Welcome to Nursery

Home Learning


We would like to share with you some ideas that could be used to support learning at home. 


Real PE login:


Keep talking!  Encourage your child to talk about what s/he has been doing.  Also encourage them to listen carefully to what others are saying and to ask questions.  


We want to encourage reading for pleasure so please encourage your child to look at a range of books, both fiction and non fiction.  It would be great if the children could talk about the pictures.  


Phase One Phonics is fun!  Listen to the sounds all around and use words to describe what you can hear. Make sounds using your voice, your hands, your feet.  Play games with rhyming words, identifying which words rhyme or which words are the odd ones out.  Listen to the sound at the beginning of a word - what sound can you hear? Make up silly sentences where all the words start with the same sound. 

e.g. Laura licks a lemon lolly! 


Encourage your child to write, draw and make marks.  It is important that they are able to tell you what it is they have written or drawn.  


We want to encourage the children to be curious about and interested in numbers.  Encourage them to count objects but also other things like claps, jumps and steps that they take.  Look at numbers and try and match the correct number of objects to the numeral.  Make groups of objects - are they the same or does one group have more?

Look for shapes around the house.  What shapes can you see?  


Spring is a lovely time to be explorers.  Find out about the season of Spring.  Talk about the changes that happen in Spring and think about the plants and the animals.  Talk about Easter.  Maybe do some craft activities making Spring flowers or Easter pictures.  


Have a look at the link below for more ideas and suggestions.  



Welcome to Nursery


Mrs Turner, Mrs Bibby and Mrs West are delighted to welcome you to the Nursery page.  We are pleased to say that we have welcomed 52 children into Gilmour Nursery and are thrilled with how well the children have settled.  We have been getting to know each other and the children are becoming familiar with the Nursery classroom, outdoor classroom and routines.    


We are looking forward to sharing our exciting learning adventures with you and showing you some of the things we do throughout the year.

This term in Nursery we spend our time exploring our new environment and learning our rules to keep us safe and happy in Nursery.  The children know the Nursery rules are

Kind Hands

Kind Feet

Kind Words


As well as learning about and exploring all the areas inside our classroom, we also go outside and learn in our outdoor classroom.  The children have been busy climbing, sliding and crawling as well as digging, reading and chatting.  

Spring Term

We have been very busy in Nursery!  We have been learning a lot of different and exciting things and have had a lot of fun too!  

One of our favourite things is role play.  We had fun changing our role play area into space.  We enjoyed being astronauts, dressing up and blasting off into space in our spaceship! 

We learned about planets, making some of our own in the creative area and we learned about how astronauts move in space.

In the block area we made our own rockets and we made some from junk materials as well.  


We really enjoyed World Book Day.  We had fun coming to Nursery dressed as a character from a book and we were delighted to share our books with some of the children from Year One.  


We have continued with our daily Phonics activities.  We love singing, saying rhymes, playing instruments, talking about sounds and listening to sounds.
