Welcome to Cherry Tree class,

Cherry Tree class teacher is Miss Parkinson and the teaching assistants in our class are: Mrs Hodgkiss, Mrs Webb and Miss Gornall. Our class is made up of 3 and 4 year old children. Our children attend AM or PM places or 30 hours per week. Our aim in Nursery class is to provide a happy and engaging environment which enables our children become effective learners and responsible citizens. We follow the EYFS curriculum and plan engaging topics which develop all seven areas outlined in this. Additionally, children have access to an indoor and outdoor continuous provision which enables them to explore and get involved in numerous learning activities.

Home learning:

Why do squirrels hide their nuts?

Key questions for our topic this term:

  • Where do animals live?

  • What do animals have in their homes?

  • Why do some animals wake up at night?

  • Which animals wake up at night?

  • What is Autumn?

  • What might you see in Autumn?

Some useful websites to support with home learning:

Squiggle while you wiggle!

In Nursery we enjoy weekly 'Squiggle while you wiggle' sessions. These sessions help develop gross and fine motor skills, providing children with the skills they need to help them to write when they are ready! First we dance with our flipper flappers. Then we practise the movement of the week in a sensory resource (flour, foam. cornflour etc), then with chalk and finally on paper! Let's get squiggling!!

Our first half term:

We have had a fantastic first half term in Nursery. Here are a selection of our favourite experiences from the past 8 weeks! 

We enjoyed our sleepy slumber party at the beginning of the term! Mmm, hot chocolate! 

We were so excited when we met our pet guinea pigs. We love looking after them! 

On 'Yellow' day we enjoyed lots of activites which help us have a healthy mind.

We had so much fun watching 'Peace at Last' when they came to school. We listened to lots of music and watched some super acting.

With the help of Luna we found some sticks and turned them into magic wands. Abracadabra! 

We investigated pumpkins! We scooped out the inside, felt the seeds and smelt them!
