Parent Information Pack for starting Nursery

The following information about Nursery may be helpful. Upcoming or daily events are communicated via Class Charts (our school messaging platform), newsletters, and our school website. Our Twitter page @bhvcprimary shows how much work we have done in Nursery each week!
Spring Term
Autumn Term
To start off the term we will be supporting the new children settle into Nursery, become familiar with the rules and routines as well as learning a range of personal and social skills. The children will begin to make new friendships, explore a range of new activities and skills and develop their independence.
 
This term our topic has been inspired by the hymn “All things bright and Beautiful”. In Nursery we will investigating our beautiful environment as the season changes from Summer to Autumn.
 
Our enquiry question is ‘What happens in Autumn ?’ and we will explore this colourful season by creating our own Autumn trees using a wide range of methods. We will also use ‘Autumn treasures’ (conkers, acorns, pine cones and leaves) to create pictures, support our counting and sorting, develop our language skills.
 
We will investigate the word ‘hibernation’ and learn all about hedgehogs.  During Autumn time the festival of Harvest will be taught and celebrated in Nursery, discussing the variety of fruits and vegetables that keep us healthy.
 
We will also explore the word ‘bright’ from our topic, discovering the differences between day and night, the importance of light for many religions and festivals, as well as celebrating these festivals. (Diwali, Hanukkah and Christmas).
 
We will also be thinking of others and supporting the charity ‘Children in Need’ and talking in simple terms about Remembrance day.
 
All through the term we will be using the indoor and outdoor environment to explore our topic and themes.
Literacy
We are continuing to foster a love of reading through a range of stories and information books this term. We will be talking about what happens in the beginning, middle and ending of the stories along with retelling those using puppets and props.
Don’t forget to use our Nursery library to share some great stories with your child and help them love books.
The children will continue to recognise and write their own names using the school’s letter formation. Please encourage your child to write their name and hold their pens/pencils correctly in whichever hand they feel comfortable.
Please continue to have a variety of different mark making tools for your child to use at home (paint, chalk, crayons, thick pens, thin pens etc) to support their learning.
Maths
The children are joining in with all the number rhymes and songs, which is helping them to count forwards and backwards. It is also introducing them to simple addition and subtraction. During the term we will be using maths vocabulary of measuring (short, tall, long,), as well as recognising numbers to match with the same amounts.
Our daily days of the week song is helping children gain an understanding of time and sequencing events during the day and week.
Please support your child’s development of counting, recognising numbers and shapes while you are out and about, as well as in the home
Other Information
SNACK-TIME: Can parents please provide their child with 1 piece of fruit each day.
Don’t forget to label any drink bottles your child brings into Nursery and that the drink is water. Milk is available daily for all children.
CLOTHES: Please can parents remember to provide a complete change of clothes for their child. This needs to be in a carrier or drawn string bag on their peg.
Just a reminder to check that your child’s clothes are clearly labelled, with their names, to ensure there is no confusion over items, especially jumpers and cardigans. All the Nursery staff feel that the poem below explains our role and how we view our job.
