Welcome to Nursery
Our teacher is Miss Walker and our Higher Level Teaching Assistant/Nursery Nurse is Cindy.
We are lucky to have the support of Tash at dinner time and during afternoon activities.
We always try our best and have lots of fun while we learn through play!
Outdoor learning is an important part of the early years curriculum so the children spend a lot of time outside. Please ensure your child has suitable clothing for the changing weather e.g. a cap for sunny days or a suitable coat, hats, scarves, gloves etc. as the weather gets colder. Thank you.
Your child will be given a reading book to take home each week to share together. It is a great opportunity to develop their speaking and listening skills and imagination.
This will be provided with a Key Worker book where parents and teachers can communicate about the child's development. The teachers will write targets and next steps for your child to work on at home with your support.
Current RE topic
Pentecost - Good News
During RE sessions we learn to be a good friend, care for others and follow in the ways of Jesus. We are very respectful of our 'prayer table' which the children know is an important area within the Nursery to think about God.
Our topic this half term is 'Under the Sea' where we have been listening to stories and learning about animals that live there. We were shocked to find that 'Pirate Pete' had crept into Nursery and left his treasures behind for us to find and count. We have loved playing in our new pirate ship role play area which we built together. It has engaged and supported the children's independent writing as they love leaving messages in a bottle or writing their own scroll.
Our storybook that we will be linking many literacy activities to this term is 'The Rainbow Fish.' We will also be focussing on recognising and practising writing our names so any help at home would be appreciated.
Phonics is a very important aspect of the Early Years curriculum which supports the children with their reading and writing skills ready for school. We focus on Phase 1 in Nursery with some aspects of Phase 2.
Here are some games to play and support your child with.
This half term is very exciting in Nursery as it is the time where we all get to know our new teachers and friends. We will spend time exploring and investigating in our new classroom and finding out all about ourselves.
Our first main topic is all about 'Colour' where the children will engage in a variety of creative activities to base their learning on. We will be linking these activities to the story 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do You See?'
During maths sessions we will be working with numbers to 10 and focussing on the shapes; square, circle, triangle and rectangle.
Here are some websites to support you at home.
