Key Information


Welcome to Nursery


A big welcome to all our new children and families and a lovely welcome back to the children who have already started with us. We are so excited to get to know you all and begin your learning journey through the school.


Term 1 


All about me

Our first topic in Nursery will be All About Me! The children will be learning more about themselves and what makes them unique. We will be getting to know each child by letting them explore the learning environment and choose activities that excite and engage them. We would appreciate a family photograph and your All About Me forms to be sent in. This will help us to get to know more about your child and plan accordingly.



We will be reading lots of stories, poems and Nursery Rhymes this term as well as traditional tales. The Little Red Hen and the Gingerbread Man are two of our favourites and we will learn other stories in more depth as part of our Talk for Writing programme. 



We will be learning to:

  • Tune into sounds all around us
  • Explore making different sounds
  • Hear initial sounds in our names and other words



We will be learning to:

  • Sing lots of number rhymes using our fingers - for example, 5 cheeky monkeys swinging in the trees, 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, 10 in the bed, 5 little ducks go swimming one day, 1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a fish alive.
  • Count forwards to 5 using our fingers
  • Subitise to 5 using dice and objects (this is when a child can recognise an amount of spots or objects without counting
