Welcome to the Nursery Web Page

Our Nursery Classes:

Buttercups, Daisies and Sunflowers

Our learning journey this half-term is ‘Journeys’.

This term’s Value is Fairness’

Our focus story this week  is called ‘The Duck in the Truck.

We will be making our own version of the story to enable us to use story language and learn new vocabulary.

This term’s value is Fairness. Big question: Was the duck fair to leave the other animals in the mud after they’d help him?  This also links with our PSHE Scarf activities about ‘looking after others.’

Our Phonics focus is rhyming words and phrases in stories. We will also be exploring this using rhyming tubs with tactile objects to support children in making connections with real objects.

We will be continuing to master our counting skills.  With an adult, we will  count out objects to load the trucks and match the correct number.

We may also choose to get creative and make transport pictures using shapes.

To support our physical development we will be starting Dance where a dance instructor will be working with Buttercups, Daisies and Sunflowers once a week.

 Have a great week!

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.
