Welcome to Nursery C
Welcome to Nursery C's class page, we will update this page to share all the exciting things we have been learning about in Nursery.
Take a look at what we have been up to during the Autumn term.
In Nursery, we have been learning about The Nativity and the different characters in the story. We have learnt the birth of Baby Jesus was very special for many people, especially for the wisemen who travelled to Bethlehem from afar. We have been celebrating the birth of baby Jesus in Nursery by decorating our classroom and singing songs.
We would like to also thank all the adults for attending our Christmas performance, we hope you enjoyed yourself. We definitely had fun!
Take a look at some of our fantastic costumes below!
Over the next few weeks, we will be taking part in lots of Christmas activities in the build up to the festive period. We have already been working hard in our Winter Wonderland; writing labels, decorating the Christmas tree, packaging presents and writing letters to Santa.
We have also been visited by one of Santa's special elves, her name is Trixie, she has been sent to make sure Santa's knows who is naughty and nice in Nursery C!

In Nursery, we have been talking about what makes a good friend and what we can do to look after each other. Here are some of our ideas....
“We can give our friends a hug if they feel sad”
“We need to have kind hands”
“Saying please and thank you”
“We can share our toys”
“We can smile and say hello to our friends”
We also wrote a message of friendship and attached it to some balloons. We released these balloons in the playground with all of our friends at St Thomas of Canterbury. Take a look!
This term we have been reading the story 'Handa's Surprise', we have really enjoyed talking about the different animals and unusual fruits in the text. Many of us had never eaten Handa's fruits before, so we had a go in Nursery.
Take a look!
Some of us made some very funny faces whilst trying the new fruits.
Meet our class bear!
Fluffy, our class bear, will be spending his weekends with the all the children in Nursery C. He has already spent time with a few of our friends and has been coming back to tell us about all of his exciting adventures, such as going to ballet, riding on a bus and even eating cheese and tomato pizza!
We look forward to listening to Fluffy's exciting adventures every Monday morning!
Welcome to Nursery!
During our first term, we have been very busy making new friends, learning new routines, exploring our classroom and developing our listening skills.
We have also enjoyed taking part in group time and carpet time. During group time, we have sang songs, learnt our friend’s names and explored new topics. We have really enjoyed our topic of ‘Nursery Rhymes’ and have learnt lots of new action songs. Our favourite songs include; Incy Wincy Spider, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Humpty Dumpty and the Wheels on the Bus.
We have also been exploring different resources and reading lots of high quality texts. Our favourite stories include Handa's Surprise, The Hungry Caterpillar and We're Going on a Bear Hunt. When reading these stories, we have been using lots of actions to orally rehearse the story and some of us have been predicting what is going to happen next.
Take a look at some of the exciting things we have been doing!
Everyday we have been trying new foods, such as houmous, carrot sticks, pancakes and toast with lemon curd. During snack time, we chat to our friends, ask lots of interesting questions and listen to our favourite stories.
Every Friday, we have been using our hands to make some delicious foods. We have been developing our mixing, rolling, pouring and decorating skills.
Take a look at some of our tasty treats!
Every Friday morning, we have been visiting our forest school. The forest school sessions are led Paul Brighouse and aim to enhance the children's learning across the early years curriculum. During our time at forest school, we have been collecting and sorting different coloured leaves, making stickmen, exploring the environment and even touching minibeasts, such as wiggly worms.
How you can help at home
In Nursery, we have been trying our best to become independent when going to the toilet and getting ready to go outside. Please could you continue to encourage us to put our coat and shoes on by ourselves and to go to the toilet independently.
Please could you also ensure your child has a pair of wellies in school as it is getting cold and wet outside.
