This week will be learning all about


Find out what we will be learning about in Nursery this week and have a fantastic half term holiday.


This week all our Maths will be based on the the story ‘Handa’s Hen, we will be doing lots of counting and ordering numbers of 1-10 and having a go at representing numbers.


This week we will be reading lots of stories about hens and chicks, we will also be recapping on how we do good listening. We will continue to focus on rhyming and tuning into different sounds and practise writing our names on our art work.

On Wednesday Show and Tell will be for yellow group, however from now on we are having a ‘Technology Theme’ so please can your child bring in something that is to do with technology, e.g. a toy with sounds, lights, levers , pulleys etc.


We are very excited to have our newly hatched chicks to look at, this week we will be observing them very closely, and we will be making nests for chicks out of straw and hay and designing our own chicken coops in our construction area. We will also be making our own hatching chicks out of paper and paint.

Family Challenge

Each week we will be setting a family challenge and we love seeing some of the results! This week please continue to see if your child can find lots of things that begin with the same sound their name begins with, please talk to them about what sound their name begins with first and then find objects around your home/garden send us a photo e.g. Sam might find a snake, a sock, a sandwich, a star etc.

Please don’t forget to send photographs to (write ‘Nursery Family Challenge AM/PM’ in the subject box). Good luck!


Please remember they all need to bring a sun hat to school every day when the weather is hot. Please also remember to put sun cream on your child before they come to school. If your child wears wellies to school, please can they have a spare pair of shoes in their bag to put on when they arrive, thank you.
