Haughmond (Nursery)

Welcome to Haughmond Class

We are a Nursery class of 3 and 4 year olds, taught by Miss Fisher, Mrs Owen,  Miss Brudenell and Miss Reacord. 

We would like to welcome all our new children and their families to Haughmond class. We are looking forward to working with you.

Summer Term 2021


This term our topic is going to focus on ‘In the garden’ and ‘On the farm’. We will use story books linked to these topics to plan activities and build on the children’s previous learning. We will spend 2 weeks looking at each story. We will learn about seasonal changes that take place during the Summer term in regards to plants and animals.


We will provide lots of opportunities for role play, with a Home Corner in the classroom and a number of role play boxes, e.g. doctors, hairdressers, vets, shopping. Outside we have den/construction resources, an enclosed pond, a sand pit and a pirate ship.




Our focus stories this term are:

  • Grow it by Georgie Birkett
  • The very hungry caterpillar by Eric Carle
  • Freddie Frog by Axel Scheffler
  • On the farm by Axel Scheffler
  • Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell


We will use non-fiction books to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly, animals and a plant.  


Why not visit the library to borrow some of the books we will read in Nursery. Can you find any information books about Summer, butterflies or farm animals? 


Over the school year we aim for children to become very familiar with between 6 - 10 stories. We will read the stories frequently and encourage the children to join in with anticipated events and repeated phrases. Please click on the link below to see a list of Nursery’s key top ten books.

Fact: If you read just 1 book a day to your child, they will have read 1,825 books by their 5th birthday. Every day counts, every book counts.





In Mathematics we will be learning to;

  • Describe a familiar route,
  • Continue a repeating pattern,
  • Link numerals to amounts,
  • Practice positional language. 


 We will continue to practice:

  • Reciting numbers in order,
  • Recognising the numerals one to five,
  • Use number rhymes to recognise adding one more or taking one away,
  • Order simple events,
  • Match and recognise 2D shapes,
  • Use the language of size, e.g. big, small


Home school link book


We are so excited to introduce you to our new home school link book. The aim of the book is to share information and also to share celebrations.

Here are some examples of what will be in your child’s book;

  • Wow slips for you to share with us any amazing things your child has done at home.
  • A phonics sound mat for you and your child to look at together with an actions sheet so you know what actions we learn in school when learning each sound.
  • A reading book log- as each week your child will choose a picture book to bring home that you can read together. We will also put a question in the book for you to answer in relation to the story.



Celebrating Success


We would like to celebrate your child’s achievements at home and for you to share your proud moments with us.

Please collect a 'Wow' slip and write on it what your child has achieved, and the date. We welcome photographs or certificates to display in the cloakroom area, alongside the achievement stars.
