I am Miss Greene and I am delighted to be teaching Nursery this year.

In our class we are supported by Miss Wray and Miss Connolly.

We work as a team and we would like to welcome you (Parents/Carers) to join us,

to work in partnership, to ensure your child reaches their full potential.


This half term our topic is GREEN FINGERS!

Children are natural gardeners and love to play and learn outdoors,

where they can interact with nature.

They are curious, love flowers and enjoy playing in the dirt.

The garden can be used as a canvas for some relaxation and free play, 

giving them an opportunity to utilize all their senses,

as they experience the unpredictability of nature.


This term we will also be continuing our Read Write Inc phonics sessions.

Please support your child using the phonics mat sent home over the half term

(Please see Tapestry).


We will continue to learn both indoors and outdoors, looking at Summer

and the changes in the seasons.


Please ensure your child is appropriately protected

from the harmful UV rays of the sun,

 by applying sun-cream in the morning

and wearing appropriate clothing (i.e. a hat).


In nursery we look after our classroom, always remembering to...

'Choose It, Use It and Put It Away'

and we look after our friends by using kind hands and kind words.

In order to support your child at home, with their learning and development, please encourage:

  • Speaking and Listening– Two way communication is so important in the early years. Ask questions about your child's morning in Nursery (use Tapestry to prompt discussions). Give your child plenty of time to think and answer.
  • Turn taking and sharing– Play games which require taking turns and sharing.
  • Reading– Look at books together and discuss the pictures. Let your child tell you the story, through the pictures. Read books regularly (bed-time story) and repeat stories. Repetition is key to learning at this early stage.
  • Counting and number recognition– Count objects and actions (e.g. going up/down the stairs). Look at numbers in the environment (e.g when shopping, when walking home – on front doors, car number-plates, etc).
  • Sing nursery rhymes– (Use YouTube if you are not sure of the words)


If you would like to speak to me I am available before or after

school most mornings. Please contact the office to make an appointment.
