Our Class – Nursery


Welcome to Nursery

We have a very busy year ahead of us.  We are going to start the year by making friends and feeling secure in the environment.   It is important that we understand the rules and boundaries in Nursery that help to keep us safe.

In Nursery we learn through play.  We have short teaching sessions to introduce ideas and then consolidate new skills and ideas through play.  We will be learning to count, order and recognise numbers and exploring shapes.  In literacy we will be sharing stories, rhymes and poems.  We will be finding out about print in books and in the environment. To support this a  pack containing rhyming books for you to share with your child will be given out each week.  Two children each week will receive the packs on a Monday and will need to bring them back on Friday.

P.E. will take place on a Thursday, could you please make sure your child has a pair of pumps and school P.E.T.shirt.

Book bags need to be in school every day and learning journeys will be sent home on a Friday to be returned to us on Monday. Please share news of your weekend in the learning journeys so that we can talk with your child about their experiences.

During the year we will take part in a Christmas Play, assembly and trips out.  We explore the outdoor area in all weathers so a pair of wellingtons in school is essential.   We  invite you to parents evening, a phonics evening and end with a report.

We are looking forward to working with your family this year.
