Nursery - Nanuq

 

Welcome to Nanuq Class page! Our class name this year is based on an animal native to the Arctic! The name ‘Nanuq’ means ‘Polar Bear’ in Inuktitut; one of the Inuit languages. The polar bear is the largest carnivorous land mammal in the world and they enjoy eating other animals such as seals. Their skin is black and they have a thick layer of fat, known as ‘blubber’, to keep them warm in the icy waters of the Arctic. Their habitat (the environment in which they live) is under threat as the ice is melting too quickly due to climate change. Nanuq class have adopted a polar bear from WWF and we look forward to keeping you updated!

RED TED

Read Every Day, Talk Every Day

RED TED is an acronym for children Reading Every Day with their parent or carer and then Talking Every Day about what they have read.

 

We strongly encourage you to continue RED TED as part of your home learning. Keep track of how many books you read with tally marks or by making your own chart. If you have your own printer you can download and print this chart (RED TED Chart).

 

Celebrate reaching reading milestones by sharing a picture of your chart with your teacher on Evidence Me. Please refer to the Reading section below for a list of websites offering a range of online books and read alouds.
