FAMILY RHYME TIME

As part of our learning journey in nursery we sing a lot of nursery rhymes.  Each week we will be learning and practicing a particular rhyme, as well as making something to support our learning of it.  Every Friday we will be running two sessions where the parents/carers and any younger siblings are invited to come in and see the children perform the rhyme as well as join in with it.  The children will then bring home the prop they have made along with a copy of the words for you sing with them. 
 
The sessions will be at 11:15am and 3pm and the main nursery doors will be opened at this time for you to come in.  We have chosen these times so you can come and attend the session and then take your child home with you.  If your child does not attend Nursery on a Friday, you are still very welcome to bring your child in for the rhymetime session along with any siblings.
 
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to one of us.

If you would like to visit and have a look around our Nursery, please phone the office and book an appointment to come in.
 
Planning
 
We have a two year cycle of planning so that there are no overlaps of curriculum for those children who spend five terms with us. We ensure a range of books and authors are used as our focus throughout the year and the books link in with The Power of Reading scheme which is used through the rest of the school.  
Please do look at our medium term plans to see what the children cover each term...
Recent Special Events
 
World Book Day 2017
 
As part of the whole school event Nursery took part in World Book Day.  Everyone dressed up as their favourite character and were excited to tell us about it.
We joined in with the whole school assembly and the children were really well behaved; listening, sitting and joining in with the catwalk in front of the rest of the school.
Back in the nursery classroom we had lots of activities set up around books and stories and the children really enjoyed the different activities.
Thank you for your support with the children's costumes.   
 
Nursery Photos

WOW moments!
 
In  nursery, every step is a special achievement. Help us to celebrate your child's WOW moments by sending in a certificate all about their special achievement. 
We celebrate the certificates during circle time and then display them on our WOW display.
Blank certificates can be found in the nursery entrance. :)
