#ourclockhousefamily Welcome to our school!

Foundation Stage 1

Welcome to Nursery


Nursery is an exciting year to be a part of, it is also known as England, as part of the United Kingdom with the Reception classes! Like every Year Group at Clockhouse, we have a fun-filled, creative curriculum to excite and inspire the children of the year group. Our teachers work hard to ensure that we make the learning in Nursery exciting and memorable. Our teachers are Mrs Olivier, our Nursery teacher and leader of the Lion group, Mrs Newman, leader of the Panda group, Mrs Hickson, leader of the Hippo group, and Mrs Weimer, leader of the Elephant group.


Our exciting lessons are linked to the Clockhouse Curriculum and using our topics we also have the opportunity to develop and improve our English and Maths skills. During Nursery we will be learning through the exciting themes of Ourselves, Celebrations, Wild Animals, Fairy Tales, Growing and Transport! At the start of each new topic we have a stunning starter activity which helps us to get involved in the new theme and motivated to learn. At the end of each topic we have a fabulous finish where we celebrate our learning throughout the topic. We often invite our parents in as this gives us the opportunity to share our learning in a fun and meaningful way.


During the Autumn term, we learn about ‘Ourselves’ and ‘Celebrations’. As part of our topics we will be learning about ourselves, our likes and dislikes, our hobbies and interests, our home and school community. During celebrations we will be learning about the many festivals that happen at this time of year and how they are celebrated by different communities in different ways.


During the Spring term we will be learning about ‘Wild Animals,’ where we will learn about a vast range of animals and the places that the live. They may even come to visit us! We will also learn about ‘Fairy Tales’ during the spring term and meet many characters from our favourite books along the way.


During the Summer term we will learn about ‘Growing,’ focusing on how people and animals grow and how to keep ourselves healthy. We will also cover the topic ‘Transport,’ where we will explore different types of transport and how they move.


During the year we will have lots of other exciting events… keep checking the website and letters home for further information.


All this sensational learning means that we enjoy our time in Nursery and are ready and excited for the new challenges ahead of us in Reception!
