Welcome to Nursery!
It’s a big hello and welcome to our new children and families but also a big welcome back to some who are already familiar with Nursery. I hope you have all had a fantastic Summer break! The Nursery team and I are all very excited for the year ahead! The children have settled into Nursery well and have already been learning through a range of fun activities in our classroom. I have planned lots of amazing learning experiences and I can’t wait to get started. This page will keep you updated with everything that is happening in Nursery so make sure to keep coming back and checking it! General information is also on display on our notice board in the entrance to Nursery. Class newsletters will also be uploaded below.

Nursery had a very excitng afternoon out at Middleton Railway on the special 'Santa Train'. We hopped on board and in no time we could hear sleigh bells and see Santa walking down the platform. He came and spoke to each one of us and asked us if he thinks we should be on the nice list! Then, he gave us all a Christmas present. We are so lucky! We had an amazing time and it definitley got us feeling the Christmas spirit!
As we come to the end of our first half term in Nursery, it is lovely to reflect back on how far we have all come in just six weeks! We have become a wonderful family and it has been amazing getting to know each other, learning and having fun! One of our main topics this half term was 'All About Me' and we finished this off this week by decorating our own smiley face biscuits! Have a look at the pictures below. We also planted our own bulbs just in time as they will hopefully start growing in time to become special presents for our families at Christmas time. What a busy final week of the half term! Have a lovely break everyone and thank you for your continued support.
October is Black History Month and each class in school has been learning about a historical black figure to gain a better understanding of the importance. In Nursery, we have been learning the song 'One Love' by Bob Marley and read this lovely book too. Have a look at the video below and sing along! We have thought about how we are all different and unique in many ways but this is amazing! We all should all love and care for each other in just the same way! This links well with this year's theme of 'Proud to be...'. Why are you, proud to be you?
Our 'Colour of the week' this week has been red! We have had a lovely week doing lots of exciting activities and even dressed in red on Wednesday too. This also linked beautifully into Dyslexia Awareness Month which we celebrated as a school on Thursday; meaning we wore red for a second day for 'Go Red for Dyslexia Day'! The colour red can have many negative connotations but we are trying to change that and make it a colour to be proud of! Have a look at some pictures below.
In Nursery, every week, we are celebrating a different colour. This is called our 'Colour of the Week'. Our first colour is yellow and we marked the occasion by having a 'Yellow Day' where we all wore yellow clothing and did lots of yellow themed activities. We found yellow objects from around our classroom and then sorted the 'yellow' and 'not yellow' objects from the feely bag.
