Welcome to Nursery
Miss Martin, Miss King and Mrs Bunn welcome you to Nursery!
We are so proud of all the children for how well they have settled into nursery.
Our Nursery projects for this half term are ‘Here we are’ and ‘Autumn’
We look forward to a very exciting term as your child begins their learning journey…
During our project the children will be given the opportunity to choose what they would like to learn and how they would like to develop their project. We will share some of the exciting things we learn with you as our project develops through regular class updates (see below). Throughout our project the children will be developing as:
- ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives
- enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work
- ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world
- healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
If you would like to get involved in our project and have expertise in any aspect of our project that you would like to bring into school, please contact the school office.
We’re going to be busy this term! You can follow some of our progress on the Nursery Twitter page: @glasnursery
In addition, please see your child’s individual link to their SeeSaw page.
The following information about Nursery may be helpful.

Any unexpected changes or updates to the following information will be communicated through SeeSaw or Twitter.
This term we will be developing an interest of reading through sharing different books. Our learning will be based around the book ‘Here we are’, ‘The Family Book’ and ‘It’s ok to be different’. We will be talking about the information on the front cover of the book also using the words author and illustrator. We will also be looking at autumn and how the season is changing from Summer to Autumn. We will be going on an autumn walk and learning about conkers, acorns, leaves and hibernating.
Please provide a variety of different mark making tools for your child to use at home (paint, chalk, crayons, thick pens, thin pens etc) to support their learning.
We will be singing number rhymes and songs, counting forwards and backwards and recognising numbers all around us. We will begin to recognise numbers 1-10 as well as beginning to write numbers 1-5 and to count objects. Within our topic of “Here we are” and “Autumn”we will be matching simple patterns, sorting objects and begin to make simple tally charts. We will begin to demonstrate an understanding of simple prepositions and investigate 2D shapes
Home Learning Opportunities
Please support your child’s learning at home by completing the must do or choice activities which are sent out weekly on See Saw.
Each week your child will be set home learning tasks, which will include daily jobs to reinforce skills we are learning in nursery. They will also be assigned either a ‘Must Do’ job or will be able to choose a home learning task from the ‘Choice Activities’ section. This will be sent using the same format, every Friday, via Seesaw.
In Nursery, we will send a must do task once every two weeks, and then children can choose a choice activity every other week. The choice activities will stay the same this half term.
At the moment, the children are unable to bring things into school, so please can you upload a picture on Seesaw of the tasks they have done. Please submit home learning by the due date, so that staff are able to view and feedback on home learning.
