Welcome to Nursery!

Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely break and are ready for the Autumn term.

The teacher in Nursery is Mrs Flanagan. The teaching assistant is Miss Johnson.

 

Autumn 1 Learning

We have covered basic skills such as holding a pencil and learning to write our names with guidance from support staff. Our Topic is the Jungle and we have been looking at the story of Dear Zoo.

 

Autumn 2 Learning

Next half term will be the run-up to Christmas. We will be doing lots of festive activities and learning our songs for the Christmas play.

 

Spring 1 Learning

We are learning about different authors such as Julia Donaldson. We have done lots of different activities around these stories to help improve our cutting skills. We have been doing counting activities, learning number formation and number recognition of numbers from 1-10. We find our names every morning to help with name recognition.

 

Spring 2 Learning

In Spring 2 we will be learning all about how things grow. We will be experimenting by growing our own seeds into plants and we will have the experience of watching eggs hatch into chicks.
