Each half term Nursery begin a new topic and this half term they will be focusing on 'Ourselves'

The children will have the opportunity to explore feelings, families, school life, friendships and much more through a variety of independent and

adult-initiated activities. 

Please refer to the Nursery curriculum newsletter for further information about this half term's topic and ideas for how to help your child at home.


The children have all met 'Jigsaw Jenie' in Nursery. She has been eating a healthy breakfast each day ready for Nursery!

Jigsaw Jenie supports our personal, social and emotional learning and information about this programme can be found on the school website.



Remember.....It's good to keep talking - 

Set aside that 5 minutes a day to share a rhyme or a story book or just

simply have a chat... because it's important to talk and life has changed

over the last 18 months for everyone.

Put technology to one side for a while and encourage a 2-way conversation

with your child about anything they are interested in or

might want to talk about. Young children need to constantly hear conversations and engage in them to be able to learn how to speak to others confidently

and extend their vocabulary.

Dental Hygiene

In the EYFS, we teach about dental hygiene. The children learn the value of good brushing and how to use toothpaste to fight tooth decay. The Colgate Tooth Defenders help us to learn how to keep ourselves healthy and even give us our own toothbrush and toothpaste to take home!

The Tooth Defenders would like us to complete our brushing chart to make sure that we keep our teeth and gums healthy.

If you need any support for your child or any tips on keeping teeth clean, please see our documents below to help you. Also start taking your child to the dentist….it is never too early to start!
