Nursery – Gold

Welcome to Nursery!

Our class teacher for the 2023-2024 academic year is Miss Lizzie Lane and our teaching assistant is Ms Sonia Eastmond.

Autumn term

Hello and Happy New Year!!!!

This half term our topic is: ‘People who help us’, we will learning about firefighters, police officers, Drs and nurses, teachers and the RNLI. Our key books will be ‘Dr Ranji, Superhero like you’ and some of the ‘busy people’ series. The children will also be starting SPLAY sessions on a Monday with Miss Davies (no PE kit needed), music on a Wednesday with Mrs Emmott and Forest School on a Thursday. For our Forest school sessions, please ensure your child comes to school dressed appropriately for the weather e.g. hat, scarf, gloves and a pair of wellies are a must! I also advise to send your child into school with an old waterproof coat, one that you don’t mind getting dirty as it can get very muddy in our Forest School area.

In Nursery, the children will be able to choose a book from our class library, these will be books that need to be shared with an adult. Books will be changed every Friday, and we ask that library books are brought back into school  by the following Wednesday.

Outdoor learning is a huge part of the Early Years curriculum and the children will have plenty of opportunities to work in our outdoor area. Children will need to have a pair of wellies in school and wear a good, waterproof coat.

Additionally, children will need to bring a water bottle to school every day, please ensure these have their names on.

The children will be introduced to St. Anne’s ‘Golden Promises’. These are the 5 rules which we expect all children to follow. There is a ‘Golden Promises’ display in the classroom on which all children’s photos are on our ‘Rainbow’. All children will remain on the rainbow unless they break a Golden Promise, in which case their photo will move off the rainbow and onto the ‘thinking cloud’. Children then need to show that they are able to follow the Golden Promises to move their photo back. If a child goes above and beyond our Golden Promises, they will then move onto our ‘sunshine’.
