We love reading stories together in Nursery! We will now be sending home story books for you to share with your child. Each Friday we will give your child a new story book to take home to enjoy with you for the week. Please return the story book and wallet every Friday session, in order for us to change the books over in the day. Please enjoy the book at home and only bring the book back to be changed on Fridays. We will give the wallet back the same day at the end of your child’s session. Here are ways to help encourage reading:
Reading really can take you on all kinds of adventures, and we aim to foster a love of reading from the moment your child walks into our classroom. We are excited to see what adventures we go on together!

Hello and welcome to our Nursery class page. Here you will find out all about the topics we are learning about in our classroom. It is also where all key information will be shared, so please keep checking this page to ensure you are up to date with what is going on in school. Please check the school twitter to see updates from us there too!
We are so excited to be welcoming your children into Nursery. We are going to have lots of fun and exciting times ahead and we cannot wait to share it all with you. The enquiry question we will be investigating as an overarching topic is ‘What makes me special?’. We will therefore be learning all about ourselves and each other, celebrating our similarities and differences. This week, we will be introducing ourselves and building relationships through games and circle times. We will also be singing songs and nursery rhymes such as 5 speckled frogs to help begin our mathematics learning.
We will be having lots of fun! Here are some pictures of our classroom, which is ready for your children to explore.
In the downloads section of our class page you will find a ‘Blanket of Books’ which celebrates everybody’s differences and backgrounds. These are wonderful books which the children will thoroughly enjoy. They are simply recommended books that you might like to borrow from a library.
Here is a link to the book trust website, with tips on how to encourage reading for your little one.
- Please ensure your child has a warm, waterproof coat every day. We learn outside in all weathers – even in the rain!
We ask that the children all come in wearing velcro shoes to ensure no trips and falls. We also do this to encourage independence in Nursery.
- Our start time is 8:40am, and our morning session finishes at 11:40. The children who are in for the morning session will be picked up from the office. The afternoon session finishes at 3:00pm, where the children will be picked up via the Nursery gate.
- The nursery fund donation of £19.50 is payable through parent pay. This donation covers the first full term from September-December. We will ask for donations in the spring and summer terms also. We spend the money on craft materials, play dough and baking ingredients and activity enhancements. Lots of what we use in Nursery needs replenishing quite often and we really appreciate and value the donations we receive, as it allows for the best learning opportunities for the children. We thank you in advance!
- We also encourage each child to bring a spare change of clothes, including underwear and socks in case they need to be changed during the day.
Starting nursery is a daunting time for some children, and we know that there will be a few wobbles this week. If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to ask myself or Mrs Plimmer. We also have an email address if you would prefer to email us:
Please be reassured that we will ensure that your children feel comfortable and safe within our classroom, and we know that there are so many exciting times ahead. We cannot wait to start our adventure together.
Have a lovely week,
Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer
