Nursery

Welcome to Nursery Class  

 

This year nursery class will be known as River Thames class.  

Miss Cockell is teaching nursery class this year assisted by Ms Picollo. 

Welcome to Nursery class! We hope you find the information below useful as your child continues their nursery education with us. This information will help you support your child at home with the organisation of their week and their learning at home. 

Key Times 

Homework 

 In nursery class, our families are invited to share their home learning by uploading photographs & videos to their child’s learning journal via Parent Share. We also have a mobile library which will be located outside of the Nursery classroom.  Families are able to loan books to share at home.  Reading to your child regularly will develop their attention & listening skills as well as their vocabulary & understanding of the world. 

Key Times 

The nursery school gates open at 8:30 in the morning.  The gate will be locked at 8.40. 

The children going home at lunchtime are collected from the nursery door at 11:30, please be there to collect them promptly.  

The nursery school gates open at 12:30 in the afternoon for children who attend afternoon sessions. 

All children are collected from the nursery door in the afternoon.  

The gates are open by 3:30.  

 

  

 What are we learning? 

This term’s topic is, ‘Ready Steady Go!’ 

We will be exploring a number of popular children’s books this term. The children will listen to longer stories, re-telling them and responding to questions about them. Our Key texts will help to develop the children’s understanding regarding journeys and adventures using different modes of transport.  

The children will continue to develop their skills when using one-handed tools like scissors and they will further develop their independent, self-care skills, focussing on their ability to dress and undress independently. 

We will be talking about our feelings and begin to consider how others might be feeling as well as developing an understanding of the rules and expectations within the Nursery provision.  

The children will continue to develop their phonological awareness. We will be practicing reading and writing set 1 letter sounds, that were introduced last half term, focusing on accurate letter formation and learning to Fred talk simple words to develop the children’s reading skills. 

We will continue thinking about the similarities and differences between people and their families, discussing the differences between countries and talking about we what we see, in the world around us, using a wide range of vocabulary. 

 

How can I help at home? 

One of the keyways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. We also encourage the nursery children to be independent when changing shoes – Velcro fastenings enable this, and putting on coats for outdoor learning, please support them at home with their dressing skills.   Other than this, the main way you can help is by making time to read stories and enjoy songs and rhymes every day at home. It is the most effective way of ensuring that your child makes progress in all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.  

Our outdoor learning and gardens are open every day.  As the weather begins to get warmer, we ask that you apply sun cream to your child before school and provide a sun hat as we are outside in all weathers exploring the world around us as much as we can.  

Throughout the school year, you will be able to contribute to your child’s learning journal via Parent Share.  You can upload photographs and videos of the experiences & learning which takes place at home.
