Welcome to Nursery
Miss Martin, Mrs McArdell and Mrs Bunn welcome you to Nursery!
Our Nursery project for this term is ‘Cynefin’
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.

This term our learning will be based around the theme “Cynefin”. We will be looking at books based on family and relationships as well as looking at stories from Wales and Autumn such as Percy the Park Keeper. We will be exploring our school grounds and looking for inspiration in nature, Autumn is a wonderful time of year to inform and inspire the children!
We are also hoping to harvest our home grown pumpkins and carrots where we can use them to make healthy meals such as vegetable soup. We will be getting our outdoor garden areas prepared and ready for the winter months too.
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. Your child will have great fun drawing pictures and making purposeful marks using these!
This term we will be developing an interest of reading through sharing different books. Our learning will be based around the books Squirrel’s busy Day and the After the Storm. We will be talking about the information on the front cover of the book also using the words author and illustrator
We will be singing number rhymes and songs, counting forwards and backwards and recognising numbers all around us. We will begin to recognise numbers 0-5 and to count objects both in the nursery and outside in our school grounds.
Within our topic of “Cynefin”, we will be developing our knowledge of numbers and patterns in nature by using autumn things such as leaves and conkers for our maths. We will be looking at different shapes and colours around us. We will begin to demonstrate an understanding of simple prepositions and investigate 2D shapes.
