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. 

For details about our learning this term, please click on the Autumn Term Curriculum Overview.

Our Nursery sessions run each morning from 8:45am – 11:45am and 12:15 - 3:15. Doors open at 8:30 am for the morning session to provide some convenience for parents who are bringing older siblings into school. Parents may stay with their child until 8:45am or 12:30 if they wish to do so.

As you enter the Nursery with your child each day, we would encourage you to help your child to write their name in the large note pad 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 Tuesday. 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.

Learning in Nursery Autumn 2019

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.
