Please visit our school website, class page & our Facebook page to keep up to date with all our latest EYFS & whole school news.



This half term nursery's topic is What's in the egg?



  • Uniform - We ask all children to wear a school uniform. A white polo shirt with either grey pants or grey skirt/pinafore should be worn
  • Spare Clothes - All children should have a bag in school with spare clothes - accidents do happen!
  • Water Bottle – Children should bring a water bottle into school with their name clearly labelled on it. We do ask parents to make sure that the bottle contains only water
  • Names - Please make sure children have their names in all items of their uniform. It avoids tears when things go missing and really helps staff
  • Book Bag - If your child has a school book bag, they can bring home a book from our library to share at home
  • Wet weather Attire - All children need a pair of wellies in school and a raincoat (with their names on)


Things to do at Home

  • Phonics - This term we will continue to develop our Phase 2 phonics skills. Can your child make the correct sounds for Phase 2 Set 2 sounds i, n, m and d?
  • Reading - Read with your child as much as possible and encourage them to discuss their favourite characters and favourite book(s)
  • Writing - Encourage your child to write their name as well as phase 2 sounds s,a,t,p i and n!
  • Maths - To begin the term, nursrey class will begin by exploring shapes. Encourage your child to discuss properties of shapes. What shapes can your child identify in their environment?
