Woodhurst Nursery

Every Autumn we usually invite parents into school to share with you learning strategies and expectations to support your child with learning in Nursery. This year we have had to record these presentations for you to view at your leisure in the comfort of your own home. Please click on the link below to view the presentation.

Dear Parents and carers

Welcome to Warfield Nursery and our website.

Woodhurst Nursery staff are Miss E Dick Class Teacher, Mrs S Crispin Nursery Assistant, Mrs S Main Nursery Assistant, Miss C Thomas Nursery Apprentice and Mrs S Thompson SEN Nursery Assistant & Lunch Cover.

On our website you will find key information about our learning for this term and other useful information. As we are still working under Government guidelines due to the COVID 19 pandemic we are sorry but parents are limited within the Nursery building. We ask you to say goodbye your child at the door and staff will support your child putting things on their peg. This is an essential independent skill for your child, it is just happening much earlier than we would like. As children enter Nursery they will wash their hands and at regular points during the day. We do ask if you can limit the things children bring. They may leave their bag with “spare clothes” on their own peg for the week. Please write your child’s name on the labels on all children’s clothing especially coats and jumpers. Please provide a full change of clothes in your child's bag.

All children should have a named drinks bottle and named lunch box. We politely ask that no nuts or eggs are included in their lunch boxes due to allergies.

As we come to our last half of the Summer Term hopefully the weather will continue to be warm and sunny. Please can you send your child in with a named sunhat and a named water bottle. We will of course refill these during the day. We also ask you to apply sun cream to your child before their session starts. We will only apply Nivea Factor 50 to our full day children in line with school policy. Please let us know if you do not want us to apply sun cream or if your child has allergies to Nivea Factor 50.

Please continue to send your child with a waterproof coat and a pair of wellington boots as outside learning is an important part of our curriculum. Thank you.

Our Learning this half term is Commotion in the Ocean and The Seaside. We will start this topic with the story Rainbow Fish and how he learns he needs to share his sparkly scales to have some new friends. We will then talk to the children about how we can share and be kind to our friends at Nursery. We shall then look at the rhyming information book Commotion in The Ocean. This is a book which tells us about the different animals that live in the sea and what they need to survive. Our learning then moves to the stories about a Lighthouse and The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and The Lighthouse Keepers Rescue. The children will learn about Lighthouses and the dangers of the sea and of course how wonderful beaches can be. We shall spend time playing with sand and making sand castles and learning about floating and sinking, counting how many fish for example are in the water and then trying to catch them with our fishing nets !

If the weather stays kind to us we may even be lucky and get the paddling pool out for some toe and feet paddling !

As we are a school Nursery we start the children learning phonics, Phase 1 and then progressing to Phase 2. We also introduce Early Number, shape and counting to the children. Please do ask if you have any questions about these two important areas and how you can support at home. Please see the attached Topic Plan and Home learning documents for more ideas of how you can support your child's learning.

We have attached documents to give you more details about what your child will be learning with us at Nursery and how you can support your child at home.

We are so looking forward to this final busy term at Nursery before many of our children will leave us and start their journey into their new Reception classes. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask one of the Nursery team and we will try our best to answer them for you.
