Welcome to Nursery

It has been lovely to have had our Nursery families come in for visits over the past two weeks. We are looking forward to welcoming back children moving up from our 2 year old room and welcoming new families to Castlefield! 

Our topic for this half term is 'Me and my family'. We will be exploring what makes us unique and how are families are the same, or different from our friends.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

The children are learning how to building up relationships with their peers and the adults in the Nursery, as well as working hard on how to take turns and share with each other.  We are looking at what it is like to play in a group, making decisions and building on our play ideas together.


Communication and Language

We are having a particular focus on communication and language at Castlefield. This term we will be working hard at developing children’s listening and attention skills through short focused activities, and during their self chosen play. We will have a big focus in Nursery on learning new words and then being able to use them in conversation.

Physical Development

At Nursery we are exploring with different tools for mark making, for example, paint brushes, chalks and pens, both indoors and outdoors. Children are encouraged to make use of the garden for running, jumping, balancing and climbing.  Children are also learning how to put on and do up their own coats and wellies to go in the garden, as well as becoming more independent in their self care.
