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 Nembhand and Miss Morgan.
Our painting for this term is Grandma’s Love by Monica Stewart, and our topic will be ‘Around The World’ which will have us learning about different stories that incorporate a range of different cultures e.g. Funny bones, Handa’s surprise, 2 Grannies, So much!. We will be learning about where we are from around the world, discussing our body parts and facial features, creating self-portraits and what makes us special and unique.
Below are a some useful websites for you and your child to do at home as well as our current timetable and topic web.
We will upload the new class weekly timetable once it has been finalised.

If you have any questions please see any member of the Early Years team or Miss Earnshaw at the Nursery door at the end of the day, or get in touch with the school office to arrange an appointment.
We are so excited for our first term with our new Nursery Class.
In the first term of Nursery we are focus heavily on children independent skills and settling in to their new environment.
We will also be heavily focusing 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.
We will be starting PE in the second half term once children are used to the routines. Please bring their PE kit every Monday which will then be returned on Fridays.
We follow a creative curriculum and place importance on children’s interests so please keep us updated with their interests from home.
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)
