Nursery

Welcome to Nursery Class

 

This year nursery class will be known as Usain Bolt class.

Mrs King is teaching nursery class this year assisted by Mrs Nawel and Mrs Oakley.

Welcome to Nursery class! We hope you find the information below useful as your child starts 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 emailing in photographs and videos of family experiences to their child’s profile, which is set up by Mrs King. Each child also has a learning journal in class where their learning achievements are recorded. Parents are invited to complete WOW forms to record any home learning achievements that will then be added to their journals.   

Trips

This half term we are focussing on settling in our new children and giving them time to get used to their new setting and members of staff.  

Key Times

The nursery school gates open at 8:30 in the morning.

The children going home at lunchtime are collected from the nursery door at 11:25, please be there to collect them promptly.

The nursery school gates open at 12:30 in the afternoon.

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

The gates are open by 3:30. Please be punctual when dropping off and collecting your child as the nursery entrance is shared by additional year groups with their own start and end time to ensure social distancing.

 

 

 

 What are we learning?

This term’s topic is, ‘Why do you love me so much?’

We will be exploring our nursery resources and equipment and learn how to select resources for ourselves to encourage independent learning. The children will be learning about themselves and what makes them unique, as well as learning about our new friends and families in the nursery. We will be reading stories related to this topic such as Owl Babies, So Much and How Much Do I Love You.

 

 

How can I help at home?

One of the key ways 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. Please remember a named waterproof coat as we are outside in all weathers exploring the world around us as much as we can. In hot weather please provide a sun hat and apply sunscreen before school. If any parents can donate plants or seeds for the allotment, please speak to Mrs King.

Throughout the school year, your child’s profile will be sent home at regular intervals so you may celebrate their achievements at home and at school. We do hope you enjoy looking at and contributing to them while your child is in Nursery class.
