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


During this Spring term we will be following the theme of.... 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.

Winter Wonderland

We will be reading books that are set in a Winter Landscape such as, Love Matters Most, The Gruffalo's Child, The Night Tree and Lost and Found. We will spend time observing and talking about the changes in our environment and thinking about how we can look after wild animals at this time of year. We will compare our local environment to that of the penguins in Antartica as well as  looking at the long journey that the penguins make in order to find their food.

It is Chinese New Year on Tuesday 5th February and in celebration our home corner will be turned into a Chinese Restaurant with a take away delivery service running from our Mud Kitchen  -  mud pie chow mein for lunch, sounds delicious!

 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 counting out a given number of objects from a set. Children will be learning to identify if a set has more in, less or the same amount.

Literacy: this term we will be learning letter sounds in greater depth. We are also going to begin Helicopter Story time which is an immersive story telling session that captures the imaginations of children and adults alike.

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.
