Welcome to our Nursery

Teacher: Mrs Widdup                       Teaching Assistant: Mrs Britton

Hello! My name is Mrs Widdup and I am the Nursery class teacher and working alongside me is Mrs Britton, our Learning Support Assistant.

Autumn 2023

Our current value in the school is 'Thankfulness'

Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; his love endures forever.

Our topic for Autumn Term is 'Hey Diddle Diddle' and we will be learning a different nursery rhyme every week. You can practise singing these with your child at home to help support their language development!

About us

Our learning environment is made up of three main spaces; the main classroom where free play takes place, our quiet room, where we share stories, songs and inputs and the outdoor area, where we enjoy lots of fresh air!

Our main aim here in Nursery is to enable and share the wonder and magic of early childhood. We want our children to feel happy, engaged and safe whilst developing a love and curiosity for learning.

Wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do and we enjoy genuine and valued relationships with our children and their families. 

Our Learning Topics

Our current topic for Autumn 1 is 'Hey Diddle Diddle' and the children will be joining in with a range of learning activities, based upon our nursery rhyme of the week. Our first nursery rhyme will be 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star' and others that follow will include 'Incy Wincy Spider', 'Pat a Cake, Pat a Cake' and 'I'm a Little Teapot'. Our topic will end in November when National Nursery Rhyme Week takes place and we can celebrate all that we have learned.

Topics to follow for the coming year are 'Countdown to Christmas' and 'Our Patch'.

Our Learning Tools

In nursery, we use Jolly Phonics to introduce the children to early sound play. They love to learn the actions and songs that accompany the letter sounds.
