Welcome to Nursery - Hummingbird Class

Mrs. King is teaching in our Nursery Class. Welcome!

Welcome to Nursery! 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


 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 Mrs King when they start nursery. Each child has a book review sheet 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 term we would like to invite visitors into Nursery to share their experiences with the children. If you feel you could come in and talk to the children about your job, family, a talent or hobby please do let Mrs King know. We are happy to facilitate you in any way that we can, and help to provide activities linked to your topic. It is a wonderful experience for all children, and will help us to get to know our friends and families.

Inspire Workshops

The topic of the inspire workshop next term will be ‘How children learn and helping parents help children learn’. We would welcome parent involvement in this, and look forward to seeing you then.

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.


What are we learning?

This term’s topic is, ‘Patterns’

 To begin our topic the children will be wearing their home clothes to school on Friday 20th April, so we may talk about the patterns we can see on their clothes. Will we find spots, stripes, repeated patterns? How will we describe them to our friends? We will be exploring patterns around us, for example, in nature, musical and mathematical to name a few. Our topic books will include ‘Aliens love Underpants, Rosie’s Walk, Elmer’s story and Pass the jam Jim.


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 and personal care skills.   Other than this, the main way you can help is by establishing daily story, songs and rhyme time at home. It is the most effective way of helping your child make progress in all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Additional Information

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 reading record book.

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 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.
