Nursery

Welcome To Nursery

In Nursery we have Mrs Brotherhood, Miss Tideswell and 26 delightful children. We work in family groups- Bumble Bees with Mrs Brotherhood and Ladybirds with Miss Tideswell. We also share Mrs Shingler with Reception Class.

We would like to give a very warm welcome to all our new nursery children and their grown ups.

 Theme Autumn Term

Our theme is Traditional tales, we start with the tale of Goldilocks and The Three Bears, then we will look at Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and finally The Frog Prince.

We are settling into school life, making friends and listening carefully to our teachers.

We are very busy learning the daily routine and getting involved in outdoor and indoor activities completing all our 'jobs'.

Part of our day is saying our prayers - we say prayers in the morning, at lunchtime and at the end of the day.

We participate in small group time, large group time, Phonics, RE and PE sessions.

We drink milk in the morning, eat dinner in the dinner hall, share bread and salad in the afternoon and fruit to end the day.

Home Learning

Please read daily with your child for approx 10 mins. Your child has been given a library book, a reading book and a reading diary for you and us to comment in.

We are teaching Phase two letters and sounds.  Your child will be given letter cards to practise letter sounds everyday. Please say the sound each letter makes and then build words up blending and segmenting to read eg c-a-t or h-u-ff

Practical Homework will be set weekly on a Thursday to be completed by the following Tuesday.

We go outside everyday so please make sure your child has a coat and suitable footwear in school.

PE 

We will change for PE as soon as we feel the children are able. Your child should have a labelled PE kit on their coat peg at school. Our PE day is Thursday.

Celebration Assembly

Every Friday we have a celebration assembly, where children's work and achievement is celebrated. We have awards for Worker Of The Week, Star Of The Week and the Lunchtime Supervisor award.

 WOW's

Please fill in a wow form - (they are located in the cloakroom area) every time your child achieves some significant learning at home. The children love to stand up and hear us all say "WOW....." and give a big clap.
