This Year...

In our Nursery, we learn through play!

For the first few weeks, we will be getting to know each Nursery child and finding out what they can already do.

We will be finding out about ourselves and each other. We will also be learning about the nursery rules and routines and finding out about the different learning areas.

During the year, we plan every few weeks around a quality text:

Autumn 1 - All About Faces (by La Zoo)

Autumn 2 - Monkey & Me (by Emily Gravett), Busy Monkeys (by John Schindel), Day Monkey, Night Monkey (by Julia Donaldson & Lucy Richards), Dear Zoo (by Rod Campbell)

Spring 1 -  How To Lose A Lemur (by Fran Heston-Gannon), Pete the Cat (Kimberly and James Dean)

Spring 2 - Jasper's Beanstalk (by Nick Butterworth & Mick Inkpen), The Odd Egg (Emily Gravett)

Summer 1 - The Hungry Caterpillar (by Eric Carle), Time For Bed, Fred (by Yasmeen Ismail), Dogs (by Emily Gravett)

Summer 2 - The Something (by Rebecca Cobb), Walters Wonderful Web (Tim Hopgood)



Our Religion topics are:

Autumn 1: God's World. The children will start to learn about how the world was created and how we can look after His creation.

Autumn 2: God's Family. We will be learning that we are all part of God's Family, and also about the Nativity story.

Spring 1: Getting To Know Jesus.  We will be finding out about Jesus' life and the amazing miracles he performed, curing the sick!

Spring 2: Joy & Sorrow. We will be hearing all about the sadness and joy of the Easter story. We will also hear about how Jesus forgave those who did wrong.

Summer 1: New Life. We will be hearing about how Jesus rose from the dead. We will also be searching for signs of new life in our outdoor area, and then learning about the Ascension.

Summer 2: The Church. We will be finding out that we God's Family is the Church. We will be learning about the church and all of the features we might spot inside.


PE days

The children will be taking part in a weekly sports session every Tuesday morning with our Sports Teacher, Mr Fallon. 

Regular school uniform will be worn for this activity.
