Mrs Virnuls and Mrs Adams
Welcome to the Nursery web page. You will find Mrs Virnuls teaching, with the wonderful Mrs Adams helping our fantastic children. If you have any concerns or queries, do not hesitate to get in touch with the school.
On this page you can find:
- Information about our curriculum and learning, including an overview of our current topic.
- Links for play activity ideas to develop fine motor skills, number and phonics skills
- Number and letter formation rhymes.
This term we will be busy learning All About Me! Our topic will enable us to think about ourselves and the significant people in our lives and the legacy they leave for us. We will be reading many stories celebrating difference together and talking about our families. In art-based/creative activities, we will draw and paint simple representations of ourselves and our families. To develop our musical skills, we will be learning new rhymes and songs.
Home Reading- All children in Nursery have a clear communication folder which holds their reading diary and weekly books. Children receive 2 books weekly: one is chosen by the children to encourage and foster the love of books and the second is designed to support children to develop early reading behaviours. (See 'How to support my child in early reading' below). Please return the communication folder to school each Tuesday with the reading diary and 2 books, these will be returned to you on Wednesday. We strongly encourage children to read at least 3 times weekly at home.
PE - Nursery have PE on Wednesdays (morning and day children) and Thursdays (afternoon and day children). Please send your child to school in their kit on these days - PE lessons may be outdoors (weather permitting) so you may wish to consider your child having a tracksuit for the day. Please make sure all earrings are removed or covered with tape before school on these days.
