Churchfields Primary School


Welcome to our Nursery!

 Our class teacher is Mrs Jefferies and teaching assistants are Miss Billings and Miss Power.

We are learning

This term we are learning about Dinosaurs and Space.  We will be discovering lots of new things about dinosaurs; what the dinosaurs would have eaten and how to say their very long names!  

In phonics we are continuing to learn to recognise our own name and the initial sound.  We are beginning to look at 6 new sounds S, A, T, P, I, N and making CVC words with them.  For example; cat, sat, pin, tin.

 In maths we are looking at 2D shapes, what they look like and how we can recognise them by learning about their properties.  We will be going on a ‘shape hunt’ around the school to see where we can find shapes around us. 

 We will be looking at making healthy choices for eating and what activities we could choose to do to keep us fit. 

 Apple Class are learning about recycling and what happens to the different materials and waste when it goes to the rubbish dump.  We are going to have a go at making our own compost and build a bug hotel!


Children can choose a book from the class book corner to take home to read and they can change these daily. 

 We also have some maths and phonics resources that the children can take and have a go at home with you. 

 We would ask that if these could be returned the following week so that everyone can have the same opportunity of sharing our class resources at home.


All children on a Friday morning will need to come into nursery dressed in their Forest School clothes.  Please send in a change of clothes in case they do get muddy. 

 Please check the nursery noticeboard at the gate for all updates, newsletters and dates to remember. 

 Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at


Thank you for your continued support!
