Hello! This is our Nursery Class.
Children can start nursery from the age of 2 years old. Our teachers in every day are Mrs Price, Mrs Perkins and Mrs Bufton. Some sessions we are also joined by Mrs Yeomans and Mrs Hatcher.
This picture is of Nursery’s World Book Day 2019 celebrations, when we all dressed up as our favourite book character. There are only some us in the picture because we all come to school at different times during the week.
We take part in lots of activities: drawing and painting, building and construction, gardening, cooking, reading and stories, messy play, role play, junk modelling, singing, music and much, much more! We can choose to do all our activities inside or outside. Some of us go to the school hall once a week to do PE and we join together with the Reception class for assembly. This is an important part of the transition process, preparing our older children for big school. Every session we do group work based upon phonics, maths and “talk time.” At the end of each session we share a whole class song / rhyme time and listen to a story.
Each week we have a different focus, linked to the topic of the half term and of course the children’s interests. This year our topics will include:-
We have a “sound of the week” and we learn a new nursery rhyme, which we share with our parents and carers at home, via our weekly newsletter. Each child gets to bring either Bookbear or Reader Rabbit home for a few days during each term, to share a special book and take part in family life. The children are encouraged to share their time with Reader Rabbit or Bookbear with the other children in nursery at circle time. We encourage the children to bring items in from home to share at circle time. If you have any questions about nursery life, please feel free to speak to a member of staff. Thank you
