Phase 2


In phonics, we have been looking at the phoneme `e`, `u` and `r`. Children went for a phoneme object hunt and found some objects beginning with the phonemes of the week. Children have also had a go at writing the grapheme `e`, `u` and `r` and some words with those phonemes.
Super work

Autumn 2

Our half term topic is ‘On the high street.’

We will be learning about and celebrating our local community, people who help us, road safety and festivals. 

December 2020 

Nursery were decorating the Christmas tree when a visitor arrived... can you spot Santa's elf? 

 

Can you spot what the mischievous elf has been doing while we weren't looking? 

 

  

November 2020 

In our nursery assesmbly we shared the story of Rama and Sita and looked at diffierent ways people around the world celebrate Diwali. The children acted out the story using masks then problem solved making their own masks of the evil king called Ravana who had ten heads. 

 

 

Children have enjoyed celebrating Diwali by wrapping presents for their families using different ways of joining materials together. 

 

  

Over the half term holidays nursery children went on a seasons walk around their local community with their parents. The children collected autumn treasures and used mathematical vocabulary to compare size, colour and shape.

At school the children made binoculars and spotted wild life in our nursery garden. The children learnt the names of the birds that visit our garden such as pigeons, robins, magpies and seagulls. We made bird feeders and hung them in the garden to attract more birds.

 

 

Autumn 1

Our topic this half term is Amazing Animals.

October 2020 

Early Writing- It is essential children develop their hand and finger strength, pencil grasp, hand eye coordination and visual perception in order to be a successful writer.

In order to support children’s early writing skills children have participated in a fun range of gross and fine motor skills. Gross motor opportunities including; peddling bikes, block play and large painting.

 

   

Fine motor opportunities including; manipulating small objects, play dough and threading.

    

Nursery have enjoyed mark making in a range of different media such as; sand, paint and water. It’s been exciting hearing children beginning to comment on the marks they have made.

  

September 2020 

Nursery have continued to explore the indoor and outdoor provision. 

Children have been developing their awareness of nursery routines and making new friends. We have played lots of name games to encourage children to get to know children in their group. 

We read the story Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy by Lynley Dodd. We enjoyed the rhyming words. The children enjoyed taking care of the dogs including feeding and walking them in the outdoor area.  

 

 

 


This week it has been wonderful to meet our new nursery families as they have joined us for stay and play sessions in our nursery garden. It has been excited to play, explore and find out all the things you love to do. We have been learning about nursery rules and routines and how to make the right choices. Next week we look forward to exploring the different rooms in nursery. We will be developing our imagination skills, turn taking and listening skills. 

During our induction we shared ideas about healthy eating including a healthy pack lunch.
