NURSERY – July 2016

Theme for the month: Farm Friends

Introducing your child to farm animals at an early age will result in a greater understanding of responsibility and compassion. Through this theme your child will learn about pets and farm animals and how they are useful to us. Your child will get a better understanding of how animals are classified based on their abilities, skills and habitat. He/she will learn in detail about each pet and farm animal: food, family, sounds, physical features, needs, health and care. He/she will also be introduced to rain and rain creatures.

Drama and technology aided lessons will help them to enhance their learning experience.


Vocabulary will be enhanced through the introduction of letters ‘Dd’, ‘Ee’, ‘Ff’, and sight words related to the theme. Along with these, various activities like Show and Tell, Picture Talks, Rhymes and Stories will be done on a regular basis.


The child will be introduced to numerals, concepts of colour and size.

The Read Aloud Programme:

The Big Book Read Aloud Programme is an endeavour that the school has commenced in the Preprimary section. The Big Books enrich critical thinking and oral language development through modelled reading, through risk-free participation by the children and through the meaningful teaching of skills within context – I See…I Think…..& I Wonder…..These resources are very effective for the interactive read aloud and think aloud sessions that help teach reading strategies to develop comprehension, and emphasize on skills like prediction, visualization, asking questions, making connections and so on.
