Please ensure your child brings spare clothes to school to keep on their peg. These may be needed for a number of reasons including messy play and accidents. 

Please keep up to date with everything that is happening in Nursery on this page and on Class Dojo. If you need to speak to one of the Nursery members of staff feel free to do so at the start or end of the day.

What and how do we learn in Nursery?

In Nursery we are encouraged to explore, create, be curious, messy and have fun. Through all of this, we learn! 

All of our learning is focused on the 'Characteristics of Effective Learning'; Playing and Exploring, Active Learning and Creating and Thinking Critically. Our classrooms and outdoor area are set up to enhance your child's learning and development of skills in these areas. 



Our Projects

In Nursery your child tells us what they love and we teach them all about it! We also base our projects on the experiences and skills that we know the children need to learn about from our regular assessments.  We like to ensure your child loves to learn and the way to do that is to learn about what they love. We use our knowledge of the children and observations of their learning to create lots of exciting and practical learning opportunities around their ideas and Characteristics of Effective Learning. 

Autumn A - Big Question... Why is it marvellous to be me?

This term we will be learning all about ourselves and what makes us unique. We will begin by looking at all our favourite things as well as thinking about our similarities and differences with our friends. Have a look below at some of the activities we will be completing this half term.

Autumn B - Big Question... What is your favourite celebration?

This term we will be learning all about different celebrations. We will look at different celebrations in turn using key texts to focus our learning. We will use each key text to support is in creating different pieces of writing from instructions to cards, captions and lists.

Spring A - Big Question... What animal would I like as a pet?

This term we will be learning all about different animals. We will use the book 'Dear Zoo' as a basis for our learning and then we will rewrite the story using animals that we have learnt about in our lessons. We will also use the 'That's not my books' to help us to describe the animals that we learn about.

Spring A - Big Question... What animal would I like as a pet?

This term we will be learning all about space. We will use the book 'Whatever Next' to explore the things you can find in space. We will also use some non-fiction texts to support our learning. We will be building our own rockets and we will finish with a super learning day where we will spend the day as an astronaut in space.

Summer A - Big Question... What is in the big, blue sea?

This term we will be learning all about animals that live under the sea. We will use the book commotion in the ocean to help us to learn about different animals in the sea. We will also use the book Rainbow Fish to understand the importance of being a good friend. As the country celebrates the coronation of King Charles we will mark the occasion with a super learning week and a whole school celebration.

Summer B - Big Question... How can I move?

For some of us this will be our last half term in nursery before we move into reception. We will use this topic to discuss the different ways in which we can move around the world. We will  be using the book 'The Journey Home from Grandpa's house' to support our topic. Towards the end of the half term we will focus on transition activities and preparing the children for the expectations of their new class.
