Welcome to Nursery!


We are very excited to welcome our new Nursery children this year. We are looking forward to a fantastic year full of fun and learning!


Please make sure your children have everything they need to start their exciting first year in Nursery such as book bags, spare change of clothes, water bottles, wellies and reading records once they receive them. Please make sure everything is clearly labelled with your child's name and class.


Our topic this half term is "All About Me!". Over this topic, the children will talk about themselves, likes, dislikes, their families, bodies and keeping healthy.

This half term the children will also begin learning across the prime areas, looking at, communication and language, personal social and emotional development and physical development.  We will do this through circle time, adult-led activities but mostly child-initiated play.  We will also be encouraging your child to become an independent learner, motivated and critical thinker.  


Finally, please regularly check your child's online Learning Journal on Tapestry either via the website or the app. We will post updates of your child's week and their learning as well as special activities!
