Nursery 2017-2018

Miss McGuire

Welcome to FS1 - Nursery

What a busy and exciting year we have planned!

Our class is taught by Miss McGuire and Mrs Macgregor.

At lunchtime we are supported by Mrs Clee.


Our planning is a balance between following the interests of the children and discrete direction from practitioners. 

We use the Letters and Sounds programme to develop the children's listening and auditory discrimination skills. This helps the children to discriminate between sounds and develop their ability to hear rhyme and alliteration in words. 

The children develop their number skills by singing and performing number songs and counting, sorting and matching numbers. They can create pictures, patterns and models using 2d shapes.


Summer Term
We are currently learning all about The Farm. The attached document contains a curriculum map, which highlights some of the activities we will be completing over the upcoming weeks. These are linked directly to the Seven Areas of Learning and will support the children to develop the skills they need as we approach the end of our Nursery Journey. 

Week Beginning - 9th July 2018

Another busy week filled with sports day celebrations, transition to reception and lots of messy play!

The children celebrated their sports day and what a fantastic job they did! We are so proud of each and every one of them. They completed the races with pride and were fantastic ambassdors for our school. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Well done Nursery, you are all superstars! After introducing The Little Red Hen, we witnessed two of our children creating pizza's in the malleable area. Next week, we will follow their interests and make our own with a selection of toppings. We are already very excited!

It has been science week! The children have been busy investigating bubbles. We used bubble solution and wands to create different shapes, discussing what we could see. We also used a selection of ingredients to make bubble slime, which was extremely messy but lots of fun.

We have been exploring our outdoor area. Due to the fantastic weather, the children have been spending lots of time investigating sand and water. We have also incorporated den building into our activities to provide shade for the children and enhance their imagination. On Friday, the children dressed up for super scientist day and what fabulous costumes they all had. We look forward to using the money we raised to carry out our science experiments next week, we are all very exctied!


Week Beginning - 18th June 2018

A lovely week full of new adventures! 

This Week In Nursery…
We went on our first school trip, to Windmill Animal Farm. The children had a fantastic time! We travelled on the train, had fun on the play area and met lots of different animals. We were even lucky enough to bottle feed the lambs, stroke the goats and feed the alpaca. How exciting! We will now be building on these experiences and completing a verbal recount to demonstrate our overall understanding of our topic so far. 

Please continue to check our school website for an upcoming blog post, containing a little more information about our visit.


Week Beginning - 11th June 2018

It has been lovely to see the children again and hear all about their half term adventures.

We have introduced our new topic, the farm. The children have enjoyed exploring new activities and using repetitive phrases in the book corner from our new story, farmer duck. We loved discussing the lazy farmer and thought about the how the duck would feel completing all that work! In mathematics, we went on a number hunt around the school. The children worked as a team to talk about the numbers they could see e.g. clock, phone, cooker and dishwasher.
