Cherry - Nursery

  •  Communication and language
  •  Physical development
  •  Personal, social and emotional development
  •  Literacy
  •  Mathematics
  •  Understanding the world
  •  Expressive arts and design

To enable groupings to be fluid and flexible, the curriculum is carefully designed to ensure there's a thematic link between projects. For example, nursery's project 'why can't I have chocolate for breakfast?', reception's 'Why are carrots orange?' and Key Stage 1's 'Scrummdiddlyumptious' are all food based projects. Children are sensitively and carefully guided to the appropriate learning opportunities to ensure knowledge is cumulatively sequenced for each child. 


Our current topics are Sunshine and Sunflowers and Shadows and Reflections

Sunshine and Sunflowers

In the Sunshine and Sunflowers project your child will explore their local environment and see how it has changed throughout the year. They will grow flowers, fruit and vegetables in the garden area. They will learn how to care for plants and animals, identifying some different types. They will take part in outdoor learning activities and find out how to stay safe in the sun.

Supporting your child at home

  • Grow some quick growing plants together, such as salad leaves, radishes or cress.
  • Plan and go on a picnic.
  • Go on a local walk and talk about the changes that have happened to living things throughout the year.
  • Share and discuss the attached Did you know? resource.

Weekly observations of your child will be recorded on Tapestry. Any home learning ideas and messages from the class teachers will be left on here. Please aim to access Tapestry at least once a week to ensure you are up to date with your child’s learning.

If you need help with accessing Tapestry then please talk to Miss James or ask in the school office.

Prayer Space

We have discussed what prayer is, what people may pray for, and the different ways in which people pray. We have a collection of activities to access, or we simply sit and reflect.
