Nursery: 3-4 Year Olds

Welcome to Term 3!

We hope that you have had a lovely Christmas holiday and we wish a happy new year to you all.  This term we will be reading books with a food theme, starting with The Little Red Hen and developing our cooking and baking skills whilst experimenting with food.  

We will be learning some letters and sounds in small groups so watch out for your child talking about their new learning at home!  

For those children who are starting school in September please remember that the deadline for school places is January 15th. 

Morning routine

Help your child find their name card and support them choosing their lunch on their Key worker board.

Help your child settle to an activity in their Key Worker area.  This morning activities time is called Talk Time.  It is a time for you to share any news or information with the Key Worker and chat to your child as they settle into their new day.  These activities will have been carefully planned to suit your child’s interests.

If you have any issues that you would like to discuss privately, please mention this to the Key Worker who will offer you a suitable time either at the end of the day or after Talk Time has finished.  

If you would like to find out more about schemas, please visit the following websites:

The adults in our class this term are:

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday: Stephanie, Barb and Sam.

Just a quick reminder to our families.

  • Please bring your children on time.
  • After helping the children to self register, please bring them to their Key Worker corners where you can join them to share in the learning activities.
  • The more regularly your child attends, the more we can help support their development.
  • Remember to log in to your child’s Interactive Learning Diary.  These are made with lots of love and attention.  Your child would be so proud to share their learning experiences with you at home. We welcome you to put on your own photographs and learning experiences too.  Thank you for all of you who do this regularly already.

Displays and Children’s Work 2018-19
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
