NURSERY

Summer Term 2019

Welcome to the Summer term! We are hoping that the sun will continue shining to help our plants and flowers grow in our outdoor area. The children will be involved in potting plants and planting flowers/veg and taking turns to water them. We will also look at different life cycles and hopefully be able to observe some caterpillars turn into butterflies. We will also continue to follow children’s interests when planning our classroom resources and activities.

Keep an eye out on the noticeboard for our stay and play dates, as well as shared story times and our ‘Dads, Lads and Grandads’ day. We will also be practising for sports day and learning new songs ahead of our graduation.

We have had lots of positive responses to the introduction of Tapestry journal. We hope that you have enjoyed seeing photos and videos of what your child has been getting up to at nursery. Staff have really enjoyed seeing the fantastic things you have been doing at home too!

Thank you for your continued support

The Nursery Team

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...

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....

Jack and the Beanstalk comes to life !

One of our favourite stories in Nursery is Jack and the Beanstalk which was made even more exciting when the Giant came to visit us ! He hid some magic beans and we had to follow a photo hunt all around the school grounds to find them ! We planted them and have...

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 !"
