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 joins us every day over the lunchtime period.
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 Wednesday morning.
As we start the new school year, we will be celebrating how amazing we are. Our topic is 'This is Me' and we will be making ourselves in different ways and talking about our emotions. 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.
Some of our activities this term are:
- Making Mini Me’s
- Measuring ourselves for our height
- Making pizza faces
- Drawing our portraits
Welcome back to Nursery, we hope you have had a lovely half term. This term is going to be jam packed and full of fun!
We have started the term celebrating Diwali and were very lucky to have a visitor come in and teach the children the Diwali story through yoga and relaxation. Following the interests of our children we have chosen the theme ‘Elves and Fairies’ We are going to begin this topic by reading ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ story. We are even going to have our own shoe shop set up in the classroom. Keep your eyes peeled for any elves and fairy doors which might appear in and around nursery.
Once we reach December it will be very festive and I’m sure by then you will already know most of the words to the songs for our Christmas Production.
Some of our activities this term are:
Happy New Year to you all. We have started the term reading The Bear’s Winter House. The children have explored the playground and field for moss and sticks to create their own houses. They will have the opportunity to make and taste vegetable soup.
We will spend two weeks celebrating Chinese New Year. The role play area will become a Chinese restaurant and the children will have chance to have a go at using chop sticks. We will end the term continuing to look at winter and make bird feeders.
Our activities this term include:
