Shrimps Nursery Class

Spring Term 1 2019


Hello Everyone!

Welcome to all of our new children starting in Nursery this term. And a warm welcome back to those children who are returning to our nursery following their Christmas Break!

My name is Mrs Nolan and I am the Teacher in charge of Nursery. . I am really looking forward to our Spring Term together, we have lots of exciting learning opportunities coming up. Our Topic this half term is 'People Who Help Us'.

What do we have to explore in the nursery? 

We have a home corner role play area, where the children can imitate roles of their family members, cooking breakfast, caring for babies, etc. This will aslo be transformed into a doctors/ nurses role play area this term. And we will also be building our own fire engines in the outdoor area using large construction. 

Our maths area has lots of opportunities for counting and sorting and playing and exploring shapes.

The children will continue to enjoy the book corner where the children will be encouraged to talk about what they see in the books, use puppets and props to retell familiar stories. There are also musical instruments to explore sounds and some sensory sticks to explore... these look magical!

The children will continue to enjoy playing with the garage and vehicles on the car mat to play with and the firestation with firefighters and fire engines.

Play dough with the use of a variety of resources and tools is available every day!

Our writing area has a variety of mark making tools and lots of opportunities to practise forming letters in theur name.

There are lots of other fun areas to explore, such as; small world and construction areas.


Forest School

We will begin Forest School Sessions on Tuesday mornings within the next few weeks, once all our new children are settled. We go out in all weathers except very high winds. Please ensure your child has lots of warm clothing, wellies and waterproofs for each Tuesday morning in cooler weather and sun screen and a sun hat in warmer weather. The children will need long sleeved tops and long trousers (not shorts) even in warm weather to prevent scratches from the trees. A letter will be sent home soon about this.


Chatter pictures 'All About My Christmas'

The children can bring in photographs and drawings of their christmas and will then talk about and recall their special time that they had over the christmas holidays during the Christmas Celebrations. What was their favourite present?


Water bottles and changes of clothes

Please remember your child will a need a named water bottle for each day at Nursery and a change of clothes in a bag with their name on the outside please. Thank you for your co-operation.

Please could you return any clothes you have had to borrow from Nursery promptly. Thank you.


Early Years Breakfast Club and Sandcastles

Early Years Breakfast Club (8-9am) and Sandcastles (3-6pm) will run in Nursery for Nursery and Reception age children to offer you wrap around care.

Thank you for your continued support.
