Welcome to the class pages for Nursery. We use these pages to share news and pictures of our time in Nursery. We have two teaching assistants working in Nursery, Miss Hornsey (mornings) and Mrs Poppy (afternoons).
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.
Welcome back! We hope everyone has had a lovely time over the Easter holidays.
This term our starting point is the book by Julia Donaldson, 'What the ladybird heard'. This follows the children's interests in finding and watching ladybirds in the outside area and includes another of their favourite topics, animals! We will have lots of opportunities to be outside looking for minibeasts as well as talking about animals that live on the farm. We will be making animals and insects with different materials - from paper plates to vegetables! We will be using stick puppets, small world resources and masks to retell the story and to support the children's developing imaginations to make up their own stories. We look forward to seeing where else the children take this topic and continuing to follow their changing interests.
Please could we remind parents to apply suncream prior to the start of Nursery and to send your child with a sunhat. We spend time outdoors everyday and will spend an increasing amount of time outside now that the weather is warmer.
As always, if you have any questions, please do ask. We look forward to a busy term!
Term 4 - "Down in the Jungle"
We are looking forward to finding out about the animals, birds and insects that live in the jungle this term. We will be continuing to explore the children's interest in maps and playing in our jungle explorer area. We already have a few animals that have moved in to the canopy and hope that our collection will grow as children display their creations. We continue our learning about shape this term, using different construction resources as well as looking at shapes in the world about us. We will be sharing classic books such as Rumble in the Jungle and Giraffe's can't Dance.
Please do ask if you have any questions.
The children add photographs to our board in Nursery showing activities they have enjoyed.
