Welcome to Nursery


Our themes this term are 'Growing and Changing' and 'Our Great Adventure'. We will explore the life cycles of the plant and insect world and think about how much we have changed. We will  have the opportunity to observe the life cycle of a butterfly as we experience, first hand, our caterpillars grow and change into beautiful butterflies. There will be much for us to learn and enjoy as we continue to take care of our Edible Playground patch.  

Art work will also be inspired by festivals and stimuli around us, such as the changing seasons. 

Music and movement play a key role in developing the children’s creativity and well-being alongside their fine motor skills. Throughout the term, children in the Early Years will be singing a variety of songs and rhymes with actions and dances. Our classroom has a ‘finger gym’ to develop fine motor skills and we  will have daily outdoor sessions on the main playground, using apparatus to develop the children’s gross motor skills.
