Welcome to Spring Term Welcome to Spring Term Welcome to Spring Term Welcome to Spring Term Welcome

Our Nursery class is closed at present due to the Corona Virus Pandemic.

Please see the attached letter below for further information.

We have also created home learning activities for you to do with your child during this time. 

Please click on the icons below to view the information shared.

We appreciate your cooperation at this time and hope you enjoy sharing the learning with your child.


Here at St. Chad's C of E Nursery we follow a child-led approach when planning activities. By following the children's interests, learning is engaging and more relevant to the child. An over-arching theme allows for teaching of specific learning objectives. 

Our topic this term is

Winter Wonderland!

Throughout this topic we will be learning about the world around us during winter and the changes in our environment.

We be reading stories such as Lost and Found to help us to learn about arctic animals and ask questions such as "Where does snow come from?" As well as learning how to dress for the weather, match patterns on mittens and socks, create magical winter art and explore frozen marbles.

Nursery will be celebrating events like Chinese New Year and Pancake Day by making and tasting food eaten during these special times and taking part in traditional games.

The Spring topic web is available for you to look at. Please click on the document above. 


 Prime areas of learning are at the foundation of all teaching that is undertaken in our Nursery. We find that securing these skills ensures lifelong, happy learners. 

We also carefully plan maths and literacy to guarantee that your child has a flying start when they move to Reception. Maths and Literacy is taught daily through a combination of practical, teacher led and child led activities. 

Maths: this term we are concentrating on numbers from 0-5, recognising numbers in the environment and 2D shapes. You can help your child by encouraging them to count objects slowly and carefully, point out door and bus numbers when you are on the move and talk about shapes when you see them.

Literacy: We will be building up strength for writing through Disco Disco and Ribbon Write as well as encourage mark making using a variety of tools. Books by authors such as Todd Parr and Oliver Jeffers will be shared and we will also be reading popular fiction books and traditional tales. All Nursery children will bring home a book of their choice to share with their family. 

We encourage messy play come rain or shine!

Nursery Uniform

Our uniform helps children to  be as independent as can be. 

Children must have:

  • Red t-shirt
  • Black or Navy joggers or leggings
  • Navy blue jumper or cardigan
  • Black shoes (no laces)
  • Wellies (to be kept in Nursery)

Children have access to water, paint, glue and sand both indoors and outdoors. We monitor the use of these however the children are learning - mishaps will happen! So keep the party clothes for home. 

All children must have a set of spare clothes/underwear and this can be kept in the classroom.
