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

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

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 term we will be focusing on the topic ‘Once Upon a Time'

We will explore learning through a balance of [well-planned] adult directed activities and 

child initiated play, covering the seven areas of learning.

The main books we will be covering are:

The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and The Three Bears,

Jack and The Beanstalk and The Gingerbread Man.


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).


Please check our website and Tapestry regularly as we will be updating it with all of 

the wonderful learning that has been taking place.

You can also browse through the photos below by clicking on the Nursery Photo Gallery

where you will see a sample of some of the exciting activities covered so far.


Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for all types of weather, 

as outdoor play is part of our daily learning routine.

(A full change of clothes should be left on your child's coat peg.)


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.
