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:

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.

Spring and Easter at Nursery
Children in nursery have been enjoying learning about spring and Easter.
We have drawn pictures of our families, made mother’s day cards, cakes and seed sticks and enjoyed singing a new song to mummies at our celebrations.
Children have been using thin brushes to decorate egg pictures and we also had fun mixing shaving foam and food colouring and using brushes to make marks with the mixture.
We went on a spring walk in the school field to look and listen for signs of spring and made flowers and blossom using sticks we had collected. 
We also enjoyed using magnifying glasses in our garden to look carefully at the worms in the soil.
Our learning concluded with an Easter egg hunt in the garden when children looked for eggs that matched numbers and shapes.

Dinosaur Counting
Our new children have been enjoying counting in the garden with the dinosaurs.

Chinese New Year

Nursery children have enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year this week. Some of the children joined with the Reception classes to enjoy a range of activities in a different setting with some new friends.

We have been making banners and decorations, learning some facts about how children celebrate the New Year and playing a lucky money counting and numbers game. Children have learned about lucky numbers and colours, listened to stories and explored shapes to make their own dragons.

The children were very interested in the photos of a dragon dance and we decided to make our own dragon head. We were busy learning the words to a dragon dance song and then during our hall time we played instruments, waved red and gold ribbons and did a dragon dance together.

 

Well done!   

Children in Nursery and Reception took part in a physical activity and literacy time in our school hall today.

Children took part in races and were cheered on by their friends who chanted words they had learnt from the Gingerbread Man story.

Both classes then sat together and shared gingerbread people that had been made by the Nursery children.

At home you could ask your child what race they took part in, what they shouted out to their friends and whether they chose to eat a gingerbread man or a gingerbread lady!
