Welcome to Nursery! 

At Palmers Cross, our Early Years’ department is managed by a team of highly qualified, and experienced Early Years professionals, who want to work with you to support your child’s early development. Your child’s key worker will be Mrs Kendall.

Our Nursery sessions run each morning from 9.00am – 11:45am and 12:15 - 3:15. Unfortunately, due to government health measures, parents will have to leave their child at the Nursery door until further notice.

As your child enters the Nursery each day, we will encourage them to write their name in their large name-writing book provided, and to find their name to peg on the washing line. Once they have done this, they can then join their key worker to begin their morning activities.

At the end of Nursery can we please ask that you wait in the outdoor area and your child will be brought out to you.

Pupils are able to wear their own clothes for school however; we would like the children to wear a yellow, early years, polo shirt. These are available to purchase from the school office. Optional navy jumpers are also available with the school’s logo on for the colder months.

Each day the children will take part in outdoor learning. Please ensure your child has wellies in school for this and appropriate weather proof clothing.

PE will take place on a Friday. Please ensure your child does not wear jewellery and that their PE kit is kept in Nursery for these days. A tracksuit and outdoor trainers are recommended for colder months.

Show and tell will take place each Friday to help build up your child’s communication and language skills. You will be informed of a theme for each week which your child will them be asked to bring into school something related to this theme to talk about during the Friday’s session.

If you do have any queries or concerns regarding your child, please feel free to contact us; we are only too happy to help.

We look forward to sharing our fun-filled nursery experience with you and your child.
Thank you for your support.

In these photos we have been learning about capacity using language full, empty, half full. We have also been counting, matching numerals to an amount, using fine motor activities in maths and literacy. The children were donated some plants from a grandparent so we planted them to improve our garden.

  

  

Children enjoyed raising money for Children In Need.

 

 Nursery also celebrated Diwali by tasting some yummy food, dancing along with traditional Indian music with scarves and created fireworks outside with paint. We had lots of fun!

We are so proud to see the wonderful work Millie-Rose in Nursery has been up to at home. Well done!

    

 

Mrs Kendall and Mrs Jones have been very busy these past weeks. They have been working on a surprise for all our Eyfs children. They have painted, repaired, jet washed and cleaned and worked so hard to make sure you all have a beautiful area to learn in.

We can't wait to see you exploring in your new environment. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Our story focus this week was the gingerbread man, as part of our learning we followed a recipe to make our gingerbread men. We also explored mark making, using big chalks to draw a gingerbread man and features. Through our topic the children have been working very hard to explore who they are and who is important to them. During topic we have been looking closely at the body and naming different body parts. 
 

As part of our all about me topic we drew around our friends and created our own labels to name the different parts of the body.


 
During phonics we have been exploring instrumental sounds.
