Useful Information

Our new Nursery cohort has settled into their pre-school year and we look forward to the many opportunities and challenges ahead.

The first half of this term will be an exploration of who we are, and our focus of “Why do you love me so much?” will look at friendships and relationships at school and in the wider community. Autumn features heavily in our learning this term, as our second topic of “Why Do Leaves Go Crispy” looks at changes in the outdoor area.

Our featured book “Each Peach Pear Plum” introduces a wealth of traditional tales and poems as part of our Talk for Writing programme and in the second half of the term we will look at “Dear Zoo” and “Dear Santa”. Other elements of literacy this term include promoting good listening skills through Phase One phonics and gross motor development through Write Dance.

The celebrations and special events we will look at this term include Harvest Festival, Diwali and Halloween in October; the Rugby World Cup, Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day in November; Hanukkah, Advent and Christmas in December.

The Summer term brings two almost full Nursery sessions each day as we settle-in the younger children and prepare the older cohort for their move into Reception. Outdoor activities play a large part in what we do and this term we are introducing both sessions to a programme of Forest School activities. 

Our new topic for the first half of the term is called “Do dragons exist?”, and explores imagination. We have accompanied this with a newly revamped role play area, full of dressing up and imaginary play. After the half term break, we will be considering "How many pebbles on the beach?” and lots of outdoor learning connected to the seaside.

In phonics, our older children have completed Phase Two of the Letters and Sounds syllabus and are working towards the single digraph sounds in Phase Three. The younger children are working on the BLAST scheme to support their pre-phonics work.

Our focus this term for all children is recognising (and forming where appropriate) the numbers 0-9. Children are also focusing on recognising (and writing where appropriate) their own names.  

Throughout this term we will continue to learn about festivals and special days including Ramadan and Father's Day.

Spring term has brought a number of changes to Nursery. The addition of 15 new children means that we are now almost full in both morning and afternoon sessions. 

Our new topic for the first half of the term is called “Is it shiny?”, and gives us an opportunity to investigate our outdoor and indoor areas to apply new vocabulary for shiny and dull objects. After the half term break we will look at healthy eating with our “Why can’t I have chocolate for breakfast?” topic.

In phonics we have already learned to write and blend 12 sounds as we work our way through Phase Two of the Letters and Sounds syllabus.

Throughout this term we will continue to learn about festivals and special days including Lunar New Year (East Asian New Year), Valentine's Day, Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day), Festival of Holi and Mothering Sunday.
