Welcome to Nursery

Teacher – Mrs Delamere

Teaching Assistant – Mrs Thompson



Welcome back to our returning Nursery children and a special welcome to all 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 talking about our families and drawing a family tree, comparing how we look now to when we were babies, painting self-portraits and exploring our senses. We will also discuss how we are all different and learn about our emotions.


In phonics we will be focusing on tuning into environmental and instrumental sounds, learning action songs, adding body percussion sounds to nursery rhymes and exploring different ways of making sounds and patterns with our bodies. We will also be developing our listening skills through fun games.


In Mathematics we will be focusing on accurately counting small groups of objects, recognising numerals 1-5, counting in order up to 10 and making patterns with 2d shapes and learning shape names.


We will spend time reinforcing class rules and 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 your child's name.


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. Your child may like to try some writing here too. Early writing attempts often look like squiggles, this is fine! We value whatever stage the children are at with their writing. Adults can write underneath to let us know what the writing says.


Library days are Monday and Friday, so remember children’s book bags to enable your child to choose a book to take home. Books need to be returned the following week.


Snack money - We ask for a voluntary contribution of £3 per half term. Thank you to those who pay this on a regular basis.


Spare clothes - Please can all parents bring in spare clothes and underwear for their child. These can be left in school in case they are needed. 


Please ensure you are on time for Nursery, it is helpful if you arrive five minutes before your child is due to come in as we start our activities right away.


Thank you 

The Nursery team
