What a fantastic start to the year. We are so pleased with how quickly the children have settled into their new class. They have all adapted and  readily follow the nursery routines. Thank you for all your support in helping your child settle really quickly at the beginning of the day and being involved in your child's learning. It has been an exciting first half term thinking about ourselves our families and Autumn. The children have really enjoyed the topic about 'Mr Squirrel' and Mrs Taylor's bulbs!! Their learning has taken many different directions developing their experiences and understanding.  

We are looking forward to starting our new topic 'Going on a Bear Hunt' after the half term. Hope you have a lovely rest and don't see any bears hiding in the park!

When we return back to school please can I remind you to label all items of clothing including hats, gloves and scarves ready for the winter weather.


As you are aware we are looking at 'Traditional Tales' which the children are thoroughly enjoying. The main focus being to listen to stories with attention and recall, join in with repeated refrains and anticipate key events and phrases and encourage the children to look at books independently and handle them appropriately.

Thank you for supporting your child with finding objects beginning with the weekly letter sound. They really enjoy sharing it with others. We can see the difference it is making to their phonics.

Hopefully, as the weather improves we will all start to feel much brighter and fitter. We will be starting to think about the different signs of 'Spring', including growth, plants and animals. This will lead onto caring for living things and our environment.

Remember we are always available if you have any concerns and Thank you for your continued support.  


What a fantastic start to our summer term! It is getting warmer and the sun is shining helping our beanstalks grow. This term we are thinking about 'Garden life' in all its Awe and Wonder!

The children are very excited about the chicks hatching and developing in front of their eyes, the magic behind  life cycles such as the caterpillar changing into a butterfly and how tall our beanstalks are growing.

We will introduce our new Guided Reading project this term with a particular focus on handling and re-telling stories through pictures and words. If you have any questions about this please come and see me.

A big thank you to all who attended the 'stay and play' sessions. It was a lovely opportunity to share the children's learning experiences with you all and we thank you for your continued support.
