Now nursery is closed please find the challenge grid with some suggested activities you could do with your child when not in school. You may do your own activities too, and find inventive ways to play and learn. We would love for you to share with us on tapestry with photos and comments. Also you can ask questions too regarding their learning, development and behaviours - I will do my best to help and support. Ultimately keep well and safe during this difficult time.
Here is a list of useful links to help support children during school closures.
We return from our half term break to “Money, Money Money week”. In nursery we have created a role play cafe, with a mixture of healthy and unhealthy food. We plan to have a sale to sell homemade pizza with healthy toppings and have made pretty table decorations also to sell to raise money for our school and for charity.
Welcome back after the Christmas and New Year break. We welcome three new families to our nursery class, we hope you are very happy with your new adventure with us.
Our half term topic (after the first few weeks) is Animals Beasts and Dragons. We will explore Chinese New Year, jungle animals and small bugs. We will find out information about the animals and represent their different patterns and features. An outline of the plan is below if you scroll down.
We have got stuck in with a big focus on the book “Naughty Bus”. We have laughed and been surprised at his mischief and re created some of his antics in our own play. Messy but fun!
We have role played, learned some new catchy songs and read, and reread and reread the book.
We have a cave in nursery. Delilah the dragon has come to visit us and she has bought her sparkly treasure for us to explore in the dark with torches. Luckily she is a friendly sort of dragon but sometimes a little noisy! We have had great fun this week role playing dragons and exploring the effects of light on resources.
We went for a welly walk this week to look for signs of Autumn and change. We found plenty of brown and yellow leaves and different size sticks. We went into the woods and found sycamore seeds too. We threw them in the air to watch them spiral down. Back at the classroom we have made Autumn pictures and sung Autumn songs.
Our Meet the teacher meeting was on the 19th September. Don't worry if you missed it, the powerpoint I talked through is attached to the bottom of the page.
We very much look forward to welcoming the new families for the Autumn term ahead. We have been invited in to meet all the children and begin to get to know them and now we are raring to go! We will have a busy term ahead, please see the topic plan below of possible avenues of learning but we always follow the children’s interests and ideas. We go outside everyday so suitable clothing is essential, raincoat, wellies in the rain, and gloves and thicker coat when the weather gets cooler. Spare clothes are really helpful for if your child gets wet or has an accident. Clothes can be kept in a draw string bag on their named peg. There is no need to pack snacks or drinks, we will provide these for your child. Nursery times are 8.50am-11.50am. If you think you maybe late picking up your child please phone the office so they can get a message to us.
If you have any questions please speak to either Miss Hancock or myself, Miss Wilson.

This outlines the potential learning for Spring Term 2. The plan is flexible to allow for exploration of children’s own fascinations and interests.
