     Welcome to Highfield Nursery 

             Welcome back after the Christmas break.  For details of this half term’s objectives for learning please look at the notice board under the veranda.  


 Our story and nursery rhyme focus for our Sprint term 1 are as follows.  The children will have lots of opportunities in Nursery to become familiar with these and it would be wonderful if you share them at home too!

Last term, we had so much fun! We learnt our shapes and colours and did so well with our counting. We also took part in two STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) challenges and we look forward to carrying out more challenges this term.

Our themes this half term are ‘Winter’ and ‘Transport/People Who Help Us.’

We shall be finding out about Winter: associated weather, clothing, polar lands and animals. When learning about ‘Transport’ we will learn about different vehicles and ways of travelling as well as having a focus on ‘Space.’       

We will also be learning about the important jobs people do in the community to keep us happy and safe and looking at the Emergency Services.


‘Welly Tuesday’ was so much fun last term, the children thoroughly enjoyed playing in the mud kitchen, making fairy wands, a soap bubble tower and the highlight was toasting marshmallows and crumpets on the campfire! We will continue with ‘Welly Tuesday’ as usual this half-term - please send children in appropriate clothing (i.e. hat, gloves and possibly with spare socks).  If the weather is particularly bad, teachers may decide to do a shorter outdoor session or not at all. The children do love ‘Welly Tuesday’ and develop so much through exploring and learning outdoors so we thank you for your continued support.

 We are continuing promoting a love of the outdoors through our outdoor learning opportunities, including looking for seasonal changes and experiencing play in different weather conditions. We encourage the children to put on their own outdoor clothing and to make an attempt at fastening zips and buttons. Please reinforce this at home to help your child towards greater independence.


Some reminders
