Our topic this half term is ‘Did Dragons exist? ’

                           We came back to Nursery to find a mysterious egg in our classroom. We then received a letter form mommy dragon saying it was her egg and asked the children to care for it. The children will be learning about dragons and will be reading lots of books around this topic such as Zog and Puff the magic dragon. Towards the end of the topic we will be moving on to fairy tales and children will be able to role play being  Princess, Prince or Knight in our very own castle.

Nursery’s Stars of the week



                      EVERYDAY’S A LEARNING DAY!!

We are learning new sounds, numbers and some new rhymes. Our investigation area homes our classroom snail which the children look after and watch grow as they grow. We begin the day by registering in family groups which develops speaking and listening, knowledge and understanding and turn taking. Days of the week, the weather and theme based learning is done during this circle time.

The children are developing their pre-writing skills by doing ‘write dance’ every day. Literacy and Maths are covered daily in our family groups. Children also have lots of opportunities to learn through carefully planned child initiated indoor and outdoor activities which are facilitated by the teaching staff.

At home you can help your child by:

Encouraging your child to speak in full sentences.

Practicing their numbers,basic shapes, colours and letter sounds.

Encouraging your child to be independent (toileting, hand washing, coats and shoes).



Thank you for all the support that you have given your child so far. Children are coming on in leaps and bounds!

 Thank you to all that have attended ‘Hook a Book’ sessions so far, please continue to support your child in this way on Friday’s at 11:10 and 3:10.
