Hello and welcome to our new year in Nursery.


We have Oak class with Miss O’Neill who comes from Ireland! We are helped by Miss Nembhard  and Miss Morgan.


Our painting for this term is Girls Reading by Renoir, and our topic will be ‘Fairy Tales and Traditional Rhymes’. We will be reading and learning about many exciting stories such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Gingerbread Man and the Three Little Pigs. We will also be developing our knowledge on the world around us. We will be learning all about our 5 different senses, Chinese New Year and discussing where we live.



It’s now the second term and the children are settled in their learning environment. The children are all displaying more independent skills which we are so pleased about.


This term, we will continue to focus on reading and mark marking, so please ensure that you read daily with your child at home and use the reading diaries to record your child’s achievements. Your child’s book will be changed every Friday. This 1:1 support will also develop their communication and language skills. The children will also be learning to write their own name. It would be fantastic if you could practise doing this with your child at home.


We will be teaching formal PE in Spring 2 which is exciting, every Tuesday! Please remember that your child does not require a PE kit just yet. The children will only need to take off their jumpers and shoes beforehand.  


To help your child learn the most important thing you can do is read daily with your child. Just one story a day will help your child learn to speak and teach children key skills which they can use later to learn to read independently.


Teaching your children to dress independently, taking off and putting on their coats and shoes, looking after their own belongings and general self-care (going to the toilet by themselves, washing their hands and eating while sitting at a table)

We follow a creative curriculum and place importance on children’s interests so please keep us updated with their interests from home.
