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 Literacy and Numeracy skills. During Nursery we will be learning through the exciting themes of transport, celebrations, wild animals, once upon a time, minibeasts and holidays! At the start of each new topic we have an entry point activity which helps us to get involved in the new theme and motivated to learn. At the end of each topic we have an Exit Point 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 ‘Transport’ and ‘Celebrations’. As part of our topics we will be learning about types of transport, how they move, which services use them and why. During celebrations we will be learning about many festivals that happen at this time of year and how they are celebrated by a range of different cultures and ethnicities.
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, how they survive and other amazing facts about them. They my even come to visit us! We will also learn about ‘Once upon a time’ during the spring term where we will learn about our favourite fairy stories, what they are teaching us and how to retell them!
During the Summer term we will learn about ‘Minibeasts.’ Where we can find them, how they move, what they like to eat and how they camouflage! We may even hunt for some! We will also learn all about ‘Holidays,’ where we like to go on holidays, what we need to take with us, how to look after ourselves on holiday
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!
