Spring Term 2019

Welcome back and a very happy new year to all our Nursery children and their grown-ups. We hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

This term we continue to follow the children’s interests to help us plan our activities. We will also be planning activities related to upcoming special occasions such as Valentines Day, Friendship week, Easter and Red Nose day. This term we will be using monies raised from the Christmas performances and photographs to do cooking and baking, and growing, as well as buying sensory resources for messy play. Keep an eye out for future website posts about what we have been doing!

Last half term we introduced Plan, Do, Review. We started off using physical props from each of the classroom areas, this was used as a talking point. We have noticed a massive difference in the children’s confidence in speaking and it has encouraged them to think carefully about where they are going to work and what they are going to do. This term we will be introducing visual symbols for the classroom areas. This will help develop children’s recall to talk about what they did and relive past events. If you would like further information about this and its importance, please keep an eye out for our Plan, Do, Review Stay and Play session (letters to go out this term) 

We are also planning our annual Nursery trip. Please keep an eye out for a letter this half term with more information.

Please also check the nursery noticeboard for shared story and special book times for this term. Due to the popularity of the last stay and play session we will be offering 4 more this term. We hope you can join us!

Thank you for your continued support

The most important meal of the day !

Eating breakfast together is an important part of our morning Nursery session. We can choose toast or cereal and milk. We learn lots of social skills and we can all now use a knife to spread our own butter. We are going to ask our grown ups if we can practise at home...

Nursery numbers !

We have been practising how to write numbers in Nursery and we think you will agree that we are pretty good...

Sharing stories in Nursery

We LOVE stories and we always look forward to our grown ups coming in to join us for storytime every fortnight. Sometimes Mrs Yielder reads one of our favourite stories to everyone and sometimes we share stories with our own grown ups. Some of us love stories so much...

Outdoor learning !

Outdoor learning is an important part of our Nursery curriculum and the children enjoy lots of opportunities to work outside. We have recently set up a new digging area and the children love searching for minibeasts...

Teddy hospital

The children in Nursery found a torn teddy and wondered what to do with him. Some children suggested we took him to hospital and so we did ! We set up our own role play hospital and the children loved taking on the roles of nurses, doctors and receptionists....

Nursery children love to write !

 The children have been practising hard to write their names. Some of them don't even need to look at their       name card for support !   Some of the children are now starting to write their surnames too...

Big apparatus fun !

The children in Nursery have been having great fun climbing, balancing, rolling and jumping in the PE hall. Michael Thompson says "It's my favourite thing to do...
