Mathematics

During Nursery's Mathematics learning this half term, we will be learning lots of number rhymes and exploring size. The children will practise counting objects in the correct order to 5 and fast recognition of up to 3 object without having to count each one. The children will explore size using language and gestures in their play by building and comparing.

Healthy Teeth

At Christ the King, we are promoting the importance of good oral hygiene. Please share this video with your child and talk about the importance of brushing their teeth in the morning and at night. Could you also talk to your child about foods and drink what is good and bad for your teeth. With this in mind, please ensure your child only brings water to school, healthy snacks and water in their packed lunch.

At school we will be introducing the 'Brush Bus' to the children later in the year. Each child in nursery will receive their own toothbrush and will have the opportunity to brush their teeth every day after lunch.

 

Here is a presentation of 'Top Toothbrushing Tips'.

 

 

   Religion

This half term, our Religion topics are 'Myself' and 'Welcome'. In our 'Myself' topic we will explore God loving us, learn how to make the sign of the cross and join in with our daily prayers. Through our 'Welcome' topic, we will discuss baptisms and being welcomed into Gods family.
