Welcome to Nursery!

Welcome to the start of a new academic year. We look forward to getting to know the children and working with you to give them lots of exciting learning opportunities.

Our theme for this first half term is “All About Me”.

We will be learning about what we need to keep us healthy, such as the food we eat and having a good night’s sleep. The children will think about growing up, how we start as a baby and develop into toddlers, children, then eventually adults. We will encourage them to think about who they are, how they are special and unique, each with their own abilities, but also to accept and respect the uniqueness of others.

The children will learn about what goes on inside their bodies, about their skeleton and how their blood is carried around their bodies, as well as about their senses – sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste, completing activities to reinforce this, and of course their emotions.

There will be lots of opportunities for role-play, including a home corner, a baby clinic and a baby shop.

Alongside all of this theme based learning, there will be many activities available whereby the children can build on basic skills such as speaking and listening, cutting, mark making and fine motor control.

Once the children are settled, we will begin our whole group maths and phonics sessions giving them the chance to take part in fun and exciting activities with their friends.

Story time is an important part of our day and the children will have a story during every session. We are a “Storytelling School” and the children will learn a story each half term by heart – the first of which will be “Fox’s Socks”.
