Summer Term Two! 


Wow!! We have reached our final half term in Nursery. How time does really fly when we are having fun! 

This half term, our topic is Commotion in the Ocean. We will be looking at the seaside, sea creatures, creating our own sea creatures and learning lots of facts about the Sea. In literacy we will be reading Sharing a Shell, The Snail and the Whale, What the Ladybird heard at the seaside and Commotion in the Ocean. We will be sequencing these stories through talk and story mapping. In maths we are going to be looking at being able to describe a familiar route, positional language and placing the correct fish in the correct sea.

We hope that you enjoy your last term in Nursery and that we enjoy the lovely weather!

We had a lovely time with Captivating Creatures where we saw lots of different animals in Nursery. There was a Tarantula, Stick insects, Millipede, Cockroaches, Snakes, Guinea Pigs and a Chinchilla. The children loved finding out about the different facts about all the animals. They were all so brave!!

Autumn Term Two


I hope you have had a lovely half term and enjoyed some quality time together. Our topic this half term is called 'Whizz, Bang, Pop' where we will be learning all about different celebrations. We will start off by learning about bonfire night followed by Diwali, birthday celebrations and Christmas.

Throughout this topic we have lots of fun activities planned from making our own 'firework' to creating wonderful art pieces linked to the Hindu celebration Diwali.

When finding out about birthday celebrations we will share the story 'Kippers Birthday' as our key text and use this as the stimulus for our learning.

Welcome to Nursery Class Page

We have had so much fun in nursery during the first few weeks. We have learnt lots of new things already and are trying super hard to follow our rules and routines. Here are some pictures so far...

Welcome to Nursery!


Hello and welcome to Nursery! We are so excited to welcome you all for the start of a very exciting journey! As you are aware, the first five days are our transition days where the children will attend for mornings only.

From the 9th September, all children will begin their usual session times.


Morning Session 8:45-11:45

Afternoon Session 12:30-3:30

Full day 8:45-3:30


Settling in, getting to know one another and finding out about our routine will be our focus for the first few weeks. We will baseline the children in order to carefully plan for their next steps in learning whilst enjoying some fun activities! We will sing nursery rhymes, engage in counting songs, explore our outdoor learning environment and get creative!


 Once we are settled, our topic will be ‘Marvellous Me and my Magnificent World’. We will be learning about ourselves our family, our friends and the people around us. During this time, we will share some lovely stories such as Hugless Douglas goes to little school and Topsy and Tim start school.
