Welcome to the Nursery

Hello!   ಹಲೋ!   ഹലോ!   Dzień dobry!  Olá!   ਸਤ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ ! 

Summer term How the year has flown; hopefully the sun will shine and we will have lots of learning linked to the better weather with a topic on mini-beasts. We will be reading stories such as “The very hungry caterpillar”, “What the ladybird heard” and “Snail trail”. Sharing stories with the children helps them to learn how to read a story- you can point to the words, talk about the pictures, use vocabulary such as "characters" or "the setting" and ask questions such as "What would you do?" or "What will happen next?" We will also be finding and observing mini-beasts, counting legs, wings and spots, making spiral and symmetrical patterns and much, much more. In RE we will be learning all about the Holy Spirit when we celebrate Pentecost and then learning about different celebrations, in particular weddings. As part of this topic we will be visiting St Peter’s Church and asking parents to send in wedding photos (of their wedding or a wedding they have attended) and perhaps come into Nursery to talk about wedding traditions!


Mr Bromley will continue to teach PE on a Thursday and we will continue to access the school field and Forest School. We will continue to learn a letter sound each week using the scheme “Read, Write, Inc”. This will be developed through “Busy Fingers” activities where we develop the children’s fine motor skills. You will be introduced to the letter sound and our special nursery rhyme of the week via the Dojo classroom.
