Miss Askew and Mrs Elford welcome you to Leigh C of E Nursery!

In nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Objectives in line with development matters.  Throughout the year we will follow all of the major festivals and celebrations in order to inform our planning but most importantly the themes and learning opportunities  will be directed by the learning and interests that we observe from your children as they 'play'.  In our nursery we always ask the children what they are learning rather than what are they 'playing'.   To find out about our termly curriculum in more detail please follow the link to look at our curriculum maps. Please keep coming back to this page to find out what we have been doing. We will also post any useful information or links that may be of interest to you.


Please take a look below to see what we have been up to this week:

Friday 30th November 2018


Well what a busy two weeks we have had and now we are heading into December and the countdown to Christmas! It only seems like yesterday when the children were coming into nursery for the first time and now they are practicing hard to put on their first nativity performance at Leigh School! And you are most definitely in for a treat!


This week the children have been learning about the birth of Jesus and the events that surrounded his birth.  They have been role playing the story in the home corner and with small world figures.  The children also became very interested in all the rain that we had and so we explored how the built up water in the tuff tray outside was perfect for sailing the boats. 


Most of the children have learned the names of the different numbers to 10 and so we used these numbers to solve problems by matching the numeral to an amount of objects.  We also had great fun with the old playdough tubs and used them to help us learn the vocabulary of size like higher, shorter, taller and smaller.


Next week the children will be continuing to practice their nativity and will perform a dress rehearsal to the school on Thursday morning.  We will also begin the countdown to Christmas with lots of fun Christmas activities.  We are hoping the children will be amazed at how we have transformed the classroom when they arrive on Monday.


Please keep checking Marvellous Me, emails and the schools facebook page for messages and updates from school.  You can check the gallery below to see all the wonderful things that we have been doing throughout the week and you are also welcome to look at your child's learning journal when you drop off or collect your child from nursery at any time.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Miss Askew and Mrs Elford
