William Bellamy Primary School We learn... We grow... Together

Nursery

Please ensure that your child has a water bottle and that they wear clean uniform everyday. 

Welcome to Nursery!! A presentation for our new families...

Welcome to the Nursery Page. This page will be updated fortnightly with information and pictures of our learning.

 

 

We very much hope that your child has a happy time here. The following are some of the ways in which you can help us:

 - Always tell a member of staff if your child is worried about anything that happened either at school or at home.

  - Make sure that we always have an up to date telephone number so that we are able to contact you if your child is ill or has an accident.

-  If your child is absent please ring the school office on each day of the absence. 

  -  Please do not let your child bring toys to school as they may become upset if the toys are mislaid or broken.

  -  Encourage your child to be independent so that they can put their own coat on and off, and go to the toilet unaided washing their hands afterwards.

- Please bring your child to nursery every day and on time!

- Please label all of your children's clothing. 

- Always tell us who will be picking up your child if it someone other than you.

Autumn 1

This term we will be learning all about ourselves. We will be focusing on separating from our parents, settling into nursery and making new friends. We will be learning how to discover in all the different areas in the nursery.  We will be looking at the key texts; I Went Walking and The Little Red Hen.

 

Literacy

In reading we will be focusing on listening to and enjoying stories. We will also be focusing on joining in with repetitive parts of the text. We will learn how to listen to a story, discuss what is happening in the story and answer simple questions about the story.  This term we will be looking at the texts 'I went Walking' 'Polar Bear, Polar Bear what do you see?' and 'The Little Red Hen'.

 

In writing we will be focusing on giving meanings to our marks. We will be exploring using different writing tools and talking about our pictures.

 

Maths

In Maths we will be focusing on counting objects and sorting objects by colours, size and shapes. We will also be exploring 2D shapes and exploring shapes in our environment.

 

Understanding the World

 

We will be looking at the changes in the weather during Autumn and how these changes affect the natural world around us. There will be binoculars and magnifying glasses available to help us explore these changes. The children will be looking in the Curiosity Cube and looking at items that we find at the park e.g. conkers, pine cones and acorns. We will also be exploring using Bee-bots and cameras.

 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

We will be focussing on separating from our parents and making new friends. We will be learning how to share and take turns with our peers.

 

Physical Development

We will be learning how to hold a pencil correctly, doing large mark making and how to use scissors safely. The children will also have an opportunity to develop their fine motor skills by scooping rice and cutting spaghetti! We will also be learning how to climb safely on the large climbing frame.

 

Expressive Arts and Design

We will be developing our imaginations in our role play areas. This term will have a home corner set up inside and a shop outside. We will be able to explore and act out experiences that are familiar to us. We will be singing every day (outside), and exploring a range of musical instruments.

 

For more information on the key areas of learning please see the Autumn 1 newsletter. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask an adult.
