Foundation - Nursery

Welcome to the Letchmore Nursery Class Page!


There are three nursery classes:

Morning Nursery session is called Hummingbird class

We deliver a curriculum based on the framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Development matters


We cover seven areas of learning and development which are implemented through a planned, purposeful play, both outdoors and in. This learning is developed through rich, challenging learning experiences, which offer opportunities for the children to explore and take risks, learn through first-hand experience and gain greater independence, supporting their natural curiosity, and motivation to learn. As the children cover the areas of learning, we respond to their individual emerging needs and interests, guiding their development through warm, positive, skilful interactions, which we develop daily.


Autumn one

Our topic this half term is ‘All about me’

The children have settled well into the Nursery class. They follow the nursery routine and find their way around the setting. The children have been enjoying a range of activities and making new friends.


Rolling and spinning a hoop.


Cutting and sticking to create.


Role play and construction using loose parts.


Making up stories using small world sets.


Exploring natural objects.


Splashing in puddles.


Please look out for our weekly Nursery newsletter to find out about what we are learning in class.


In Nursery we enjoy sharing children’s new experiences from school and home so do celebrate and discuss them with us.


Autumn term 2

Our topic this term is ‘Nursery Rhymes’.

This term we have been learning new songs and rhymes. The children have grown in confidence and are accessing all areas of the nursery. The children have been encouraged to follow their interests being supported by quality adult interactions and support.


The children have been exploring the forest school area. They are developing independence skills to change their own shoes and put on their coats. In these sessions, the children have looked closely at seasonal change and how it effects their surroundings. They have made a hedgehog home and then gone on to create their own hedgehogs using clay and natural materials. 


The children have particularly enjoyed the stories shared in class and are beginning to retell them using props.


Cooking in the tuff spot and seeing what happens when we mix ingredients together.


Working together and sharing resources.



Incy Wincy spider creations. We have been practising using scissors and drawing.

We counted eight legs.


Creating patterns and looking at signs of autumn.


We made a wreath for Remembrance Day.


The children were interested in volcanoes, so we made one out of cardboard and made it erupt by mixing ingrediencies together.


We blew in the straw to make the bubbles overflow. The bubbles blew away in the wind and we chased them. The bubbles were different sizes.


We worked together in forest school.


Twinkle, twinkle little star.

We helped others and raised money for children in need.


Catching water, hearing it dripping. How long will it take to fill the pot?


Building confidence to mark make. Writing a list.
