Nursery: 3-4 Year Olds

Welcome to Term 2.

We have been very proud of your children—they have settled in well to routines and are listening very carefully to the adults that they work with. This term we will explore the outdoor classroom more—please bring in a spare pair of wellies if you are worried about muddy shoes and all children should now be bringing in a coat as the weather gets cooler. Later this term we will create a Nativity and have some Christmas activities. We are here to help you so don’t hesitate to call if you have any worries or concerns. – From our Nursery Team. x

Home Learning

We will be playing weekly in the wooded area and encouraging the children to notice the changes in Autumn and winter You could support your child by taking to them about the changing leaves and the different colours that they can see or perhaps encouraging your child to notice the weather every day. A nice activity could be to make an autumn leaf picture.

Packed Lunches

We have asked that all Nursery children bring in a packed lunch until further notice.  Please ensure it is healthy, balanced and varied. Please see below some information on the range of healthy foods to provide and remember that NUTS are NOT ALLOWED, chocolate bars are not allowed, grapes need to be cut in half and there should only be one sugary snack. Please take the time to check the sugar content of yogurt drinks and snacks as it is very easy for your child to be consuming more than their daily intake of sugar without you realising. As a rule of thumb, foods that are unprocessed and fresh contain less sugar and artificial colours and flavours.​


Gemma has kindly made this Makaton video for our parents! We use Makaton in our Nursery to help with communication and understanding.  Why not watch and have a try!

Term 2

Our Nativity

The children have really enjoyed putting our Nativity show together.  We hope that you enjoy it!  

Morning Play:  We plan resources and activities following on from the children’s interests and learning.  Usually, the adults would be engaging and encouraging the children to talk to each other and develop their play.  We have tried to keep quiet so that you can take a peek at what your children are doing as soon as you leave them in the morning!

We have been developing our physical skills using activities like dough disco!  Come and watch us or even join in at home!
