Nursery – Oak

Welcome to Nursery - Oak Class!

Autumn 1 2017/2018

Our new Nursery children are settling into Nursery and the routines involved really well! They are taking the time to get to know each other and the Nursery staff. We have enjoyed finding out about  each other, our families and our likes ad dislikes. More recently we have been 'shape detectives' finding common 2D shapes in our indoor and outdoor environment.



Summer 2 2016/2017

This half term our topic has been 'What's Below The Sea?' We have been reading and basing a lot of our work around the stories of 'The Rainbow Fish' and 'Commotion In The Ocean'. Making 'stained glass window' fish, playing in our under the sea themed role play area and pretending to be 'diver explorers' are some of the things we have been getting up to this half term! We have started talking about and getting ready for our move to Reception and have already enjoyed some visits to our new class!

Miss Tweddle, Mrs Kay and I (Mrs Getlevog) would like to take this opportunity to thank you all (parents/carers) for your support and cooperation over the last year. We would also like to thank you (the children) for all of your effort, hard work and energy. You have made it a very fun and enjoyable year! We hope you all have a lovely summer holiday!


Summer 1 2016/2017

This half term our topic has been 'What's Above The Sea?' We have been comparing seaside holidays of the past with the kinds of seaside holidays we enjoy today! Sandcastle based mathematical problem solving, designing and writing our own postcards and making boats out of junk modelling resources are some of the things we have been getting up to this half term! 

We are pleased to report that we took such great care of our caterpillars that we were able to release 4 beautiful butterflies into our outdoor area.

Just a reminder that now the sunny weather is approaching (fingers crossed!) it would be advisable for your child to come to Nursery with a sun hat and sun cream already applied. Thank you.


Spring 2 2016/2017

This half term our topic has been 'Growing And Changing'. We have enjoyed planting and caring for our seeds, bulbs and plants in our outdoor area. We are now looking forward to watching them grow and bloom! We have had some visitors in our class over the last couple of weeks - some caterpillars! They have been eating non stop and have grown extremely big. Any day now they will change into cocoons. We can't wait for them to make their final transformation into beautiful butterflies! We are looking forward to releasing them into our outdoor area!

Also this half term we performed our first class assembly to the rest of school and our parents. Mrs Getlevog and Miss Tweddle were very proud of us for learning our lines and speaking confidently!




Spring 1 2017

This half term we are basing our activities on our latest topic - 'What can we learn from traditional tales?' So far we have looked at the stories of 'Goldilocks And The Three Bears' and 'Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs'. Over the next few weeks we will be completing activities on 'Cinderella' and 'The Enormous Turnip.' You could join in the fun at home by reading some of these stories with your child. We are sure they would love to tell you some of the things we have been doing linked to these stories. So far our favourite has been making (and most importantly, EATING) porridge! 

Take a look at our twitter page to see the fun we have been having!

As a school we are working hard this year to improve Maths. Take a look below at some of the ways you can support your child's mathematical development in Nursery.

Ways You Can Support Your Child's Mathematical Development

In Nursery we promote involving parents/carers in their child's learning. One of the ways we do this is through our stay and play sessions. Take a look at some of the feedback we have had below.

Stay and Play Feedback

The Early Years Noticeboard Bulletin keeps parents/carers of children in Nursery and Reception up to date with everything that is going on within their child's class. Below you will find current and past issues of our bulletin.
