Welcome to Nursery!
Our Nursery Teacher is Miss Kendall and our Nursery TA is Mrs Eggleton. Kirsty, Danielle, Mrs Carloyn and Mrs Dixon and also help us in Nursery. Please feel free to catch us at drop off or collection if you have any worries or concerns, we're always here to listen!
Nursery sessions run from 8:45-11:45 AM and 12:15-3:15 PM
Nursery is lots of fun, we spend time exploring both indoors and outdoors (regardless of the weather) to help us develop our learning. We spend time practicing skills that we learn in carpet time and are given opportunities to practice these skills while we play. Nursery can often be very messy, so we always wear our uniform of a red jumper, black or grey trousers, white polo top and black shoes- no laces please because we try and dress ourselves and laces are too tricky. We also wear a PE kit as we are lucky enough to have PE in the hall and also take part in a little kickers session. PE kits can be purchased from the school office, or children can wear; black or navy PE shorts, red t-shirt and black plimsolls. (Please label all of your children's clothes to prevent them going missing)
End of year feedback from parents July 2017
Thank you so much for all of the hard work you have done this year with J. He absolutely loves going to 'Big Nursery' and always tells me about the lovely things he has done each day. I have been amazed at the things you have taught him and how grown up he seems now. You have really helped him to get ready for school- they have some big shoes to fill!
We all want to say a huge thank you. L started Nursery really shy, she didn't know her letters and numbers and even struggled with her speech. You have all done an amazing job helping her become the clever little girl she is now. All of you have played an important part in helping her. You should all be very proud. Catchgate Nursery is fantastic and I praise it all the time. Thank you so much you are fabulous teachers!
Welcome to Nursery
This half term our theme is; "Where would you travel?" We will be finding out more about this theme by reading; "The Train Ride." We will be turning our role play area into a train station, learning all about different types of transport and sending items on a journey.
We are really looking forward to our Sports Day and Boys Day this half term too. Dates are displayed at the bottom of the page, and on our class newsletter.
We would love for you to bring a holiday photograph into nursery so that we can make our own around the world display.
We have had such a busy half term! We have had our own World cup parade, a construction workshop with our parents and spent lots of time large mark making with our friends! Take a look at the photos towards the bottom of the page.
This half term our theme is; "Who might be down in the woods today?" We will be finding out more about this theme by reading; 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?' and 'We're Going On A Bear Hunt'.
We are going to be finding out all about different bears, choosing our favourite bear, going on our own hunt and even having our grown ups join us for our very own teddy bear picnic, which we are going to be making our own food for!
We have started the topic with a Teddy Bear Hospital area as our role play so that we can learn all about helping others- I hope we can fix all of the teddies.
We have spent time practicing our gross motor skills outside with the ribbons. We have used ribbons, pom-pom shakers, instruments and brooms to make large anti-clockwise circles and lines.
We have been celebrating the up and coming royal wedding this week. We have used various construction pieces to create wedding outfits, flowers and walked down the aisle.
Its almost time for our teddy bears picnic......
We have been to Tesco to collect the ingredients from our shopping list, which we made earlier in the week. We went to Tesco on our school minibus- Thank you to Mr Kilby for driving the minibus.
Thank you to everyone who shared our picnic with us! It was so much fun. We loved making our own sandwiches and spending time with our teddies and especially our grown ups!
This half term our theme is "Do all animals lay eggs?" Our books are The very Hungry Caterpillar and Come on Daisy. We will be learning all about mini-beasts and different animals that come from eggs.
Today three mysterious eggs turned up in our classroom, we talked about what could be inside, the children suggested chicks, birds, dinosaurs, crocodiles and even a monkey could be inside! We will also be getting some caterpillars delivered soon, so we can watch them grow and learn all about the life cycle of a butterfly.
