The Nursery class is led by a Teacher and two Early Years Assistants. Children are encouraged to participate in a range of stimulating, fun learning activities to prepare them for school including phonics, sounds time, pencil control, group activities and much much more. Our Nursery Class ensures that every child gains the most from their nursery experience and helps make their journey into reception an easy and happy one.

Our nursery class is in a bright open-plan space for children aged 3-4. The nursery class room is set up for learning through play, with a role play, small world toys, story corner, block play, mark making, creative area and a mud kitchen amongst others. 

Summer Term

This term we will be looking at some new topics 'The seaside' and 'On Safari '. 

The Seaside

We will be reading the stories, 'Clem and Crab' and 'The See Saw'. We will be thinking about our environment and how to look after it by making sure we put or rubbish in the bin and not littering so we don't hurt the animals. We will have a teddy's bear picnic with Year 3 to enjoy the beautiful environment of our school grounds.

On Safari

Nursery will be learning about how other countries are different to ours, how they have different environments, animals and how people do things using the story 'Lila and the secret of Rain'. We will create different models of animals, make binoculars to spot animals from our role play safari jeep and paint some beautiful sunsets using water colours.

As our older children get ready to move up to Reception we will also be doing lots of transition activities within the Reception classroom and with the staff.

Tapestry 

Remember to look on Tapestry frequently to see some of the amazing things we are getting up to! We will continue to keep updating Tapestry with any important information as well as any observations we make on your children. Alternatively we would love you to upload anything that your child is doing at home as we love to learn about your child's learning journey at home.
