Welcome to Nursery
Teacher – Miss Delamere
Teaching Assistants – Mrs. Wareing, Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. Evans
Welcome back, we hope that you all enjoyed a lovely Easter break. We are very much looking forward to hearing the children’s Easter news at family worker time. Please remember to return your Home-School sharing books to aid the children in sharing their news.
Our topic for this term is 'Growth' and the children will be engaging in lots of activities linked to 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. Soon we will be planting some magic beans sent to us by Jack. Later on in the term we will be learning about the life cycles of butterflies and frogs and searching for mini beasts.
In phonics our Nursery One children will be continuing with Phase One of Letters and Sounds. Nursery Two children will be embedding their learning of Phase One and moving on to Phase Two of Letters and Sounds. The letter sounds we are learning this term will be ‘b', 'f', ‘l', 'j' and 'v'. Each week the letter we are learning will be displayed in the Nursery cloakroom along with the number of the week.
In Mathematics we are concentrating on numbers 1-20 - recognising them, putting them in order, counting objects and finding one more or one less of a given number. We are also looking at simple 2D and 3D shapes and their properties, exploring shapes in our environment and learning to use positional language.
Later on in the term we will be starting our transition visits to Reception to prepare them for starting school in September.
Uniform - Nursery uniform is a black or red sweater/cardigan with The Grange logo, yellow polo shirt and red or black jogging bottoms/leggings. Please can you ensure that all sweaters/cardigans have your child's name written inside them.
We ask that all children bring a pair of wellies to leave in Nursery. This is so we can go outside in all weathers. We also ask that children wear shoes with a velcro fastening. This is important as it helps the children to be independent. Again can you ensure that shoes and wellies are labelled with the child's name.
Please be aware that due to the nature of activities in Nursery summer dresses do not form part of Nursery uniform.
Home-school sharing books – Please remember to use our home-school sharing books. These are a great way of promoting and developing children's confidence when talking in our family worker groups.These books can be found as you enter the Nursery. They can be filled with weekend news, photographs, leaflets of places visited and drawings.
Library days are Monday and Friday, so remember children’s book bags so they will be able to choose a book to take home. Books need to be returned the following week.
Morning session – 8.50-11.30
Afternoon session – 12.30 – 3.00
