Welcome to Nursery Class
Miss Rowe is teaching in nursery class, we will be known as Almond class.
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.
In nursery class, our families are invited to share their home learning by sending in photographs and videos of family experiences to their child’s profile, which is set up by Miss Rowe when they start nursery. Each child has a learning journal in their book bags, they are encouraged to mark make and draw pictures to illustrate the stories they choose each week to read at home. We also set ‘challenges’ related to our topics for children to complete at home with their families.
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. However we have some exciting trips planned for later in the year and welcome parents who would like to accompany us.
The nursery school gates open at 8:30 in the morning and close at 8:55.
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 and close at 12:50.
All children are collected from the nursery door in the afternoon.
The gates are open by 3:15 and close at 3:30.
What are we learning?
This term’s topic is, ‘All About Me!’
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 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 ensuring that you read stories and enjoy songs and rhymes at home. It is the most effective way of ensuring that your child makes progress in all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We welcome all families to use our reading corner each day before the gates close, the children love to sit with their families and hear them read in school. The children are also encouraged to bring in a chatterbox item to talk about at school with their peers. Look out for chatterbox challenge stickers in your child’s learning journal.
Our outdoor learning and allotments are open every day. Please remember a waterproof coat as we are outside in all weathers exploring the world around us as much as we can. If any parents can donate plants or seeds for the allotment, or help us care for the raised beds please speak to Mrs Rowe.
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.
