A big hello from Nursery!
 
This page will give you lots of information about things we are doing in Nursery and how you can support your child in their learning.
 
In our Nursery we offer a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities designed to promote the cognitive, physical, emotional and social growth of its children. Children can enjoy experimenting with sand, water, paint, clay, glue, wood and many other basic materials.

They enjoy looking at books, listening to stories and learning songs and rhymes. They can dress up in the role-play area, play with a variety of toys and games and engage in food technology.

Our Nursery allows children to make decisions, take turns with each other, share the attention of the adults and establish relationships with one another.

By the end of their time in Nursery, children should be more confident, capable and ready for Reception.

***Every Friday***
Please look out for Edward Bear coming home with your child on Fridays for the weekend. Each week we will choose a child to take him home. Use the book for writing about what your child has been getting up to with Edward. You can include photos if you wish.
Please make sure he comes back to school with his bag and book during the week ready for another adventure.

What have we been up to in the Autumn term?
Wb 5.11.18
This week we have been painting bonfire pictures using wonderful orange and red colours. We also collected leaves from the playground, dried them out, painted them and created some lovely leaf prints.
Wb 22.10.2018
This week we have been planning ahead and thinking about Halloween! We enjoyed listening to the story Funnybones and singing and dancing to the song 'Dem Bones.' We have made skeleton pictures and painted pumpkins. We made a witch's brew in the water and dressed up as witch's and wizards. We hope you all have a wonderful half term break and look forward to seeing you in November!
Wb 15.10.18
This week we have been reading the story of The Little Red Hen. She even baked us some bread which we buttered, put jam on and ate. It was really tasty!
We have also been continuing to talk about farm animals and the children have been building farms and animal enclosures outdoors.
Wb 8.10.18
This week we have enjoyed the story of 'The Pig in the Pond' and have been learning all about adult and baby animals. The children have been colouring pictures of farm animals and talking about them. They have also been cutting and sticking pictures to make their own farms. Outdoors some of the children have been very interested in searching for and looking at mini beasts. This prompted lots of questions and discussion.
Wb 1.10.18
This week we have had fun making sea creatures and snakes out of sparkly play dough. We made very long snakes and short ones and compared them. We also enjoyed playing in the leaves and talking about the noise they made when we stepped on them. Our story of the week has been 'Rainbow Fish' which the children have enjoyed very much.
Wb 24.9.2018
This week we have been busy mixing colours! We used red, yellow and blue to make orange, green and purple. We made hand prints and mixed the colours by shaking hands with a friend. We have also enjoyed learning about 2D shapes, naming them, counting their sides and corners and sorting them into sets.
Wb 17.9.18
This week we have been busy painting our portraits for our train display. We have been talking about friends and how they help us and the children have been showing kind and friendly behaviour towards each other. Our stories this week have been 'This is the Bear' and 'This is the Bear and the Scary Night' which the children have enjoyed very much. Today we went into the hall and played with the balls. We also made shapes with our bodies.
Wb 10.7.2018
This week we went for a walk around our school to meet all the adults who help us including teachers, our school cook and secretaries. We enjoyed learning about all the different jobs they do!
Also, Mrs Walker brought an ENORMOUS sunflower into Nursery for us to look at. We carefully picked out the seeds using tweezers and will plant some of them.
Welcome back!
We hope you have had a lovely summer holiday.
The children have settled back in to Nursery very well and our new children have already started to respond to our routines. This week we have been looking at the story of 'The Gruffalo' and we have made a beautiful collage of the Gruffalo.

Helping your child
 
In Nursery we believe parents play an important role in their child's education. At the bottom of this page you will find lots of information for you to support your child in their learning. 
 
 
 
 ...................................................................................................................................................................................................
 
Throughout EYFS (Nursery and Reception) everyone works hard to develop each child's capacity to learn, helping them to make good progress and develop excellent attitudes.

The Keys Skills and Early Years Curriculum are delivered through a range of themes, developed through the interests of the children. 

 

The Nursery Curriculum (30 - 50 months) covers the Prime and Specific areas of learning.

Phonics in Nursery
We learn early reading skills in nursery through a variety of listening activities and the Read Write Inc. phonics programme.

We love singing...

The children love joining in with new and favourite songs and rhymes. It has also helped with our counting.

Below are two popular songs for you to enjoy at home. The children will most definitely help you to learn them (and the actions too!).
