Nursery

Welcome to Nursery!

Thank you for visiting the Nursery website page. This is the place for all the latest information as well as the place to keep up to date with all of the exciting things we get up to. We hope you enjoy finding out what we have been learning about. 

Morning session - 8.30am - 11.30am

 

The Staff in Nursery are Mrs Khan (Nursery Teacher), Ms Sumayyah Vasa (Temporary Teaching Assistant) 

 

Class Ethos

Our aim is to create a happy, safe, caring environment where children develop a love for learning!

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a great Christmas and restful break!!

 We hope that you have had an enjoyable break and would like to welcome you back to a full packed New Year!! The children will have lots of opportunities to learn new and exciting concepts. 

The children will be learning to access the different areas of the Early years curriculum. Children will be encouraged to engage with the learning environment and start to be independent in choosing their activities. They will be encouraged to share their achievements with their key workers and peers. Children will start to recognise their names by selecting their own name and also start to write some recognisable letters.

We will continue to encourage our skill based learning in our nursery environment. This will include using scissors, holding a pencil correctly, using PVA and glue sticks correctly and start to make friends.

This half term will be based on scientific enquiries/experiments. We will begin by looking at the story book, ‘The snowman’. The children will be exploring the science behind ‘change of state’. We will be looking at melting and how ice turns to water and vice versa. This will be followed by "The 3 pigs", children will be looking at various materials and their properties. We will be looking at durability as well as which materials will keep us warm. We will be exploring Mondrian Art for this term.

We will be celebrating Chinese New Year and looking at ordinal numbers e.g first and last as well as naming different animals.

Children will continue to expand their phonic knowledge by moving their bodies to different instrumental sounds. They will copy a sequence of body sounds and identify body sounds. We will continue to look at quiet and loud sounds in our environment and use our voices to make long/short sounds as well as fast and slow sounds.

If you have any questions about anything, please do not hesitate to ask one of our Early Years Staff - Our doors are always open! We look forward to working with you, to make this a fun, learning experience for your child. 

Mrs Khan and Ms Vasa  

Reminders...

·        Children in Nursery often play and learn outside so it’s very important that your child comes to school with appropriate clothing. As the weather gets colder they will need a warm coat, hat and gloves. 

·        Please label all your child’s clothing and their school book bag.

·        Jewellery is not allowed in school except for simple stud earrings.

·        It is also very useful for your child to have a set of spare clothes in a named bag which can stay on their peg just in case they need to change for any reason.

 Please note: The morning session starts at 8.30am and finishes at 11.30am. Please ensure that your child is on time for Nursery so that they do not miss important teaching time. 

 

Things you can do at home to support your child: 

·        Help your child practise recognising and writing the letters in their name. 

·        Mark making and practise letter formation. This could be by drawing the letter in           the air, in sand, painting or using a pencil. 

·        Take your children to the library. 

·        Share books, discuss the story, characters and talk about their feelings. 

·        Encourage your child to put on items of clothing themselves (especially coats)

·        Count steps, coins, family members and places at the dinner table.

·        Ask your child questions about environment/home life. E.g What is the weather             like?

·        Let your child make mistakes and learn from them
