Nursery

Welcome to Nursery Class - Almond 

ShapeMiss Rowe is teaching in Nursery class. Welcome! 

It has been lovely getting to know all our nursery children and families in Autumn 1. Now the children are settled in to the nursery routine and environment, we will be focussing on developing their language and literacy skills, as well as supporting their social skills. This information will help you to support your child’s learning. 

Key Times 

Reading 

 Each week your child will have the opportunity to choose a reading book to take home. Mrs Oakley reads this book with them and writes down their responses in the reading diary. Please take time to read this book with your child at home – they often love hearing the same story many times – and writing a comment in the diary. 

Learning Journeys 

Each child has a book called a Learning Journey which contains photos and observations. It is a portrait of your child’s interests, their learning style and the range of activities that they have taken part in. It will chart their development over the course of the year. You can ask to see your child’s learning journey at any time, but we will also be having a ‘Book Look’ soon, when all parents will be invited into the classroom to look at their child’s record. 

 

Key Times 

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 gate at 11:25, please be there to collect them promptly.  

The nursery school gates open at 12:30 in the afternoon and close at 12:55. 

All children are collected from nursery class in the afternoon.  

The gates are open by 3:15 and close at 3:30. 

 

Outdoor 

Clothes 

Now that the weather is getting wetter and colder, children need a warm or waterproof coat as they have access to the outside area every day. It would also be helpful if they can bring in named wellie boots as the grassed areas can get muddy. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What are we learning? 

 

Some of our learning will be based on the question ‘Why do leaves turn crispy?’ and we will be investigating seasonal changes outside. In literacy we will be reading stories by Julia Donaldson, such as Stick Man and the Gruffalo which are set in natural environments, as well as Christmas stories. 

  

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 making certain that your child makes progress in all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage
