* Welcome to Nursery *

Welcome back!

We hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year and a well deserved rest.

A huge thank you for your generous gifts, cards and well wishes.

This term we welcome even more new children.

The children joining us this term will stay with us for 18 months. Please bear with us as we settle in! 

Our topic this half term - Who lives happily ever after?


This half term we will be exploring a number of traditional tales and fairytales. We will learn to join in and repeat simple phrases from the stories and begin to retell familiar stories using play. 


We will also continue to  observe changes in weather and the environment around us. We will take a closer look at ice and water in our exploratory play and begin to identify and discuss freezing and melting. 


We will begin to build and develop relationships with one another and work and play together developing our listening and sharing skills. 

We will sing new and familiar nursery rhymes and begin to retell simple stories. 


We will recite and begin to recognise numbers to 5 and explore the world around us through our senses.  

We will identify and name 3 and 4 sided shapes and use these within our play. 


We will also explore the 5 key concepts of prints. 



If you are one of our January starters we ask if you could please send your child in with a photograph of their family or post this to tapestry. Thank you in advance.
