Welcome to Nursery's class page where you'll be able to keep up to date with what your child has been learning each term in Nursery! 


Your teacher is Miss Morris and LSA's are Miss Richardson and Mrs Lyden. smiley

Our topic for this half term is 'Are eggs alive?' linking in with the theme of Spring! 


Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken. Lay a little egg for me! Are eggs alive? What are buds? It’s time to find out more about the things that happen in the world around us during spring. 

This half term, we’ll head outside for a spring walk to see and explore a range of plants and animals. Look at eggs more closely, we’ll learn about incubation and hatching. We’ll plant, care for and observe a range of seeds. What do they need to grow? Before we draw and paint them, we’ll smell and gently touch spring flowers, using hand lenses to identify petals, stems and leaves.


In our literacy lessons, we’ll listen to and find out about the Easter story, and we’ll sing and play along to spring-themed nursery rhymes. Using our maths skills, we’ll count ducks. What happens to the total number when a duck goes missing?


Not forgetting Easter eggs, we’ll pour melted chocolate into moulds to make chocolate bunnies and eggs. Then, we’ll go on an Easter egg hunt!

At the end of the project, we’ll invite you to come and make spring bonnets with us.
We’ll also take photographs of the plants we have grown to upload, print and display.
