Nursery

Teacher: Miss T Bagley

Early Years Practitioners: Mrs A Cooper, Mrs L Boden, Miss R Bailey and Mrs N Livingstone

We love to learn in our bright and colourful classroom, but we especially enjoy using our outside classroom. There are lots of different areas to play in as well as bikes, scooters and a fantastic climbing area. We do as much learning outside as we do inside!

What we are learning

In Nursery we have all settled into our classroom and have learnt how to follow instructions and classroom rules whilst at school! The children have learnt how to play and work together nicely and also know how to be kind to each other!

We have had lots of different topics that we have explored and have been busy doing lots of lovely activities! We have looked at bears as a topic where we had a teddy bears picnic, went on a bear hunt and learnt about the different bears in the world! We have started looking at traditional tales such as ‘The 3 little pigs’, ‘The gingerbread man’, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and many more! Our topics will cover lots of learning for the children and they will develop skills such as writing and number skills. We will be creating story maps to help us learn the stories so that we can retell them without any help from an adult! Our upcoming topics are very exciting too and include ‘Mini beasts’, ‘Pirates’ and ‘Under the Sea’.

Helping us at home

All the children in nursery have been practising writing their names in school. You could help your child by practising their first and second name at home. We have also learnt some sounds at school and the children have been working really hard to remember them! Each week the children bring home a reading book. Reading enables the children to develop their communication and language skills and you can help this by reading with your child each week.
