Welcome to Nursery
Mrs Flack, Mrs Norman and Mrs Hunter would like to welcome you to Nursery class! This is your child's first experience of school life and we aim to fill each day with fun and engaging activities. We learn best by playing with our friends and using a range of different resources across our indoor and outdoor classrooms. The areas we have on offer include creative, shape and numbers, the natural world, construction, role play, literacy and sensory play e.g. sand and water. We also have lots of opportunities to develop our communication skills, for example through singing, reading stories, rhymes, playing instruments and dancing. Some of these activities take place outside or in the hall, and we also make use the large apparatus and play with the parachute to develop our motor skills.
During the year we look at different topics every half term. As the seasons change, we look at our local environment and celebrate the different festivals and cultural activities that our classmates enjoy. Curriculum overviews with additional details for each topic will be uploaded half termly.
We aim for all children to be happy and settled in our nursery class and we value partnership with parents. Please make use of your Tapestry account to view your child's learning regularly or see below for weekly updates.
We have been exploring the large wheeled toys and learning how to pedal. We have been learning how to push ourselves along using one foot to operate the scooters.
In nursery this week we have been celebrating Harvest. We have been printing using different vegetables and learning a song about a Farmer.
In nursery this week we have been painting self portraits. We used a mirror to look at our features, our skin colour and our hair colour. We then painted our portrait using the colours that we thought represented us.
We have had a wonderful first week in nursery. We have made new friends and explored many areas both inside the classroom and outside in the nursery garden. We are learning about the routine of the day and how many new activities we have to play with.
