Welcome to Nursery


We hope you enjoy visiting our Nursery class page which shows the exciting learning that takes place both inside and outside of our classroom.

Our topic this half term is:

Are eggs alive?


'Are eggs alive?'

This half term, we’ll head outside for a spring walk to see and explore different signs of Spring. We will collect some frogspawn to take back to school for observation. Looking at eggs more closely, we’ll learn about incubation and hatching and find out about all different kinds of animals and reptiles that grow in eggs. We will plant, care for and observe a range of seeds and will complete observational drawings and paintings of a selection of spring flowers for display in the classroom. In our literacy lessons, we’ll listen to and find out about the Easter story, follow clues for our Easter egg hunt and we’ll sing and play along to spring-themed nursery rhymes. In phonics we will be learning the picture symbols for the alphabet in our whole school RWI phonics scheme and start to segment and blend using ‘Fred talk’.  Using our maths skills we focus on addition, subtraction and the language of pattern.

For our parent showcase we will be performing a Easter bonnet parade and Easter songs, which will be filmed for everyone to see.


Home Learning:

MiniMash: Children are encouraged to explore MiniMash at home as well as in the classroom, trying out different activities linked to learning across the curriculum.

Home Learning Project: We encourage children to complete a home learning project linked to their curriculum project being studied with some help from their grown up, if needed. Home learning projects provide a fun and creative opportunity for children to practise and apply new skills, as well as express their knowledge in a topic area.
