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!
The Early Years (EYFS) curriculum focuses on the learning and development of the whole child. See the link for development matters below.
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 and activity book where parents and teachers can communicate about the child's development. The teachers will provide activities and next steps for your child to work on at home with your support.
Upcoming dates this half term:
Friday 20th September- Odd socks day
Friday 27th September- Mad hair day
Friday 4th October- Autumn Fayre
Friday 25th October- Break up
Current RE topic
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.
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. Attached is the link to the 'Letters and Sounds' document,
Here are some phonics 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 'Myself' 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 'Come on, Daisy'
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.
