Welcome to Woodlands Nursery

We are very proud of all our children, as they have settled into nursery well, learning new routines quickly and making new friends.

This page will give details of the topics that we are going to cover, as well as photographs of children engaged in learning. We hope that this will help you to further support them at home, and encourage them to share with you all the exciting things that they do.

Important Information

Nursery starts promptly at 8.45am / 12.15pm and finishes at 11.45am / 3.15pm depending on the sessions that are being attended.

Children have access to the outside area every day, whatever the weather. It is important that they come with suitable clothing and footwear. Children can leave a pair of wellingtons in school. Please make sure that they are named. 

And last of all, please feel free to talk to us at any time. We are always here for you and your child, and together we can ensure that your child makes the most of their time in nursery.


What are we learning about this year?

In Term 1 we spent time making new friends, and learning new routines. The children settled quickly, and we were able to explore the topic “I’ve got a body”, using stories, rhymes and songs as a stimulus. 

In Term 2 we are found out about the topic “Let’s have a party”. We are finding out about how to celebrate birthdays, and about the importance of giving at Christmas. We are looking forward to performing at our Christmas sing-a-long, where we will sing songs and rhymes we have been learning. 

In Term 3 we learnt about animals, using a range of stories including Dear Zoo and We’re going on a bear hunt. 

In Term 4 we looked at growth and plants. Our “See how they grow” topic helped us to find out about how seeds grow, and the vegetables we planted are still growing now!

In Term 5 we will be going on a hunt for creepy crawlies, using magnifying glasses to find all the wonderful wildlife in our local environment. This is always a topic that is enjoyed by the children. 

Finally, in Term 6, we will explore the many different occupations there are in life. We use stories as a starting point, and would welcome any visitors from people within our community who help others.
