Welcome to the Nursery Class page.....
Mrs Lucas is the class teacher
Mrs Rowlands and Mrs Wright are teaching assistants in the morning class
Mrs McLoughlin and Mrs James are teaching assistants in the afternoon class
Mrs Cartwright also teaches in the nursery during the week
From the 6th of February we will also have a 3rd Year Teaching Student with us from Edge Hill University. She will be with us for 11 weeks.
Miss Owers will be teaching alongside the Nursery staff and we are sure that you will all make her feel very welcome!
Our topic for this term is 'Traditional Tales'
This topic has a high focus on sharing stories, retelling familiar stories and listening!
The books also lead on to speaking and listening activities, creative work, imaginative play, number and shape activities and many more curriculum areas!
We will be starting the topic with 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears', moving on to 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' and then we will see where the children's interests take us next!!
During the final week of this half term we will be finding out about Chinese New Year and how it is celebrated........we will be sending out an invitation to come and see our 'Dragon Dance' and Chinese New Year activities!
We use the snack money to purchase baking items and equipment, snack foods, tissues and gardening resources. It is a voluntary contribution (£2.00 per month is suggested) but you can be assured that all of the snack money is used to benefit all of the children in the class.
Please can you make sure that your child has a change of clothes in their Nursery bag. It is inevitable that they will need the occasional change of clothing when they are involved with water, paint, glue, soil and mud! We use aprons and cover ups but changes are needed sometimes!!
The Nursery library is available for you to borrow books as often as you wish......please ask a member of staff if you need any help with the library system.
We are also hoping to continue to run our games library this term. Please see a member of staff if you are able to help us out with this.
