Welcome to Nursery
My name is Miss Wood and I am the class teacher.
In Nursery, we are always excited to take your child on the first steps of their learning journey through school.
Our focus is to encourage the children to learn through their play and exploration and develop the skills of; curiosity, risk taking, persistence and achievement.
Here is our classroom and the children's home for the year!
The children have enjoyed settling into their new class and having the time to explore the many activities set-up in the indoor and outdoor areas.
Take a look at all the fun learning the children have been getting up to so far!!
To begin our first topic 'Everyday Superheroes' we decided to explore what there is to see where we live and to learn about the people who help us in our local community.
We started by using a map of Dunsville to find and match up the different sights within the local area, such as the doctors, school, park and shops and used a collection of props and dressing up clothes to discuss the people who help us and the role they have.
We also used google maps to see what type of houses we could spot in Dunsville before having a go at making our own.
Our topic this half term is ‘Sparkle and Shine’
In order to celebrate Bonfire night, we made our own bonfire and toasted marshamallows!
We had lots of fun watching and listening to the many fireworks and using different media to explore making the shapes and patterns of the fireworks.
After looking at Bonfire Night, we moved onto exploring the Festival of Lights – Diwali.
We held a Diwali Day and the children all came dressed up in sparkles to celebrate the festival.
We read Dipal’s story to explore the traditions of Diwali and took part in some Diwali dancing.
The highlight of the day was having a go at making our own 'Diva lamps', which the children made with clay and decorated with paint and glitter.
