Our routine is very flexible and we work around the needs of the children throughout the day. We do encourage the children to use the toilet regularly and nappies are always changed as and when needed, if outside of our scheduled changing times. 

 

The children are offered a morning snack and a drink of milk/water each day, which we provide free of charge. We encourage the children to try different tastes and textures during this time, as well as teaching good language and communication skills at the table.

This is one of our favourite times of the day! 

 

Every afternoon the children will be encouraged to eat a piece of fruit and to have a drink of milk/water to refuel, before they return home! 

 

We always have lots of children who are eager to help prepare snack or wash up afterwards! Super helpers!

 

During Summer 1 our Big Question is:

 

 

'Is it Up or Down?'

 

Some of our activities this term will be based around several focus texts:

 

The Grand Old Duke of York

Ring a Roses

Humpty Dumpty

Jack and Jill

Incy Wincy Spider

 

Throughout this topic we are learning lots of different Nursery Rhymes as well as finding new ways to move our bodies, can you walk UP the steps and come DOWN the slide? Can you move in time with the music? We will be making lots of noises either with our bodies (clapping, stamping) or with instruments.. we might even make our own instruments!

We will also be learning about different feelings,  learning to take turns and work together as a team to do various activities such as building towers and creating dens!

 

 

 

The Way The Truth and The Life...

 

In RE we will be talking about the celebration of Jesus always being with us. We will be exploring the gifts of joy and peace that Jesus has given us and finding ways to share these gifts with others.

We will also be celebrating Mary and exploring her love for us. 

 

 

 

Waffle our School Dog!

 

Waffle is our school dog! He is a fun-loving Cockerpoo with lots of energy and the children treat him like he's their own. He helps lots of our Nursery children to settle in during the Autumn Term and he is always around to make us smile! 

If you would like to see some of the adventures Waffle has been going on, please visit our 'Waffle' page on the children's section of the website, where you will find a special message along with some very cute pictures!

 

 

 

Story time!

       

    

 

 

We provide lots of opportunities for the children to enjoy stories throughout the day. Our favourite books are displayed for the children to access independently during their busy time and they love to look at the pictures with their friends,

talking about what they can see! 

 

Every afternoon we have a whole class story time to allow the children to unwind, before they return home.

 

 

Nursery Rhymes...

 

Nursery rhymes are a fantastic way of building your child's vocabulary and language skills.

Children love to learn actions to go with their songs so why not try making up your own as you go along! 

In Nursery we are learning to use Makaton signs, particularly when we sing.

Makaton is a sign language programme which was created to be used alongside spoken language, in order to promote communication and language development in babies and young children. 

 

In Nursery, we have a song choice board with a variety of different songs on, the children will take it in turns to choose which song they want to sing. The children have access to the song board all day for them to choose from. Some of the most popular song choices are;

 

Miss Polly had a dolly

Polly put the kettle on

The Wheels on the Bus

Baa Baa Black Sheep

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive

Twinkle, Twinkle little Star
