What we will be learning this term

This term, we will be talking about ourselves and our families and we will be reading the books: Owl Babies, Monkey Puzzle and So Much.
In nursery, we learn how to manage our feelings and our behaviour and we practice talking and listening to others. Through our exciting topics, your child will have opportunities to explore painting, cooking and 3D model making, as well as learning about letters and numbers.
In October, our new topic will be Fairy Tales. We will be reading and exploring The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and many more!
After October half-term, our topic will be Celebrations and Festivals where we will learn about birthdays and other celebrations through role-play and exciting games.

I have been working at Grinling Gibbons since 2016, and it has been an honour to be part of such a brilliant team. We have the most talented young people, and they push me to strive professionally.

Every day at work is fun and exciting as we support these young people to achieve their goals. We give the children all the tools they need to succeed at school, and I learn from them as much as they learn from me.

The children make coming in every day a pleasure!
