Growing to Succeed

Caterpillar Class Nursery

 In Nursery you will find a welcoming team of adults who are here to help your child thrive in the Early Years. We want children to feel safe and secure in Nursery as well as become confident and independent learners. In Nursery we like to have fun. We explore our classroom both inside and outside and learn through play and focus activities.

Tapestry 

We use Tapestry which you can access online to record your child's learning journey from the start of Nursery until the end of Reception. You can see photos of what your child has been doing whilst at school and add your own special moments from home. We use the Development Matters to track your child's achievements as they reach new milestones in their learning.

The Role of the Key Worker

Every child in Nursery has a key worker. The role of the key worker is to help your child settle into Nursery and to support your child's emotional well-being and learning whilst at school. 

The following members of staff are Key Workers in Caterpillar class:

Mrs Bowe (class teacher)

Mrs Nunns (class teacher)                              

Miss Dolby (key worker)

Miss Trindade (key worker)

Mrs Avila and Miss Crabbe (SEND support)

 

You will see Mrs Johnson in nursery too from time time. She is our Early Years Learning mentor and works with children who need to personal, social and emotional support to help them access their

The Hungry Caterpillar

Heather NUNNS (heather.hawkins) on: Caterpillar Class

Last week we got a special delivery of Caterpillars. We have been observing them grow and using magnifying glasses to explore their features. We have been busy counting caterpillars and making caterpillars in the Maths and Painting areas. We have been threading using the beads and sorting the Minibeasts outside.

Ava's dad came to Visit to talk about being a Firefighter

Ava's dad came in to talk to the children about being a firefighter. He showed us what he has to wear for his uniform and what he has to do in his job. He talked about keeping people safe and how he has to keep safe too by wearing lots of safety clothing. We are going to enjoy pretending to be firefighters this week.

Pirates

Heather NUNNS (heather.hawkins) on: Caterpillar Class

This term we have enjoyed being pirates. We have been reading Pirate books, pretending to be pirates in the Ship, Pirate dancing, making faces and counting our Pirate treasure. We have made Treasure Islands in the Playdoh and searched for buried treasure in the Sand Area.

Stay and Plant (Getting ready for Spring)

Heather NUNNS (heather.hawkins) on: Caterpillar Class

We are inviting parents to stay and plant on the first Wednesday back after the holidays. If you have a pair of gardening gloves that would be really useful as we will be weeding and planting some bedding plants outside in our Outdoor Classroom from 9:00 until 9:30am.

We have been making bridges in Caterpillar class. We have found ways to build our bridges higher and to make them longer.

A polite notice...can you please make sure your child does not bring their own toys into nursery. They are toys to stay at home. We have plenty of toys to play with here in Nursery. We cannot take any responsibility for lost or broken items.

Thank you
