Welcome to Nursery

Nursery class is held in Blackbird room


Next term our topic will be Sparkle in the Dark and our story focus will be ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell. We chose it because it’s a familiar and well-loved story with lots of repeating parts that the children can join in with. It also has lots of great vocabulary to get our children really enjoying language together. Why not read it together at home and see how much of the language has stuck with the children?

We will be doing lots of owl themed activities! If you have any owl related skills or resources please get in touch.

We will be retelling the story using small world play and we will make our own story maps.

As well as our story work we will be doing lots of sorting and counting. We will be listening to lots of environmental sounds, which is a great first step into phonics. A bit later, we will be playing with musical instruments and getting really good at talking, and thinking, about sound.

To get children used to thinking about seasons and the passage of time we have planted bulbs like daffodils and crocuses and we are looking forward to those coming up in the spring. Perhaps you could plant some at home?
