This beautiful, purpose built space will help your child have fun and explore, feeding their curiosity and sense of wonder.

Our 'Little diggers' delve deep into their learning and love exploring.

Morning Sessions: 9.00am - 12.00 pm    Afternoon Sessions: 12.30pm - 3.30pm

All day sessions (30 hours) 9.00am - 3.00pm

 

We also offer an additional 1/2 hour session for 30 hour children at the end of day (£2.50 a session).

*These sessions can be booked in for the term but cannot be changed once booked in*

 

The children will need a change of clothes in a draw string bag to stay on their peg in

case of any accidents or if they get wet while playing at Nursery.

 

In the cold weather the children will still have access to the outdoor areas, so they will need a warm/waterproof coat and suitable shoes.

 

Children staying for 30 hours will have the option of bringing a packed lunch or purchasing a school dinner.

 

Monday is our PE day.

Thursday is our day for Commando Joe training or Forest school.

We ask for all children to come to school in joggers or leggings with pumps/ trainers

to ensure they can take part in all activities safely on these days.

 

Friday is our Library Bus day.

The children will visit the Library Bus for a story and they can take a book home provided that they bring their library book bag to school (bags can be purchased from the school office).

Our new topic for Spring is:

 

  

  

 

Tell me a story!

 

In this topic we will be exploring all of the different ways to tell a story. We will listen to classic rhymes and stories and practise retelling ’The Gingerbread Man’ using ‘Talk for Writing’.

 

This topic is all about unleashing our imaginations and telling the stories that are important to us. We will use ‘Helicopter Stories’ to practise telling our own stories and act them out with our friends.

 

We will continue to develop our fine motor skills by using our fingers to cut, rip, squeeze, tear, wiggle and stretch. All of this finger exercise will strengthen our hands ready to write.

We will also practise ’Write Dance’ to explore our love of writing.  

 

We will continue to explore numbers, colours, shapes and sounds. We will work on using a range of tools such as pencils and scissors and encourage mark making in all areas of our Nursery.

Home learning

 

 

At Delves we believe when home and school work together to support children they will grow and succeed in a safe and caring environment.

We will use Marvellous Me to let you know all of the WOW moments your child has in school.

 If your child does something fantastic at home don't forget to fill out a WOW voucher star for them and hand them in to any member of staff in Nursery.

You can also email any work, videos or photos to homelearning@delvesinfantschool.co.uk

Please put Nursery or Little Diggers (for the 2 year olds) in the subject heading.
