Welcome to Nursery!


If your child is unable to come to school, please see the learning grid below to help the children to continue to learn whilst at home.


Please find some helpful website links below in regards to learning at home. There are lots of great ideas to keep you and your family busy. Please also find the link to primary essence below.

Autumn 1


Welcome back to our existing Nursery children, and a warm welcome to our new children and families. We can't wait to meet you all!

Please find lots of useful information regarding starting Nursery on our Transition part of the website. Please also find information below for if your child is unable to attend Nursery due to illness. If there are any further questions you may have, please do not hesitate to book an appointment to speak with the class teacher.


During this half term we will be encouraging the children to talk about what they like to do and who is in their family. We will also be introducing children to new routines at Nursery. As well as this, we will be looking closely at the changes around us and how the seasons are changing.

 We will continue to plan and assess using the Early Years curriculum, however the children's interests will continue to be at the core of everything that we do.


The stories we will be using to support the children's learning this half term will be;

My first day at Nursery, Alfie, The day the crayons quit, The Gruffalo, Very Hungry Caterpillar and Dear Zoo.


In phonic sessions we will be learning how to:

recognise and talk about sounds, identify one sound from another and use our bodies to make different sounds whilst keeping to a steady beat.

In Number we will;

practise rote counting to 10 and beyond everyday through songs, begin to recognise some numerals, count a small group of objects and problem solve in different ways.

In shape, space and measure we will be exploring shape by making pictures and patterns. We will also use language related to size and length.


 We want to share  your child's learning with you, so please look regularly on Primary Essence

 allowing us to share the children's experiences . Please see the links below for further information on how to support your child's development.


As always if you have any questions or queries, please don't hesitate to speak to a member of staff. Thank you for your continued support!
