Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome to the Julia Donaldson class (Nursery). We are looking forward to having a fun and exciting term getting to know each other and settling into Nursery life.


What are we learning about

This term we are learning all about growth and change through plants, minibeasts and traditional tales.  We will be growing our own beanstalks to rival Jack's, seeing if we can reach our own treasure at the top.  We will build our minibeast hotel and take care of all the creatures we discover in our outside area.  Please feel free to bring in any exciting discoveries from home for example any seeds, leaves or petals that you find when out and about (please don't pick them but bring in what has already fallen on the ground).  We would welcome any empty snail shells to observe with our magnifying glasses.


Our main stories this term will be:

Jack and the beanstalk (several different versions),

Jasper's beanstalk,

One bean,

Sam's sunflower,

The little red hen,

Oliver's vegetables,

Caterpillar's wish,

Tadpole's wish,

The very hungry caterpillar,

The giant turnip.



Share your learning with us

Don’t forget we need to know about all the Marvellous things your child does at home with you, so please keep adding to your “Marvellous Me!” books. The children really enjoy sharing their news with everyone here.



Please remember that we want your child to feel confident and independent at all times. In order to help us, please remember our uniform does not include tights, lace-up shoes, belts or buttoned shirts, which all restrict their ability to go to the toilet and dress themselves independently. Please ensure you keep their bags of spare clothing up to date, and NAME their sweatshirts.



Our PE days are Wednesday for the afternoon session and Friday for the morning session so please remember not to dress in tights as they are difficult for some children to take off and put back on independently.



Many thanks,
