Welcome to Nursery – Ladybirds class

Hi I’m Mrs Williams the class teacher.

Term 4 – Welcome Back! We are very excited to have you ALL back!

This term are topic is called, MARVELLOUS MINIBEASTS! We will be learning about where minibeasts live, what they eat and how they grow. We will find lots of ways to create them – painting, junk modelling, drawing. There is also an EASTER competition for under 5s to get creative at home and make a minibeast! GIANT EASTER EGG PRIZE for the winner!

Home Learning

As we cannot be together at the moment you will find a weekly overview of home learning below with daily videos being published on Tapestry. If you require the plans in a different language please email me or message via Tapestry. Please keep in touch with photos and videos of your home learning via Tapestry or email: sppsnursery@cathedralschoolstrust.org

Every Monday a new whole school challenge will be set. Please find the link below.

Talking, understanding others and knowing what to say are really important skills. They help children make friends, learn and enjoy life to the full. See below for ways to support your child’s TALK.

We are so excited to be working in the Nursery class and look forward to learning through play using our amazing inside and outside environment.

Other adults you will meet are: Miss Cook – drama teacher, Mrs Dennison– gymnastics teachers. Mrs Dennison is also the Early Years Family support worker. Should you require any support please do not hesitate to contact her.

Wednesday – Nursery Library day in class. Please bring a book bag and we will help your child choose a book to bring home to read and share! Find somewhere quiet, talk about the pictures, ask questions to develop comprehension e.g. Why did Goldilocks go into the house? or I wonder why……..

Thursday is P.E days (gymnastics) so please remember to put your child in loose clothing (leggings for girls) and shoes/trainers they are able to take off/put on themselves e.g. Velcro shoes/trainers. We will be encouraging independence.

Tuesday and Friday are Forest school sessions so please provide sensible clothing for the environment and weather e.g. trousers, labelled wellington boots and waterproofs or sun hat/sun cream. (No open shoes allowed to protect their feet.)

The children love to get wet and muddy in their play so please leave a bag of labelled and spare clothes on their peg. If your child is using nappies then please supply nappies and wipes in a labelled bag on their peg too.


It has been discovered that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they’re four years old, they’re usually among the best readers by the time they’re eight. Go to the BBC website link below  to listen to and learn the most popular rhymes we sing at school –
