Nursery and Reception

Autumn Term 2017

Miss Rees is our teacher and Mrs Fole, Mrs Samuel and  Mrs Siberry, help us. We love to learn and explore new things both indoors and outdoors and learn lots of new things every week.

We follow the Foundation Phase Curriculum which has seven areas of learning:

  • Language Literacy and Communication
  • Mathematical Development
  • Knowledge and Understanding of the World
  • Personal and Social Development
  • Physical Development
  • Creative Development
  • Welsh Development

Our Topics

Each term we study a new ‘Cornerstone Topic’. This term our topics are

Nursery ‘Is it Shiny? 


We will be finding out about:

  • Shiny and Non Shiny Materials
  • Properties of materials
  • Reflection and Mirrors
  • Things that Glow

Reception  ‘What happens when I fall asleep?’


We will be finding out about:

  • Why are there stars in the sky at night?
  • What type of animals come out at night?
  • Bedtime routines
  • Fairytales/nursery rhymes and bedtime stories.
  • Why is sleep and rest important?
  • Space (The moon, constellations)


Important Information

Fruit Money

Please bring in £1.25 on a Monday in an envelope clearly labelled.

PE Day

Nursery PE is on a Monday. Your child will need to wear suitable clothing in order to participate.

Reception PE is on a Tuesday so your child will NEED to bring a P.E. kit to school on this day.


Please label every item of clothing.


Homework – Homework will be given out to the children on a Friday. All homework given will be linked to our learning in class. It is important for your child to complete their homework each week to support their learning in class. Homework will need to be returned to school on Wednesday.

Reading Books – Your child will be given a reading book to read with you at home. They will also have a reading record book which you need to fill in every time you read with your child so that we keep a record of their progress.  We will try to read with your child in school as often as possible. Reading books need to be brought to school back on the Wednesday to make them available for the class teachers to read with them and for a new book to be given out every Friday.
