Welcome to Nursery

Teacher – Miss Delamere

Teaching Assistant – Mrs. Wareing/Mrs Thompson


Welcome back to our returning Nursery children and a special welcome to all of our new children and families. We hope that you have enjoyed the summer holidays despite the unusual times we have found ourselves in.


Our topic for this term is 'Ourselves'. We will be talking about our families and drawing a family tree, painting self-portraits, comparing how we look now to when we were babies and exploring our senses. We will also discuss how we are all different and learn about our emotions.


In phonics we will be beginning Phase One of Letters and Sounds. Our focus for this term will be tuning in to environmental and instrumental sounds, developing an awareness of sounds and rhythms and developing speaking and listening skills.


In Mathematics we will be focusing on counting in order up to 10, accurately counting small groups of objects, recognising numerals 1-5 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 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.

Morning session – 8.50-11.30

Afternoon session – 12.30 – 3.00


Thank you 

The Nursery team
