'A dedicated community working together, nurturing a safe, happy school where all children can achieve their potential'

Nursery

 

Welcome to Giant Panda Class 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, lots of children are unable to come to school due to government regulations on self isolation. 

 

To ensure children are still able to access work from home, we will be putting up work for the children to complete each day on the class pages.

 

Each day, a new activity sheet will be uploaded to this page. On this activity sheets will be a variety of different activities for you to do with your child based around phonics, maths, and other areas of the curriculum. The sheets are instructions on how you can approach activities with your child, often based around a story, or other stimulus.

 

As well as these activities, please ensure you are still reading with your child. Lots of stories will help keep your child entertained, and also help their educational development. A story a day can be a wonderful calming moment for you and your child.

 

Below is a possible timetable for your days together. This is just a guideline with some ideas to support you and your child, please do not feel you need to follow it. You can add new things in or change things round to make it work for you.

 

We do ask that you please view the 9.30am set 1 sounds phonics session on the Read Write Inc youtube channel every morning. This will support your child's continued phonic development.

 

Stay safe and enjoy your learning!

 Welcome to the Nursery page for Thorpe Lea Primary School

 

Our topic for this half term is

'Eggs'

 

This half term at Nursery we will be learning about any animal that hatches from an egg! If you have photos, or even real life animals that have hatched from an egg, please speak to a member of staff to arrange bringing it in to show the children!

 

 Please feel free to join us on Monday and Friday morning for Fun with Phonics, 8:45 - 9:00.

The topics we will be looking at this term are:

Week 1: Dinosaurs

Week 2: Birds

Week 3: Fish

Week 4: Insects

Week 5: Reptiles

Week 6: Reptiles

 

 

As a Nursery we have introduced free access to baking, available whenever the children choose. This task supports a range of skills, ranging from weight and measuring skills, to practical fine motor skills. This also helps the children build their independence, as they are now able to follow the picture recipe themselves, and independently make the mixture. We hope you enjoy your children's creations!

 

Our role play area is a home corner at the moment, representing a familiar place to the children. This role play area will encourage the children to engage in imaginary role play, and use skills they see in their real lives in their play, for example feeding babies, cooking dinner, and even hoovering! Outside we have a road with road signs, supporting imaginative play using our bikes. We also have a building site, where the children are able to work together to build and construct houses, bridges and towers, all the time wearing builders hard hats and high vis jackets! Whilst these role plays will help us to develop the children's imagination, it will also let them develop a variety of other skills including, Literacy, Mathematics, curiosity and problem solving!

 

In the Nursery our focus is the child and the child's interests. We follow these interests and use them to support our teaching. This means that one day we might be working together to construct and decorate a house, and bug hunting with maps the next day! We believe that children learn best when they are completely engaged in the moment, which is why we choose to follow their interests and ideas and build them into teaching moments. We follow our topics by reading stories around them, which often sparks child initiated play and learning, however do not be surprised if we sometimes go off topic! Because of this, we also like to 'focus' on a few children per week. This does not mean we don't focus on any other children day to day, all it means is that we will send home a communication form to parents to get your input on your child's learning, and after the week is complete you will get an A3 sheet detailing different teaching and learning moments that happened to your child during that week. This is to involve you parents more in your child's learning, and give you the opportunity to comment and ask questions as we move through the year. We also ask that on these weeks, your child brings (or emails) in some family photos for them to show the class and talk about, taking over from show and tell. 

 

On this page you will find information about our daily routine, our half termly topic, special events and news.

Please check this page regularly to keep yourself updated!

Thank You for your continued support.
