Welcome to Nursery
Teacher – Miss Delamere
Teaching Assistants – Mrs. Wareing, Miss Riley, Mrs. Thompson
Welcome back to our returning Nursery children and a special welcome to all of our new children and their families. We are really excited to hear all about what you have been doing throughout the summer holidays.
Our topic for this term is 'Ourselves'. We will be learning about our families and drawing a family tree, comparing how we look now to when we were babies, exploring our senses and painting self-portraits. We will also discuss how we are all different and learn about our emotions.
In phonics our Nursery One children will be beginning 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. Each week the letter we are learning will be displayed in the Nursery cloakroom along with the number of the week.
In Mathematics we will be focusing on recognising numbers 1-5, counting up to 10 and learning 2D shape names.
We will spend time reinforcing class routines, developing friendships and learning to share and take turns.
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 day is 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
