This is the start of our journey at school and it should be a safe, caring and nurturing environment which is what Orchard Primary School Nursery provides.

We develop our little pupil’s minds to see, talk about and question the world around them and we approach this with inside and out activities. Learning in the Early Years begins with social interaction with peers and adults. Learning to play and share and to develop our individuality and independence.

We carefully plan activities every day in each of the areas of learning to encourage, stimulate and challenge our Nursery children.

As well as activities taking place in the classroom and in our outdoor area, the children also take part in Forest School, computing in the ICT Suite, PE and cooking.

To find out more about our class and what activities we have been undertaking on a daily basis then please take a look at the details below. This page will be regularly updated with new material so please keep checking back for new information.

Our first week with all of our new children!

We have now welcomed all of our new children into Nursery and it has been wonderful seeing them all settle in so well and begin to make friends with their classmates. We are learning lots about each of the children, what they like to do, their interests and what makes them happy at school. We have some wonderful painters, some very imaginative children playing with the dinosaurs, the dolls house and trains. We have some very creative children who have been making things with the play-dough and taking part in collage activities on the messy table. We also have some children who love to cook me dinner and make me a cup of tea in the home corner.

It is lovely to see them exploring both the classroom and our outdoor area with enthusiasm - climbing, using the slide, riding scooters and exploring our wooded area.

Well done Nursery!

Our topic this half term is Myself, so next week we will be doing lots of activities linked to our face, what we look like and talking about how we are different to others.

Our Little Numbers Course

We are also pleased that some of our new Nursery parents will be coming in to school to take part in some learning with their children.

We are running a Little Numbers course this half term, where parents can take part in various maths activities and find out how they can support/develop their child's numeracy skills at home.

These courses are usually a lot of fun and we look forward to hearing all about it from both the children and the parents!

Welcoming our new little superstars to Nursery!

Mrs Bhatti and I have been very excited this week to welcome our new Nursery starters. We have been to visit them all at home, found out lots about them and they have all been given their welcome bears. We have had two groups of children start Nursery this week and we have been amazed at how well they have settled in to their new classroom. They have been very busy exploring the toys, getting to know one another and taking part in all of the new routines at school. I must say that they have all been very well behaved too!

We are extremely proud of how well they have started the new school year and we look forward to welcoming more new starters next week and adding to our fantastic new

Nursery class 2017!

F.U.D.G.E Day

Mrs Gwillam & Mrs Johnson arranged another day of fathers, uncles, dads

grandfathers and every male friend or relative to come into Orchard and share

their hobbies, interests and jobs with our pupils.

We got to learn about being a bus driver, a competitor in triathlons, a paramedic and we listened to Bill, from The Rotary Club, play the Ukulele with Lily, Carrie and Lily.
