Welcome to the Nursery Class Page!




Welcome back, we hope you have had a fabulous Christmas and a lovely holiday.  We have been very busy planning a fantastic half term for your children.  This half term, we will be learning all about Winter, Chinese New Year and Healthy Eating.


Winter – During this topic, we will be looking at changes in the environment, different types of weather and the clothing we will need and what happens to water when it freezes?  What makes ice melt?  We will be beginning to look at time, including what happens during the day on a visual timetable, why there are different times of day and how long it takes us to do activities.  We will be using sand-timers to time ourselves doing physical activities, for example hopping or jumping.  We will be continuing to improve our fine motor skills, practising writing patterns, using scissors and writing in different mediums e.g. shaving foam.


Healthy Eating – What foods are good for our bodies? How do we exercise and why?  We will be looking at the story of Handa’s surprise and the different fruits that she has.


Chinese New Year – We will be looking at this cultural celebration, what it means to Chinese people and why they celebrate.  We will also be taking a trip on our aeroplane to China and looking at the ‘Year of the Rat’.


Things you can do at home:

  • Look for signs of winter in the environment.
  • Look for numbers in the environment – door numbers, car number plates, prices in a shop, telephone numbers.
  • Counting – ask children to count regularly, cutlery on the table, stairs up to bed, cars in the car park, and lamp posts on the way to school.
  • Practise writing your child’s name.
  • Looking for different logos in the environment – can you find a road sign?  What does the Asda logo look like?
  • What is Chinese New Year?  What year are we celebrating?
  • Completing your child’s homework with comments so that we are able to assess how well the children have completed the task.


We are looking forward to an exciting half term ahead. Thank you for all your support.
