Nursery – January 2017
Theme for the month:Our Feathered Friends (Birds)
While exploring and understanding the land and water still seems like a possibility, what intrigues the young mind is the sky. It is a dream to fly across this open space. What makes these birds special, how they fly across such vast spans, how is it that some fly higher than the rest. These are some of the thoughts that cross each young mind.
Thus, through this theme your child will gain an insight about common birds, their physical features and description, life span, habitat, food, young ones etc.
Effective usage of Role plays, Audio Visual learning and technology will be the methodology used.Rhymes, songs, stories, games and creative work will ensure that your child learns concepts in a child friendly way. Related worksheets will enable reinforcement of concepts done through the month making it an enriching experience!
Vocabulary will be enhanced through the introduction of letters ‘Ss’, ‘Tt’, ‘Uu’, and sight words related to the theme. Along with these various activities like show and tell, nature talk, rhymes and stories will be done on a regular basis.
There will be a progression in numerals, concepts of colours and shapes.
