Welcome to the class pages for Nursery. We use these pages to share news and pictures of our time in Nursery.
Mrs Gordon, Mrs Poppy, Miss Bradley, Mrs Cooper and Mrs Haskins are all part of our Nursery team. Mrs Poppy and Miss Bradley work together on a Monday and Tuesday, Mrs Gordon and Mrs Poppy work together on a Wednesday and Thursday and Mrs Gordon and Mrs Cooper work together on a Friday. Mrs Haskins comes into Nursery on a Thursday morning to cover Mrs Gordon's planning time and Mrs Gothamee Abbeyrathne and Mrs Webb join us every day over the lunchtime period.
Please can all children make sure they bring a water bottle 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.
PE will take place on a Friday morning. During this time we are unable to use the school hall for PE lessons and therefore lessons will take place outside.
As we start the new school year, we will be looking at 'Our Families' and 'Houses and Homes'. When we talk and share information about our families, we will be beginning to understand that there are lots of different sorts of families and think about similarities and differences with our friends. We will talk about how we can all be safe and happy in Nursery and create our Nursery Charter together. There will be lots of games and play together so we can all make new friends and enjoy our sessions in Nursery. This will be supported by the picture books we are sharing this term.
Towards the end of term we will be celebrating harvest, and looking at the story 'The Enormous Turnip' to help us with our learning.
Some of our activities this term are:
- Painting family portraits
-Making a family tree
-Looking at objects in our homes and discussing their uses
Most of all we will be making new friends and having lots of FUN!
Welcome back to term 2. We hope you managed to have a lovely half term break, before we faced Lockdown Number 2!
We are starting this term by reading the story ‘In the Castle’ by Anna Milbourne. We will read some more castle related stories over the next few weeks, and put our construction skills to the test when we make our own castles.
Towards the end of term we will learn about the traditional christmas story. Unfortunately, Christmas is going to look very different in school this year. However, we will make it as festive as we can in Nursery, with lots of Christmas crafts and will no doubt make lots of mess with glitter!
Welcome back to Term Four. We can't wait to see you all back in the classroom. Thank you for all your support over the last few weeks with home learning. It has been a difficult few months for everyone, and we appreciate that 'home learning' isn't always easy, but we are very grateful for all your hard work and dedication.
For the rest of this term, we will be following the topic 'Easter.' More details are on the Newsletter and of course Tapestry.
Please take care and stay safe.
All the staff in Nursery
Welcome back to term 5. We hope you enjoyed the Easter break and are ready to return to nursery for lots more fun and exciting activities.
This term we are going to learn about Pirates, make telescopes and a giant pirate ship in the classroom. We will base our acitivities over the next few weeks around the story ‘Pirates Love Underpants’ and many other pirate related stories. We will learn some ‘pirate lingo’ and practice talking in our best pirate voices…’Ahoy there, mateys!’
Towards the end of term, we will be learning about farms. The children will learn about different food that is grown on farms and some of the animals that live on farms, learning names for animals and their young.
We will be taking part in the 'Daily Mile' challenge three times a week on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I'm sure we will all become much fitter as the term progresses.
As always thank you for your continued support. Please come and see a member of the nursery staff if there's anything you would like to discuss.
Wow, I cannot believe we are in the final term of the year! It has been a pleasure getting to know all of your children, and for those that are going into Reception in September we will really miss you.
Our final topics for the year are 'Nursery Rhymes and Olympics'. We are going to have lots of fun learning lots of nursery rhymes, some well known ones and some less popular ones. There might even be a twist on a few of the rhymes thanks to Mrs Poppy!!
Please see the class newsletter for more information on this term.
As always, please contact us if there is anything we can help with.
