Welcome to the class pages for Nursery. We use these pages to share news and pictures of our time in Nursery.
The teaching assistants in Nursery are Mrs Jo Poppy, Monday to Friday and Mrs Coral Cooper who works on a Friday. Mrs Gothamee Abbeyrathne joins us every day over the lunchtime period. Mrs Haskins comes into Nursery on a Thursday morning to cover Mrs Weaving's planning time.
All the children have a water bottle which should come into Nursery on the days they attend. (just plain water please) We will send it home with them at the end of the day and will always refill it during the day if required.
It is very helpful if all clothes are named and if spare clothes for your child are available in their bags. Most children prefer their own clothes to change into if they get wet during play. We value the outdoor environment and spend time outdoors everyday.
Please send your children with coats, hat and gloves in the cold weather and a sun hat during the warmer months. Please could we remind parents and carers that children should have sun-cream applied before they come to Nursery in warmer weather.
We offer children an opportunity to borrow a book from our Nursery library to take home and share with their family or carers. All children will be able to change their book on a weekly basis.
The Nursery Class use the school hall for fun, active sessions on a weekly basis and have a music session every Tuesday morning.
We try to add the photographs from our activities the children have chosen to put on our board every week - click on the "Weekly Photographs" below to open them.
Term 2 - 'Our 5 senses'
Making smelly potions, going on a listening walk, tasting different fruits and exploring our filled balloons are some of the activities we will be completing as we talk about our senses this term. As we near the Christmas period we will be using our senses as we make Christmas spiced playdough and create textured pictures. We hope the children will enjoy the sensory opportunities to mark make, such as using paints and shaving foam on foil and tasting the buns we are baking.
Please do ask if you have any questions. We look forward to a busy and happy term!
Term 1 - "This is Me!"
We look forward to getting to know each other this term and spend time talking about our families and friends. We will be able to begin to understand that we have similarities and differences and that there are lots of different sorts of families. We will start to talk about our emotions and how we can all share a happy and safe Nursery. There will be fun activities linked to ourselves such as measuring our height for our chart and making pizza faces.
