Welcome to the Nursery Class



My  name is Mrs Ross  the class teacher and  working alongside me  are Mrs Hopkins and Miss Corcoran.  Welcome to the second half of the Autumn term. Once again the nursery is bustling with activity as we prepare for the Nativity Concert on 13th December 2017.

 Each nursery child is allocated a key worker who will be working closely with that child. Please come in and share your child's achievements as well as  finding out how  they are progressing.


 Our Home reading is going well.Please  spend some time to share the story and  remember to fill in the reading folder with a brief comment on their response to the book.


  Our new topic for RE this half term  is Advent to Christmas.

The new IPC topic is Lets Pretend.The children will be learning about all kinds of different ways to make up stories and to pretend to be someone or something different. Next week we will have The Entry Point. We will be setting up some clues from the story of Goldilocks and the Three bears for the children to discover and then work out who has been visiting our classroom.They can then dress up and play Lets Pretend.



IPC WORK - We made masks and pretended to be animals.


Cultural Week- We learnt about: FRUITS AND VEGETABLES FROM JAMAICA

We are going to fry some plantains.

                                            We tasted some tropical fruits from Jamaica

Last term we had a live author in our school. His name?  Andrew Weale. He visited the nursery and read two of his books to the children. They listened and participated with great enthusiasm. Watch this space for the photos...


 We want to foster a love of books in our children so please read to them each night and support our reading scheme.


Our RE topic  for the first half of the Autumn term was Beginnings.The children learnt about themselves, their families and their new school within the context of the wider Parish and Church.


The IPC  topic was Family and Friends. During the course of the theme the children  learnt about the similarities and differences between each other.They  learnt a little about the family backgrounds of their classmates, but mainly they  learnt about being part of a new group of people and making new relationships.

 If you haven't yet sent in a family photo please do so. It will be returned to you at the end of the topic.
