Things to note

Drop off - Now the children are settled we are asking parents to say their goodbyes in the foyer outside of the classroom. It is important that the children become more independent when taking off their coats and finding their names.

Birthdays - we are a healthy school so are unable to accept cakes, however you are welcome to bring in nut-free healthy birthday treats.

Clothing - all children need an extra set of clothes to be kept on their peg in case of an accident. Please make sure everything is named.

Water Bottles - please make sure these are named and only contain water! No milk or fruit juice.

Lunches - please be assured that your child has eaten all or most of their lunch unless we specifically speak to you.

Health concerns - please click here to go to the Health Matters website where you can find health information and advice for children up to the age of 4.

WOW moments

We love to recognise and celebrate the learning that happens at home. If your child does something at home that is amazing please note it down on a wow card and post it into the wow box in the classroom.  

Each week two children's wow cards from each class will be randomly selected for a small prize.

Our Topic 

  • This term our topic is called Let's go on a bug hunt

    During our last term we will be learning all about the little creature in our gardens! We will be reading lots of stories about bugs, including some favourites - "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and "The very busy spider".



Outdoor Learning

During our final term the children will be taken in small groups with their class teacher to the park or our school pond for an outdoor learning session.

Stay & Play

Every Friday from 9am - 9.30am. Please come and join in your child's learning. This is an excellent opportunity to look at your child's learning journal, speak to other parents or catch up with the nursery staff. 


Each week we will be learning to identify a new letter sound. We will be using a mixture of the Jolly Phonics programme as well as Read Write Inc which is inline with the rest of the school. Jolly Phonics uses songs to learn letter sounds whereas Read Write Inc uses mnemonics to help the children remember and learn to write.

m - as in mountain. "maise mountain mountain"
a - as in apple. "around the apple, down the leaf"
s - as in snake. "slither down the snake"
d - as in dinosaur, "around the dinosaur's bottom, up his tall neck, down to his feet"
t - as in tower, "down the tower, across the tower"
i - as in insect, "down the insect, dot for his head"
n - as in net, "down nobby, over his net"
p - as in pirate "down the plait and over his face"
g - as in girl, "around her face and give her a curl"
O - as in orange, "all around the orange"
C - as in caterpillar, "curl around the caterpillar"
k - as in kangaroo, "down the kangaroo's body, give him a tail and leg"
u - as in umbrella, "under the umbrella and draw the puddle"
b - as in boot, "down the laces and over the boot"
f - as in flower, "down the flower, down the stem, draw the leaves"
e - as in egg, "chop off the top, scoop out the egg"

Activities at home

Here are some suggestions to support our Topic learning,

  • Go on your own bug hunt! What bugs can you find in the park?
  • Now the weather is warmer why not be slightly adventurous and visit some different parks or wildlife centres with your child.  We recommend - Hanwell Mini Zoo located in Hanwell Park for an affordable fun day out.
  • Play the game "I Spy" using the letter sounds with your child. Now the children can identify initial sounds they enjoy playing this game in Nursery.
