In Nursery, our children learn through enhanced continuous provision, both in our indoor and outdoor classroom.

Our children learn through the Characteristics of Effective Learning, these are:

  • playing and exploring
  • active learning
  • creating and thinking critically

These are important life skills and attitudes which support children in being ready to face challenges, explore and extend their learning.

We have 7 different areas of learning these are broken down into our Prime and Specific areas.

Our Prime Areas of learning are:

  • Personal, Social, Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language

Our specific areas of learning are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive Arts and Design

All of the activities planned within our EYFS key stage are linked to these areas of learning with close attention paid to the characteristics of effective learning.

Nursery Long Term Plan 2023 2024

What’s happening this term in Nursery?

Welcome back to a brand new school year. We have had an amazing start to our year and the children have settled in wonderfully. We are working hard to learn and follow our school rules and settle into our daily routine. The children are making lots of new friendships and building marvellous connections with adults in the room.


This term our core text is the story ‘Wild’ by Emily Hughes. This is a lovely story with amazing illustrations. The children will be unpicking the different settings and characters in the story and using the pictures to help them gain some understanding and build connections between themselves and the characters in the story.


In phonics we follow the Read Write Inc scheme. This term, we will be focusing on nursery rhymes and key stories. Children will be given lots of opportunities to listen to and enjoy our nursery rhymes and key stories. The children will become increasingly familiar with our stories and rhymes and will soon be able to repeat phrases from the stories and sing the rhymes independently focusing on the rhyme and rhythm of the song.

Our key nursery rhymes are:

  • Old McDonald had a farm
  • If you’re happy and you know it
  • Row, row, row your boat
  • Birdy beats
  • The wheels on the bus
  • 5 little speckled frogs

Our key stories are:

  • The Lion Inside
  • Room on the Broom
  • Giraffes Can’t Dance
  • Jack and the Beanstalk
  • The Smartest Giant in Town
  • A New House for Mouse

Cbeebies ‘Alphablocks’ is also a very educational and beneficial programme for the children to be watching which will help teach them the skills of blending and segmenting.


This term in mathematics we will be focusing on 2D shapes. We will be exploring the different shape names and properties which help us to identify the different shapes. For example, a square has four equal sides. The children will be identifying shapes around us, drawing shapes, printing shapes and building with shapes. This also links with the artist we will be studying – Piet Mondrian.


Our RE topic this term is ‘Creation and Covenant’. During this topic, the children will be introduced to the scripture of Genesis 1:31 and will be learning all about God’s Wonderful World.

Picking up and Dropping off

Please ensure that Nursery Staff are informed if someone different will be picking your child up from Nursery.


Children have the option of a hot dinner which costs £2.10 per day – this can be purchased using Parent Pay. Please ask at the school office for further Information.


Children can bring a healthy packed lunch to school. Please leave your child’s packed lunch bag on the trolley outside the entrance.


We wear a purple school jogging suit, with a yellow polo shirt and Velcro shoes/trainers.

This uniform is designed to encourage the children to dress themselves independently. It is also specifically designed as we play in the outdoor classroom each day. Your child will need a waterproof coat with a hood.

Please ensure that all of your child’s items of clothing are marked clearly with their name, but we do not advise parents to get full names printed on the back of sweatshirts.

Children can wear more formalised uniform of school slip and polo shirt or school shorts and polo shirt, but we ask that children have sensible school shoes (not sandals or trainers).

Online Learning Journal

We use Tapestry, a secure online learning journal to record your child’s special moments in the Early Years Foundation Stage. We will also share learning journeys with you and inform you of how you can help continue this learning at home. 

When your child starts Nursery we will ask you to sign a permission form and then send you an e mail which will allow you to create a password (sometimes this can be found in your junk folder)

We also encourage parents to share their home learning stories using tapestry. You can upload photographs and videos of exciting learning experiences and we will share them in class on our large screen.

If you need any support, please contact a member of the EYFS team.

Home Reading Book

Each week your child will bring home a reading book. This is purely reading for pleasure with an adult. We do not expect the children to be able to independently read these books. The children will also be given a little book review to complete, where they can draw an image of the favourite part of the story.


Costs £1 per week – please send this to school each Monday. At the beginning of each term (three times a year) we ask for an extra 50p as a contribution to pay for your child’s milk. 

Please provide water in a labelled bottle (no juice please)


Star of the day

Every day we choose a star of the day.  This is a child who has followed our rules, shared with their friends or listened to adults.  Most of all it is a child who has tried their best!!!!!
