Welcome to Nursery


...Autumn Term 2018...





Our topic this half-term is: Bears, Bears, Bears!


This half-term the Nursery children are continuing to develop their personal, social and emotional skills as well as positive learning behaviours. We are developing language and encountering new experiences by sharing the stories ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’, ‘Peace at Last’, ‘Going on a Bear Hunt’ and ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, along with many more. We have also met some characters from ‘Ten Town’ who are supporting children with their understanding of numbers, talk to your child about ‘0 pond’, ‘King 1’, ‘Tommy 2’, ‘Thelma 3’, ‘Freddie 4’, and ‘Fiona 5’. The children will be working hard to prepare for our Show and Share Concert over the next few weeks and are looking forward to performing for you.





Physical development is a vital part of your child’s learning – it sets them up for successful learning later in their school life, which is why we focus on it so heavily within the early years. We support children to develop good:


  • Coordination e.g. balancing, throwing and catching, building
  • Strength e.g. climbing, pushing, pulling
  • Independence skills e.g. dressing, undressing, toileting, eating


Every week your child will have the opportunity to practise these skills, through outdoor play, ‘Sticky Kids’ music and movement sessions and snack time, among other activities.


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.
