WELCOME TO NURSERY

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 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 are topics are 'All ABout Me' and 'Once Upon a Time'.

 

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 our photos by clicking on [the starred heading below]

'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 an important 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.
