Welcome to Nursery

Partnership with Parents

We are keen for parents to support the children's learning at home as much as possible. To help you do this, we produce a termly information sheet, outlining our main topics and giving suggestions for how you might follow them up at home:

2017-18

Autumn
Children in Nursery have been enjoying the autumn season.  We have been on an autumn walk in the field and enjoyed collecting leaves in different colours. We then used the leaves to make beautiful leaf prints for our display.
We also enjoyed welcoming parents and carers into nursery for our Books and Biscuits sessions. Children shared books and enjoyed re-telling our story of the half term “Dear Zoo”. We then shared the biscuits we had made together

 
 

Settling In
Children in Nursery have been settling in and exploring all our areas of learning.
They have been making models, painting, threading numbers and making patterns with shapes. They have enjoyed being outside in our Nursery garden and have been playing with the mud kitchen and enjoying our digging area. There is always much excitement when a worm or a snail is discovered! The children have also enjoyed our new wobbly bridge and our climbing areas. Role play has been popular and children have enjoyed using their own experiences to enhance their play.
The children have already started to make new friends and are becoming familiar with our routines including staying for lunch. We are really pleased with the way the children all feel so happy and settled with the new experiences and look forward to watching their learning grow.

 
 

Maths Day 2017
The Nursery children had a great time on maths day exploring a range of maths activities! Children enjoyed counting, number recognition, shapes and using mathematical language in lots of exciting activities such as hook a duck, number songs, Crispin the counting crow and digging for dinosaur bones! Thank you to all the parents and carers for your support the children looked wonderful in their maths inspired outfits which helped to make the day even more special.

 
 

Literacy morning
Thank you very much to the many parents and carers who were able to join us for our Literacy morning on Wednesday.
Staff were delighted to see so many adults sharing in literacy activities with their children.
Children and adults enjoyed sharing stories, information books, playing with puppets, writing stories, mark making, making finger puppets and sharing class books and story sacks.
We are very grateful for your support.

 
 

Children in Nursery have been enjoying the story of “We’re going on a bear hunt”
They really enjoyed drawing and making small bear caves and they also created a cave with boxes and paints to be used on our own bear hunt in our nursery garden.

 
 

Nursery has welcomed some new children this term.
They are all settling well and are beginning to make new friends.
