Welcome to our Nursery page!

At Forefield School Nursery we love to learn through practical, fun and meaningful experiences. We focus on developing core skills to help us as future learners. We spend lots of time outdoors developing our physical skills, bodily control and co-ordination. We also learn how to be good listeners and confident speakers. In Nursery we play lots of games which help us to become good friends.

We currently have three sessions in the Nursery, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and one whole day session for children entitled to the 30 hour offer. During these sessions we have whole class carpet time and key worker times when we work in smaller groups. We have lots of time to explore, learn and play in the Nursery environment both indoors and outdoors. We learn to be independent learners in the Nursery and develop lots of key skills.

Mrs Evans is the Nursery teacher. She works with Mrs Mc William who is the Nursery Nursery for all sessions. Mrs Harvey is the key worker for children who attend Forefield Nursery all day, and Mrs Porter supports children’s learning in the Nursery in the afternoon sessions.

Spring 1 in Nursery

The spring term has been exciting as we have been exploring bears as our topic. We have been reading lots of different bears stories including the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. After reading this story we retold this story, made our own porridge and designed and built a new chair for baby bear. We also studied the work of the artist Van Gogh and looking particularly at the piece of art ‘The Chair’ before painting our own works of art called the chair.

In maths we have been comparing different quantities of teddy bears as well as different size teddy bears and we have brought in our own teddy bears and compared these too. During this half term we also celebrated Chinese New Year during which we read the story of Chinese New Year, made our own Chinese lanterns and dragons and tasted some yummy Chinese food using chop sticks to eat with.

What a wonderfully exciting half term we have had!
