There are 4 members of staff that work in the Nursery across the week. Photos of staff are below to help you to match names to faces!
There are lots of routines in Nursery, each developing and teaching new skills to your child. Information about these is included below o that your child can get the most out of their time in Nursery;
Our colour table helps the children to learn their colours and the colour of it is changed at the beginning of each week on a Monday. The children are invited to bring in something from home to match the colour on the colour table or can also find something in Nursery to add to it. Please label items bought from home with your child's name.
Show and Tell
Show and Tell for Nursery takes place on a Tuesday and will begin on Tuesday September 18th.
The children are invited to bring in something to talk about e.g. photograph, bus or train ticket, map of a place visited.
Please ensure that you label your child's item with their name before putting into the show and tell box in class.
Both Morning and afternoon Nursery visit the school book bus on a Wednesday, which is situated to the right of the main gates, next to the Sure start centre. This is an opportunity for the children to read/share a book of their choice, with an adult from the vast range of fiction and non-fiction texts available on the bus.
Activity packs are full of fun activities that you can take home to do with your child. Each week, book bags are collected in on a Wednesday and then given out to you at the end of the session on a Thursday with the activity pack inside. These can be kept at home for the week and returned the following Wednesday for a new activity pack. Please look after all of the toys/activities given in the activity packs. Pictures, tracings and colourings can be kept at home.
Nursery children do not need to change for PE but take off their shoes and socks to take part. Therefore we ask that you send your child to school in sensible shoes they can attempted to take on and off independently.

Our Nursery has 2 class teddies, Zap and Flash who go home with a chosen child for the weekend on a Friday. The teddies will come home with an adventure book with empty pages to be filled with writing, drawings or photos of the things they have done over the weekend and then returned on Monday. The adventures will be shared with the class during carpet time on Monday.
This half term began with us finding out all about each other. We looked at our faces and talked about our hair colour, eye colour, skin tone and compared to our friends and we enjoyed making faces using different art materials in the creative area.
We also read stories and talked during circle time about our families and about how many brothers, sisters or pets we have. The children enjoyed bringing in a picture of their family to tell us about for 'Show & Tell'.
Below are some photos of the children and their family photos, our family tree display and some of the faces we made.

We will have lots of creative activities based around these celebrations and discuss them during our circle time.
