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 nursery children and their grown ups.

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.

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.

 "Wows"  Parental Contribution

We love to hear how your children are learning at home. Please regularly fill in a wow form - (they are located in the cloakroom area and will be sent home too) every time your child achieves some significant learning at home. We will celebrate them in class, the children love to stand up and hear us all say "WOW....." and give a big clap. It might be riding their bike for the first time, noticing the growing flowers, eating a new fruit or vegetable or sharing their school day with you.
