Welcome to our Nursery, the first steps of your child's learning journey at Goldthorn Park Primary School.

Welcome back to the new academic year at Goldthorn Park!

We are so pleased to be able to welcome all our children back altogether. We know that Nursery will bring challenges as they begin their school journey in EYFS but with everyone’s support, we know your child can succeed! We hope that you had an enjoyable and memorable summer and that you have all stayed safe and healthy. We look forward to hearing what the children have been getting up to. I am sure they all have lots of news to share.

In the Autumn term we will be learning a lot of new and exciting things. Our topic is ‘Humpty and Friends’ which is all about the Nursery rhyme of Humpty Dumpty. We will have a lot of hands-on activities for the children to partake in and we will capture their every move.

In English, we will be concentrating on our English language using nursery rhymes and discussion times. The children will be encouraged to communicate with adults and other children too. In Maths, we will start by looking at numbers 1 – 10 using songs and nursery rhymes then we will focus on our main numbers 1 – 3. Throughout the day we will encourage children to try and use their numbers effectively.

Reading is also very important for the children to develop their understanding of pictures and everyday objects. We remind you that children’s books need to be in school every day so that teachers can also listen to them read and help us to monitor their progress. This will also enable the books to be changed more regularly. However, we would still expect daily reading to happen at home. The books are slightly different than higher up the school, they have pictures and simple questions for you to ask the children.
Forest school will be taught once a week. This will be taught on Wednesdays. Children will need a waterproof coat and wellies so that no matter the weather we are able to partake in Forest School.

It would also be appreciated if all uniform (including PE kit and pumps and water bottles) could be labelled with your child’s full name and class.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher at the end of the school day or via Class Dojos. Thank you in anticipation of your continued support.

We have much excited for the Autumn Term and we look forward to a term packed full of learning and progress.
