Welcome to Nursery


...Summer Term 2018...



We are becoming explorers by learning about the farm, the jungle and under the sea.


We are……

  • Sharing the stories ‘The Little Red Hen, ‘Walking Through the Jungle’, ‘Monkey Puzzle’, ‘Commotion in the Ocean’, ‘Sharing a Shell’, and many more.
  • Exploring shapes through puzzles and construction.
  • Continuing to developing our mark making skills.
  • Learning how to consider others’ feelings as well as resolve conflicts by ourselves.
  • Exploring numbers… counting them, recognising them, ordering them and making marks to represent them.
  • Finding out about changes over time by observing tadpoles grow into frogs.
  • Hearing sounds in words and blending them together.
  • Having a ‘beach day’ (weather dependent, date TBC).
  • Developing our physical skills with specialist teachers.
  • Learning new creative techniques such as butterfly painting, mask making and independent junk modelling.



Nursery homework


Please spend 5 to 10 minutes each day with your child looking at his/her nursery library book together. The length of time will vary according to how long your child concentrates for.


Ask your child questions such as “What can you tell me about the picture?” and give them time to reply to get them talking. You might look at all the pictures in the story in that time or you might just look at one of the pictures.


Read to your child. Encourage him/her to join in with some of the phrases he/she can remember when you tell the story again the next time. Talking about the pictures in books helps us to tell a story.


Encouraging your child to say what he/she thinks about the pictures in books is an important part of learning to read.
