Nursery – Oak

Welcome to Nursery - Oak class!

Autumn Term 1 2019/2020

We have had a great start to the academic year! We are so proud of how all the children have settled in.  Our topic for this half term is 'What Makes Me, Me?  We have been really busy learning about ourselves, who is in our family and our 5 senses.  We have had lots of practise at recognising our names and will continue to do this next term.  To keep active in Nursery we have been doing Go Noodle every morning - our favourite song/dance is 'Milkshake' and we have even started our PE lessons on a Wednesday.  Well done to all the Nursery children - I can't wait for next half term and all the fun learning we will have!

Summer 1 2018/19
We have had an enjoyable half term finding out about different things that 'go and flow.' We have had great fun outdoors using guttering, piping, crates and building blocks to create a large scale ball run! We have also enjoyed investigating how far toy cars, water and balls can flow down different pieces of guttering. We are looking forward to further improving our outdoor area with our parents /carers when they join us for our gardening themed Stay And Play!
Spring 1 2018/19
We are having great fun this half term incorporating Paw Patrol into our topic 'Who helps me?' We have recycled junk like Rocky, to make a boat that Zuma would be proud of. We have even built walls that would put brickies and Rubble to shame using sand for cement! We have had some new children join our class and we are proud to say that they have made friends and settled into all our routines really quickly.
Autumn 1 2018/19
What a great start to the year we have had! All of our new starters have settled into Nursery and all the routines involved really well. Our topic this half term is 'Who am I?' We have enjoyed finding out about all our likes and dislikes and  who makes up 'our family'. We have discovered which hair and eye colour is most popular in our class as well as who is the tallest! More recently we have enjoyed exploring 'our senses'. We particularly enjoyed using our sense of smell and taste when baking biscuits. yummy!
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.

Within Early Years 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.

Summer Term 2017/18

What another busy term we have had! Our two topics this term have been 'What Goes And Flows?' and 'What Can We Explore?' The children greatly enjoyed exploring the use of guttering with water, balls and toy cars during our first topic. During the second half of the summer term the children have been keen jungle explorers! They have explored different animal prints and used these to produce some fabulous camouflage themed art work. 

The children who are moving into our Reception class have been enjoying their transition sessions and Reception staff report that they are settling into the environment very well!

With just a couple of weeks left we are looking forward to sports day and our Early Years fun day.

Mrs Rumney, Mrs Kay and I (Mrs Getlevog) would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents and carers of our children, for all of their support and cooperation over the year. We would also like to thank the children for all of their hard work this year and for making Nursery a fun, enjoyable and happy place to be. We wish you all well in your move to Reception. Those of you who are returning after the holidays, we look forward to welcoming you into Nursery again in September!

Spring Term 2017/2018

What a busy term we have had! The children have enjoyed two different topics this term 'Who Helps Me?' and 'What Can We Learn From Sticks And Stones?'

In our first topic the children enjoyed thinking about the different people who help us. They also enjoyed comparing these people to the different Paw Patrol characters and inventing a new member of Paw Patrol! The topic was finished with a 'hands on' session led by a nurse. It was great fun!

During our second topic we based a lot of our work on different stories - 'Stone Soup' and 'The Three Little Pigs'. The children also enjoyed collecting, drawing with, getting creative with and building with sticks! Making nests was a particular favourite! 

We ended our busy term with an Easter themed 'Stay and Play' session and a very enjoyable trip to the farm!

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 and dislikes. More recently we have been 'shape detectives' finding common 2D shapes in our indoor and outdoor environment.

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. Look out for this in your child's bag.
