Welcome to the Nursery Class!

This term, the Nursery will be looking at a variety of topics and themes. For the children in Miss Brocklehurst and Miss Hill’s Class, our topics include:

Week 1 - Ramadan

Week 2 & 3 - Brilliant Blokes

Week 4 & 5 – At the Circus

Week 6 & 7 – Getting Bigger

These topics will be taught through a series of circle time sessions, role-play, adult-led activities and appropriate resources which are made accessible during the children’s Independent Learning Time sessions. These sessions are aimed to promote linking the children’s learning alongside a strong sense of independence and child initiated exploration. The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring the wider school environment last year, particularly on our Bear Hunt, and the children will be encouraged to explore the outdoor area even more and get creative using new resources such as the large slide, sand kitchen and tent.

The children will be supported in class to develop in the key areas of learning from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS): Communication and Language; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development; Understanding of the World; Expressive Arts and Design; Mathematics and Literacy. If you would like to find out more about the EYFS, the helpful information sheet, ‘Parent’s Guide to the Early Years Foundation Framework’ can be accessed in our Parent Partnership Folder available in both classrooms.

We hope you are all ready for some great learning in the run up to Easter. If you would like to support your child’s learning at home there are a variety of Home Learning Packs available, which detail different learning ideas and activities for you to try with your child at home.

Your child will be issued with a book bag on admission and books are changed every Monday and Wednesday by Miss Martin. On Mondays, the children get the chance to visit the school Library and choose their own story to take home. Reading is tracked and for every 10 books your child reads they get a prize from Mr Meredith! Remember to capture amazing home learning using the Home WOW’s available in class or by emailing nandr@ecs.plymouth.sch.uk


Thank you for your continued support.
