.
I'm sure we will see snow at some point so the planning may change to focus on the weather but I will keep you informed via Marvellous Me.
We will be celebrating Chinese New Year this half term and hopefully tasting lots of tasty Chinese food.

Autumn 2 Reflection
Wow! Christmas is here and the 2 year olds have come on so much since September; they are progressing so much. They have been learning to share toys, tidy toys up and other school routines. They have had fun using story sacks, tasting food from around the world and also enjoying celebrations such as Diwali, birthday and Christmas. They have helped raise money for Children in Need and Teesside Hospice. Thank you so much for your support in attending our weekly rhyme time sessions and we hope to continue with parent sessions after Christmas.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and we are already looking forward to seeing you in 2019.
Autumn 2 is here and we are busy learning to sing lots of well know nursery rhymes, number songs to 5 and listening to stories linked to food and celebrations.
We are also focusing on following instructions in a fun way, sharing toys, playing together and holding and handling books correctly.
We are starting phase 1 phonics through the use of noisy books and learning animal sounds which we are finding very funny indeed!
Our overall planning is the same as last half term and can be found on the bottom of this page.
As we get nearer Christmas, the glitter and real fun will begin!

This half term we have been busy settling into nursery and making new friends and getting to know the rules of school.
We have enjoyed exploring toys and investigating food using our senses.
Some of us have been brave enough to sing in the hall and take part in PE. Our teachers have introduced us to Lycra and we love playing games and singing songs with it; it helps us to concentrate during group time and to share and take turns.
