Spring Term

Our class assembly is on Friday the 25th of March - all are welcome to come along and watch!

This term we will be learning through the theme of stories.  We will be looking at different genres -  happy stories, sad stories, funny stories, scary stories and traditonal tales.  We are inviting parents to come and read a story to the class.  There is a sign up sheet on the Nursery door, sign up for a time/day slot - the children always love it when their parents read their favourite story to the class.  Due to Covid 19 we are asking parents to take a lateral flow test on the day they read to the class.  Tests can be collected from the main office. 


There will be a library each Wednesday in the Nursery classroom.  Come along and borrow a book.  Books should be returned the following Wednesday so that we can keep the library well stocked and everybody has a wide range of books to choose from.  If you would like to run the library please come and chat to Miss Barbara. 


Although the Nursery children do not recieve formal homework they will have some activities set over Seesaw that support the learning that has happened in the classroom. This term we will be supoprting phonics development through our 'Sound of the Week.'   Each week we will send a notification on Seesaw to let you know which sound (phoneme) the children will be focusing on.  Please support your child to find something that starts with that sound and bring it into school.  Please remeber it is the sound not the initial letter that matters, for eaxample - if the sound is f then you could bring a phone into school.  If you do not have access to the internet then please let a member of the Early Years team know and we will find a different way getting the information to you.

Toy Library

We are working with Jane at The Toy Project to establish a toy library in the Early Years.  We are looking for parents to help us to run the library.  Please talk to Miss Barbara if you think you can help.

Learning Slideshows

We create a slideshow of the learning that has taken place each week to share with the children and warmly welcome any parents to come and join us for these each Friday.

We recognise that parents are busy and can't always come into the classroom so we have posted the most recent slideshows below.


With the end of many of the Covid restriction in school we are now able to invite parents back into the classoom to look at the powerpoints.  Come along each Friday at 3.20 to see some of the amazing things the children have been learning about.
