Welcome to Nursery
Miss Martin, Mrs Griffiths and Mrs Bunn welcome you to Nursery!
Happy New Year!
Wishing you all the best for 2020!
Our Nursery project for this half term is ‘Brr it’s cold!’
We look forward to another very exciting term as your child continues on 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

This term we will be developing a interest of reading through sharing different books. Our learning will be based around the books Cold paws, warm heart and Here comes Jack Frost. 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 a variety of winter rhymes and songs.
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 begin to write our first names using the handwriting scheme/letter formation used at Glasllwch.
We will be singing number rhymes and songs, counting forwards and backwards and recognising numbers all around us. We will continue to recognise numbers 1-10 as well as beginning to write numbers 1-10 and to count objects. Within our topic of “Brr it’s cold” we will be matching simple patterns, sorting objects and begin to make simple tally charts. We will continue to demonstrate an understanding of simple prepositions and investigate 2D shapes.
Home Learning Opportunities
Please support your child’s learning at home by exploring winter, ice and the cold! Discuss with/point out to the children, changes that can be seen during winter, clothes that need to be worn, water freezing and changing into ice and ice melting. If we are lucky enough to have some snow, go outside and explore! Please send us in a picture if you do!
Please encourage your child to be able to take their coat off and to be able to put their coat back on by themselves.
Work together so that your child can put his/her shoes on by themselves and to be able to take their shoes back off independently!
Work together so that your child is able to use a tissue to blow their nose and remind them to put the tissue into the bin!
Continue to remind your child to wash their hands after using the toilet.
