Nursery (Acorns)

Hello and welcome to our class page for Acorn (Nursery) Class. We are very happy to welcome our returning children and looking forward to welcoming our new friends over the coming weeks.

Important Information

Your teachers this year will be Mrs Head and Miss McCormack and we have lots of exciting things planned for you to enjoy this term. Please take a look at our Learning Journey for more information.

The session runs from 8.40 am to 11.45 am. Parents please be prompt for drop off and collection times to support your child in settling back into their Nursery routine.

Please provide your child with a full change of clothes to be kept in school in a bag, clearly marked with their name, in case they need to be changed for any reason during the session.

As part of our Early Years provision the children will have access to both indoor and outdoor learning experiences so please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather and provide them with an outdoor/waterproof coat as well as hat/scarf/gloves as the weather begins to become colder.

The children are provided with a healthy snack each day such as cereal, toast, cheese and crackers, fruit, milk or water and we ask for a voluntary contribution of 50p a week to support school in this.

To see some of the wonderful learning that the children enjoy whilst at Nursery please follow us on Twitter and here on our class page.

What an amazing way to begin our school year – a wonderful visit to the Storybarn in Calderstones Park!

During the Autumn Term we have explored Black History through the story book ‘My Hair’, encouraging the children to notice and appreciate our similarities and differences. We’ve had lots of fun exploring how we use maths every day, counting how many cakes we need for Maths party day, counting the children on our ‘self-registration’ train and enjoying our number songs and rhymes. We also had a special Science Day when we looked for signs of autumn, explored light and dark using our light box, investigated which items would float and which would sink in our outdoor space and found great joy in chasing bubbles blown about by the wind!
