Nursery’s Stars of the week

See star of the week wall next to our parent board.


                      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!

It is amazing to see how quickly children have settled into the nursery setting and are already become confident, independent little learners.
