Welcome to Nursery!

Hello we are delighted that you have come to visit our webpage where we hope to give you an insight into the fantastic range of learning that takes place each day through pictures of your children involved in their learning.

This new spring term our first theme is going to be Space and we look forward to exploring lots of books with a space theme including books set on our planet. 

Welcome back to all our children and a warm welcome to all the new children who will be joining us this term.

A Visit To The Local Church

18/12/17

Today we went to visit Saint Nicolas Church in Old Harwich Town, the children sang Christmas carols around the tall Christmas tree and we retold the story of the Nativity at the crib. Each child placed a character from the Christmas story in the crib when we came to their part in the story. The tall bell tower also created lots of discussion as did the arch door. 

 

Class Party 

We had a fantastic class party thank you all for the donations of food the children really enjoyed it and had lots of fun. We also had a very special visitor and every child at the party received a gift. 

 

We will be posting who is our star of the (previous) week here please check to see if it is your child.

We are fortunate to have a lovely outdoor area where our children can express themselves physically and investigate our natural world.  There are opportunities for the children to explore their immediate environment by digging for mini-beasts during summer months, making mud pies or participating in water play.  The children are encouraged to discover new things and they are provided with plenty of opportunities to talk about what they have found.  As a result of this, our children begin to develop the key skills that they need in order to be competent and capable explorers and learners. These opportunities also support development in our prime areas; communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development. 

Ready Steady Wellies - Woodland Fun Fridays

We were very lucky to be able to watch a brilliant production of Robin Hood. All the children sat beautifully and joined in with the crowd participation. 

An Early Christmas Treat - Robin Hood a Pantomime Performance in the School Hall

This week 22.11.17  we have shared the stories Owl Babies and the Owl who was Afraid of the Dark, the children have had fun exploring and finding out about all the different creatures who are nocturnal. Early science skills were developed as the children made an electrical circuit to light up the dark for Plop the owl who was afraid of the dark.

Getting Ready to Read and Write 

Alongside all of our fabulous play opportunities, children access daily letters and sounds groups. These include playful activities to support and promote early phonetic development. This means that children begin to identify the similarities and differences in the sounds and words they hear. They are encouraged to listen out for different environmental sounds such as the birds 'tweeting' and planes flying in the sky. As their phonetic knowledge develops, children are exposed to a world of rhyming and alliteration. We share lots of rhyming stories and have so much fun singing rhyming songs. When children are ready, they then begin to listen out for the individual sounds that make up words and begin to learn how to represent these sounds through writing. 

Children have access to a rich and varied provision to support and promote mark making and fine motor development. 

 

We Love Maths Too!

We love to explore the mathematical concepts of shape, space and measures through lots of exciting real life experiences such as baking, water and sand play. Children are encouraged to explore the similarities and differences in the shapes and amounts that they see and find in the world around them. We have so much fun doing lots of active maths activities such as counting as we jump, hop or clap and enjoy lots of engaging small group activities to promote mathematical development as we play. We love to give children maths challenges!
