Welcome to Nursery Ruby and Opal

The children have now settled in their new environment and they have done incredibly well separating from their grown-ups.  It is wonderful to see that they are building good relationships with the Nursery team: Mrs Chuimi, Mrs Meacock and Mrs Carberry.

Nursery Ruby (morning session) take part in music lessons with Mr Skeggs on Tuesdays and have PE on Fridays with Mr Rickman

Nursery Opal (afternoon session) has their music lesson with Mr Street on Mondays and they have PE with Mr Rickman on Thursdays.

Please remember to use your child’s yellow home link book to communicate with us.


This term, through our topics, Ourselves, Harvest and Aliens we will focus on:

Developing communication and listening skills and learn how to follow our school rules and become more familiar with our daily routines

Establishing independent good self-care practices such as washing hands after going to the toilet, looking after our belongings (shoes, coats, book bags)

Exploring mark making through various media (paintbrush and water, sensory trays)

Developing good pencil grip through our fine motor skills activities

Increasing our knowledge of numbers and shapes through songs, rhymes and games; counting activities happen daily

Building on the children’s enjoyment of reading familiar stories and learn how to handle books appropriately
