Welcome to Nursery Class


Welcome to our new class page! On this page I will introduce you to our exciting new topics and give you some information about what we will be doing in class and how you can help your child at home. There are also some useful links for learning at home at the bottom of this page.  If you have any queries, then please do not hesitate to contact me in school or on our class Dojo.


Mrs Russell



Home Learning


It is a very different start to our summer term, and we hope you are all keeping safe and well. We will be keeping in touch with you all via our class Dojo, I will post little weekly challenges for the children and they can send me photos and drawings of things you have been doing at home.  The children can also practice writing their name, counting objects to 10 and practice recognising and writing their sounds.





This Term’s Topic is What is a Shadow?


How is a shadow made?  Do you like the dark?

How do shadows move



We will be exploring these questions and more as we learn about light and shadows. We will also be continuing with our phonic immersion programme, learning about a different sound each week.


How can you help?

Read to and with your child every day (10 minutes makes a big difference)

Practice writing their name (copying, overwriting or tracing)

Look for sounds and count things in your everyday situations, for example while out shopping or on a walk.

Help your child to become independent in dressing, undressing and toileting.

Label everything! Please put your child’s name on Clothes, bags, shoes and anything else they bring into school.
