Nursery (NH)




This half term our learning theme is ‘My Community’. Together we will be exploring the themes of people who help us, such as the emergency services, and visiting the local areas linked to our school houses:


Castle                       Black Dog                       Staithe                                        Buttercross


We have already been making houses for the Three Little Pigs. Here are some photos of the construction and the testing of the houses, complete with a surprise guest… the Big Bad Wolf!


The Foundation Stage


This is a very important year for children, where they will learn many new skills from leaving their parents, making new friends, learning letters sounds, how to count and recognise numbers to being independent at dressing, using their bodies to move in different ways through being active and being creative. All of our learning takes place both indoors and outdoors and is carried out in a very fun and practical way.


Week Commencing 25th February 2019


All of this term we are continuing to practise recognising numbers and count objects accurately. With these skills we can match numeral with quantity. With our name mat we are also beginning to write our own names!


Our numbers of the week are 1 2, and 3. Our shape of the week is a square.

Our letters and sounds of the week are ‘s’ and ‘a’. Home Learning

Can you spot the numbers 1, 2 or 3 anywhere outside of school?  Can you find any objects that are squares on the way to school?  Can you find any objects that start with the letter ‘s’ and ‘a’?

Numbers, shapes and letters are everywhere!


There’s always reading too!

Thank you to everyone who has been enjoying the new school reading books with their children. Why not also read with your child the book they have picked from the school library.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go!”     Dr Seuss


Reminders Please remember that we change library books every Monday and P.E. is every Thursday afternoon, so please ensure children have their library books and P.E. trainers/pilmsoles on the correct days.

Have a great week.
