Welcome to Nursery!

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.
P.E will take place every Friday morning.
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.
Throughout the year we will be compiling learning journals showing your child's comments, photos and work from both school and home. The wow cards are a way for you to record those moments when your child says or does something that makes you think 'wow'! The wow cards can then be shared with the rest of the class before being placed in your child's learning journal.
What are we learning this term?
This term we are enjoying lots of traditional stories as part of our topic, 'Will you read me a story?'
We set up a Shoe Shop when we were learning about 'The Elves and the Shoemaker,' also measuring different shoes and making clothes for the elves.
Next, we listened to the story of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' and enjoyed building bridges and performing various challenges, such as counting to 10, in order to cross the Troll's bridge.
We loved the story of 'The Gingerbread Man' - we made our own gingerbread men and they ran away!
Here are some of the activities we have enjoyed so far this term
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!).
