Nursery Wilma Rudolph Class


Our Nursery Class Pioneer is Wilma Rudolph

When Wilma was a little girl she became poorly. The doctors thought she would never walk without help. Wilma was determined to learn to run fast like a gazelle. She perservered and worked hard to finally achieve her dream. In the Olympic Games she won a gold medal and people named her 'Gazelle'.

Summer Term 2 2024 Topic: All at Sea!

Land Ahoy! Our topic 'All at Sea!' will again focus on a key book each week with a related rhyme and poem. We will be making flags and creating maps and of course include a pirate ship and treasure island in our role play areas! In maths we will be looking at maths concepts such as capacity, times of the day as well as positional language.

We will have the exciting opportunity to visit Brighton Sea Life Centre followed by a picnic on the beach on Wednesday 19th June 2024. We can’t wait!

Topic web summer 2

Learning through stories

In Nursery we plan around a book. We choose stories that are worth reading and re-reading – stories that our children will love. We explore the story, the characters and we have lots of fun playing with the words, the rhymes and the alliteration.

Each week a YouTube link to the key text will be added to your child's keyring on their book bag for you to share and talk together at home. (Please always check the link for E-Safety).


Rhyme Time Challenge

Learning and saying rhymes is fun. Rhymes help children feel confident with words and they help children to develop their early language skills needed for reading and writing. 

We’ve chosen the rhymes, songs and poems carefully so that they offer an extension to our key theme/text and interest, and provide new vocabulary and different kinds of language challenges.

Each week we will add our Rhyme Time Challenge on your child’s keyring along with a link to our core book - just scan the QR codes.  (Please always check the link for E-Safety).

Vocabulary Development

We introduce new words that are meaningful and useful.  We explore words from the story, or theme, specifically selected to develop our children’s understanding of each word in the context of their everyday lives.
