Nursery

Welcome to the Nursery Web Page

 

Our Nursery Classes:

Buttercups, Daisies and Sunflowers

 

 

The Learning Journey topic this half term is:

‘All about Me’

 

 

 

 

This week (w/b 7/10):

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have been continuing to settle the children in and embedding the class routines and rules. The children have been also focusing on the story of ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell; a gentle tale of three baby owls which reassures young children that Mummy will always come home. We have also encouraged the children to make marks inside and outside the classroom.

Next week (w/b 14.10): 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will be focusing on the story called, ‘The Colour Monster’ by Anna Llenas. It is about a monster who explores colour through his emotions. The children will learn about the monster’s feelings and relate them to their own experiences, e.g. feeling sad, happy and angry.  The story beautifully illustartes emotions connecting them to different colours; black, yellow, red and green. The children will be sorting small objects by colour and practising talking about their own emotions and feelings to their friends in small groups. 

 

The whole school value is Respect

 

 

 

 

 

We are focusing on encouraging the children to play together and respecting one another.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tapestry will go live on the 18th October.

We will aim to post at least 2 observations per week for each child.

Ideas for helping children at home: 

-Please read aloud and tell stories to children ; it helps them to learn new ideas, concepts and vocabulary.
If English is not the language your family speaks at home, enjoy sharing books written in your home language.

-Please explore stories by talking about the pictures and predicting what might happen next in the story.

-Please  sing songs and nursery rhymes; play musical games together.

-Always encourage your child  to express their thoughts and use new words; have conversations with them at meal times.

-Please encourage your child to draw and make marks as these skills are important for them to develop their writing.

 

 

 

 *********************** REMINDERS & NOTICES  **************************

GATES: When leaving the Nursery please make sure that you close all of the gates behind you. Thank you.

ATTENDANCE: It is important that your child attends school everyday and arrives on time. They will miss important learning time if they are late.

SNACKS: Please do not put any snacks in this bag as the children have fruit provided at snack time.

COATS: Please make sure that your child has a coat at school everyday as we  go outside in all weathers. 

LABELS: Please label all items of your child’s clothing including their coats and shoes.

NUTS: Please make sure that your child does not bring nuts in any form to school. This is very important as we have children in our classes that are allergic to nuts.

 

 

 

Please make sure that your child has an early night as the school day can be very tiring. They should be in bed by 7pm to ensure a good night’s sleep.
