‘Marvellous Me!’


Our learning this initial Half Term is themed around ‘MARVELLOUS ME! ’. We will be getting to know each other and begin our first Term in Nursery together as a new class. It is always exciting and challenging for children to begin a new year in school and some for the very first time away from home!  We work to support the children by focusing on their individuality, strengths and enthusiasms. We will explore ‘Ourselves’ through lots of fun action rhymes, songs and Role Play.

At Alverton we aim to involve families in the fun too so we will send song words home for you all to join in! We aim to help every child settle into Nursery and become confident and happy learners.




Each day in Nursery your child will be……..


. Learning to spend happy time away from their family (for the first time for some children), meeting new children and adults too.


 . Listening to others, talking and learning to ask questions…. Who? What? Where? How? What if?


. Learning to share and take turns….. quite tricky but necessary skills for life! Using good manners and getting along with others.


.  Becoming more independent….trying to do things for themselves….coat on, washing hands, pouring a Snack Time drink (messy!), managing shoes and socks after PE and helping to tidy up.


. Exploring  and developing Gross and Fine body movements…..climbing, jumping, running, throwing, pushing, pulling, hopping………painting, drawing, writing, cutting, sticking, building, pouring…..Dough Disco!


. Making friends and collaborating … using imagination to play fantastic games together and enjoy each others company


.Solving problems as they play, working things out, thinking about what they have done…..reflecting!


.Asking for help and helping others, being kind and becoming a member of our Nursery Family!


. Following classroom rules and routines….. Good Looking, Good Sitting, Good Listening….Stop playing for ‘Carpet Time’, aprons on for messy jobs, hanging coats up, no toys on the mat at Focus Time  etc


. Playing outside – exploring the environment and noticing seasonal changes.


. Singing, counting, listening, concentrating……..the list is endless!


Your child will start their school journey in a fun and nurturing environment. As you can see they will be very busy learning so much every day. Let’s get started………
