Afternoon Nursery


Welcome to Afternoon nursery


Spring term 2020
This term we will be learning all about seasonal changes from Winter to Spring . We will be exploring the beauty of our natural environment and will spend time nurturing our nursery garden and developing children's natural curiosity of their environment.  We will be exploring the outdoor environment and weather including collecting natural materials. We will be helping to look after our garden during the these months including planting and digging as well as caring for the wildlife in our garden.  There are also our weekly Forest School sessions looking after our pond and natural environment. 

We will be learning about the wildlife that visits our garden during the winter months including birds and taking part in RSPB Bird watch week. We have been following the interest of children including their current interest in dinosaurs followed by a trip to see Dippy on tour in the museum. We will be learning about different festivals and celebrations from different cultures including Chinese new year, pancake day, valentines day and Easter. We will be looking at being kind to our friends and caring for others including our nursery, wildlife and our friends. This will happen during our nursery session alongside our provision. We will continue to follow the children's interest as and when things arise. 


We will be getting to know new children joining us in nursery for the new term and finding out their interests and passions which will guide our future planning. You can help your child by talking about the changes in the weather around them when they are out at the park, making collections of interesting items and bringing them into nursery for us to explore. We will be talking about our special people and places and what is special about every single child.  If you have any ideas you would like to add just talk to one of the nursery team :-)

A list of our core books are below.

Our core books this term are:

'We're going on a bear hunt'


'Goldilocks and the three bears'

'Being kind'

Our core rhymes this term are: 

Twinkle twinkle Little Star


Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are.

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

Incy Wincy spider

Incy Wincy spider climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain
So Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again!


Humpty Dumpty


Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.



1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive


One, two, three, four, five
Once I caught a fish alive,
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
Then I let it go again.

Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right.



Baa baa black sheep


Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!

One for the master,
And one for the dame,
One for the little boy
Who lives down the lane


Squirrel Squirrel


Squirrel Squirrel shake your bushy tail,

Squirrel Squirrel shake your bushy tail,

take a nut between your toes,

wrinkle up your little nose,

Squirrel Squirrel shake your bushy tail,


If you would like to share one of these stories with your child at home please sign up to our school library. We run a school library on a Friday where children can borrow a book and will earn a stamp. When your child has collected 10 stamps they will get a special prize. For more information about our school library ask to speak to Jackie.
