WELCOME TO NURSERY-Where learning is fun everyday!!!!

With.....Mrs K. Oliver, Nursery Class Teacher


EYFS Manager & Assistant Headteacher Message

Here in EYFS at Brickhouse we work very hard to achieve only the highest standards for each child. We believe each child is unique and we believe children achieve best when they have an all rounded balanced curriculum-both indoors and outdoors and when parents and staff work closely together. Should you have any unanswered questions about the running of EYFS please do come and see me...


Quality Mark Award

In November 2015 our Early Years Unit was awarded the Quality Mark for the first time. Our Assistant Head, EYFS team, staff, children and parents are delighted to announce that our Quality Mark Award was renewed in December 2018. 






I have created a list of fun remote learning activities you can do at home for the rest of the school week!  Why don't you try a few activities each day?


-Write your first name. What can you write this in? What can you find to use?

-Can you write your surname too?

-Sing the alphabet.  Write the alphabet, thinking about each letter formation.

-Sing along to the phonics songs you know: Jolly Phonics Songs in correct order - Letters and Diagraphs - YouTube & Phonics Song 2 (new version) - YouTube

-Look around your home for objects beginning with the sounds you know.

-Join in with your favourite Nursery Rhymes.

-Sing along to the number songs you know: Count to 10 | Counting Song for Kids | Pancake Manor - YouTube

-Look around your home for the numbers you know 0-5, 10 then 20.

-Keep counting 1-5 then to 10.

-Order numbers 0-5, 10 then 20.

-Look around your home for the shapes you know.  Tell your adult the properties of each shape.

-Play board games with your brother/sister/adult, waiting patiently to take your turn.

-Play listening games, listen to the rules carefully before playing. ie Simon Says, Musical Statues

-Draw a picture/write a note for Mrs Oliver and/or Miss Billingham

-Draw a picture/write a note for Mr White.

- Can you bake with your adult at home? Talking about each part of the recipe as you go.

- Talk to your adult about your bean plant.  What does it need to grow?  How big is it now?  Can you measure it?  What numbers can you see?



I will be available on the class email:

Please contact me with any questions.  I'd also love to see pictures of your learning...


Take care and keep yourselves safely at home whilst in self-isolation.  We can then all enjoy the fun of the Summer Holidays!


I’ll see you all in September!


Mrs Oliver



New Beginnings

Welcome to all of our new Nursery children and parents. A particular welcome to the new children and parents who have started with us after Easter. Please be assured our team are always available and are highly trained to ensure the children settle as quickly as possible. Children manage change in different ways and it can be emotional for them but we can guarantee that after a few weeks your child we be very happy and settled-please do be patient with us!


What's Going on in Summer 1?

Our main priority for Summer 1 is that our children remain happy, settled and enjoy school life. We spend a lot of time training the children; this includes encouraging them to become independent through tidying up, managing toilet needs, self-care and doing many things for themselves. Your child has now been  allocated a family group with friends and they are either a Brilliant Butterfly or a Busy Bee. Please see a member of staff if you are unsure which family group your child is in. Children meet in these groups each morning to begin their learning.



Our next topic is 'New Beginnings' and 'Dinosaurs'- We will talk about starting new things, not giving up, trying out new ideas. We will then move into Dinosaurs.

In Literacy we will continue to focus on name writing and letter sounds. We will share non-fiction texts and poetry and do lots of activities based around these.

In Mathematics we will focus on number recognition, counting and shapes.


What can you do at home?

Ask your child to identify and attempt to write their names.

Practise holding a pencil and using it correctly.

Count numbers out loud


Daily Routine

Your child will also access indoor and outdoor learning daily....please ensure your child has the appropriate clothing for outdoor weather and a pair of wellies available at all times. Once a day children will be able to free-flow across EYFS and access both the Nursery and Reception; as we work closely together and cover the same topics.


We focus heavily on Salley/Phonics, Literacy and Mathematics here at Brickhouse and we do this through covering all other areas of learning too.....this year we will be working closely with Reception to ensure that we can meet all our children's needs even more closely.


During this half-term, every day your child will experience daily carpet time sessions for Salley/Phonics, Literacy, and Mathematics, Number Fun and Name Writing.

Sharing stories is important! Please share stories at home with your child as often as you can...



-If you would like a copy of our daily routine please ask a member of the team!

-If you know a topic we should cover - please tell us....

-Up to date information will be on display in our cloakroom area-please pop in and find out what's going on...

-Any further questions how you can help your child at home, please ask Mr White.

-Have you had your What's coming up leaflet?



Learning in our school is so important every day-so please ensure your child is in school on time each day to learn and progress.

We do hope your child continues to enjoy their time in Nursery......If you have any concerns please see Mrs Oliver
Thank you!
