Nursery Reading Scheme for children starting Reception in September.

All parents should have received an email giving you information about our Nursery Reading Scheme. Children who are starting Reception in September will be taking home a book bag on Thursday/Friday. If your child does not attend Nursery on those days he/she will collect their book bag on the following Monday.

Parent/Carer Workshop

Thank you to those parents who were able to attend the Phonics workshop. We are glad you found it helpful.

Below please find a link to the Power point presentation and a link to the pure sounds to help you with the pronunciation.




Read Write Ink- Pure Sounds Video

Use of our Interactive White Board during Nursery sessions.


Interactive whiteboards are used to support the Nursery children in their understanding and learning linked to out Nursey Curriculum. Many aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage are used via videos/stories/songs and visuals to give the children in the Nursery a variety of ways of learning key concepts and embed learning. 


Clips and videos are carefully chosen to enable the children to deepen their understanding building on from the physical provision both indoors and outdoors which the children use throughout the day. This resource also develops the children's language skills by enabling  us to show pictures of objects and locations talked about in the stories we read.

Using Cutlery 

We are encouraging to children to use a knife and fork when they eat lunch and tea in the Nursery. Children of Nursery age are able to use cutlery and with help they soon learn how to use a knife and fork correctly when eating. Some foods are harder to cut that others and they will still need help cutting up food before they eat it. Please encourage your child to use a knife and fork at home and model good cutlery use.


Thank you for your support.

Supporting your child during toilet training.

Please find links to a supporting document and website to help support your child with their toilet training. Please view the document and website and continue to encourage your child to use the toilet at home.


Parent workshop Powerpoint on Speech and Language and Personal, Social and Emotional development in the Nursery.

Forest School.

Please look out for a message via MCAS to let you know when it will be your child's turn to attend the Forest School session. Full details about Fielding's Forest School are listed below.




Settling into Nursery

It has been wonderful to meet most of our new Nursery children and it has been fantastic to see how many of them have settled into the routines of starting a new Nursery so quickly. You will be pleased to hear that although some of you have left your child crying with us, in no time at all they have calmed down and are happily playing and exploring in the Nursery. 


For those children who are finding the transition difficult we will always be there to support and work together with parents to help their children feel happy at our Nursery. 


Wow notes.

As part of the children’s development in the Nursery, we collect examples of how they are progressing through the Seven Areas of Learning: Language and Communication, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.


To support your child’s development and to help the accuracy of our judgements, please try to complete four of these ‘wow’ moments per half term. A ‘wow’ moment would be your child doing something for the first time or showing confidence while taking part in an activity with you. Write a brief description of what your child did on one of the cards, cut it out and bring it into Nursery. We will then stick the ‘wow’ moment into their learning journey and use it to support our understanding of their development

Values Ambassadors

To reward the Nursery children when they continue to make 'good choices', we place a picture of them on the 'Values Ambassadors' board. At the end of each week, we choose one girl and one boy who have been showing and demonstrating our Values and also following our 'Golden Rules'. Each child then receives a sticker, a small certificate to take home and a round of applause from their friends. With so many amazing children in the Nursery, it is always a hard choice.

Forest School 

Forest School sessions are led by Nursery Teachers and Mrs Watts who is a certified Forest School teacher as well as the class teacher for RF Reception class at Fielding. 


You will receive a message via your MCAS account on a Friday/Wednesday to let you know if your child is attending Forest School on Monday/Thursday. If you child is due to attend Forest School then please send them to Nursery with wellies or waterproof shoes. They will also need a raincoat/shower jacket as the weather does not stop us. 


The Fielding Forest School is located on our school field. Children will have the opportunity to explore the forest and take part in themed and seasonal activities.

Children Bringing Comfort Toys to Nursery

While the children are settling into the Nursery we understand that some children need to bring comfort toys to the Nursery to help them in their settling on process. We encourage the children to keep comfort toys in their bags so that they do not get lost.


If children mislay any items which they bring to Nursery we will attempt to find them and return them. Unfortunately we are unable to spend time looking for items during busy periods in the Nursery. If a child looses an item we will then look for it at the end of the session or at the beginning of the next day. We ask parents if they can please be patient to have items returned and not expect staff to look for items during the session

What will my child be learning about this week?

Week Beginning 20-05-24

Summer Term

This week we will be completing our curriculum challenge of 'How do I get about?'


This week will be thinking about a country called France and considering how we could get there.


This week we will be solving simple number problems by sharing quantities between two or three people.


Our question of the week is: Where would I go if I wanted to travel to France.


This week we will be continuing our Phonics lessons. This week we will be learning the sounds- 'e', 'l' and 'h'. Please view the link above to the 'pure sounds' video for the correct pronunciation of the sounds.


Please use the phonics pack below to support your child at home. There is no need to return the pack to Nursery as it is for home use only. You will need to print the pages out to enable your child to practice writing the sounds.


This week our poem of the week is: 'Hickory, Dickory, Dock'.

What does my child do at Nursery?

We give feedback about your child's progress during our Parent Consultation meetings. We will not be able to give parents daily feedback due to the numbers of children we have attending each day. If we need to chat to you about anything we will always phone or email.

Supporting Children with Additional Needs

All children may experience some difficulties in learning from time to time during their school life. We aim to provide equal access to the whole curriculum for all children including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).  All nursery staff are involved in the learning and development of pupils with SEND with Parents/Carers involved at all stages.

Mrs Chadwick is the school SENDCo, and she works closely with nursery.


We place great emphasis on identifying pupils with additional needs as early as possible, therefore ensuring a differentiated curriculum to accommodate individual needs and allow maximum access to the curriculum. Where a child has a particular individual need, we will make reasonable adjustments to help them overcome their difficulties which may include additional support. Depending on the identified need this support may take place in class, in a small group or on an individual basis. On occasion, additional support is sought from an external agency such as;

  • School Health
  • Behavior Support service
  • Educational Psychology Service
  • Speech and Language 

  • Occupational Therapy 

  • SEN Inclusion team 

  • Early Start 

  • Family support

You can also see an overview of our Special Educational Needs support by clicking here to see our whole school provision and local offer.

Early Pick Up during PM Sessions

If you are picking your child up from Nursery before 3.30pm please inform us by passing a message over to a member of our Nursery Team on the door or by phoning or emailing us. If you are picking up from the Ladybird class at 3.30pm then please be aware that the Ladybird children go to tea at 3.30pm till 4.00pm. We will have the children ready to go at 3.30pm if we know in advance. If we are unaware that you are collecting your child at 3.30 they may be on their way to tea and may be disappointed that they will miss tea. Thank you for your continued support and consideration.
