Nursery – February 2017
Theme for the month: Transport
Transport plays an important role in our day to day life. This topic interests children the most, since they love activities that include playing with all types of toys that represent various modes of transport, be it automobiles, trains or airplanes.
Through this theme, your child will understand what transport is; learn different modes of travel and also their safety rules and regulations.
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 ‘Vv’, ‘Ww’, ‘Xx’, 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.
