We would firstly like to thank all parents and children who welcomed us into their home for home visits. Its been great getting to know you!
Welcome back to the children in afternoon class who have now moved into morning Nursery. You are all doing a fantastic job of settling back in and helping your new friends!
We have been amazed with how well our new children have settled into our school and we have been working hard and having lots of fun learning all about each other and ourselves!
We have been painting self portraits from looking carefully at our faces in the mirror and we have also been using our sense of taste to find out if food tastes sweet, salty, sour or bitter. We were so proud of the children having a go with trying new foods!
Within Nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum 2008. The curriculum has seven areas of learning these are; Communication and Language, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts.
We believe that parents and/or carers play a vital role in their child’s education. We hope to work in partnership with you – we will support your efforts at home and provide opportunities for you to engage in your children’s education in school.

Nursery Parental Involvement (document opens in new window)
- This term we will be working hard to become more independent (P.S.E.D), there are lots of things you can do at home to help with this.
- Encourage your child to get dressed by themselves particularly coats and shoes, as this will help them within Nursery.
- Encourage hand washing.
- We are also beginning to play with sounds (Phonics). At home you can help by;
- Reading stories with silly voices, sing songs very fast or very slowly, sing songs loudly or quietly.
- Listen to sounds in the environment.
- Make sounds with everyday objects.
