Welcome toSt Martin & St Mary Church ofEngland Primary School


Spring Term 2019


We have welcomed 15 new children into Nursery this term and they are settling in well.

Our Nursery is an amazing place; our two large rooms are filled with lots of learning areas that the children can access themselves. Each area has a range of activities for the children to do and these are enhanced weekly according to the topic or theme that we are doing.

When the children come into Nursery, they can choose which areas to play in or access our lovely outdoors. We also have snack time where we offer milk, water, fruit, biscuit or a breadstick. The adults are always there to help, and they may have their own focused activity such as playing a game or something creative. We also have small group times where we focus on maths, phonics, music and outdoor learning. Towards the end of the session, we tidy up and then end with a story, singing or even dancing! During the week children can choose a book from our nursery ‘library’ to take home and read.

Our topic this term is ‘changes’. We start with a winter theme then look at how we are feeling. We think about colours, shapes, letters and numbers and have a fun week celebrating Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day. This includes cooking Chinese food and baking heart shaped biscuits! We then start to look at changes in the weather and then the growth of animals, plants and then ourselves. This term ends with us thinking about Mother’s day and getting ready to celebrate Easter when we come back to school in April.
