Thank you for visiting our Nursery page. We hope you enjoy looking around.
We hope you all had a wonderful Easter holiday! This term, our topic is called ‘Can we explore?’ We will be starting the term learning about ‘Pirates’ and the adventures or explorations ‘Pirates’ take. We will be reading books such as ‘Mrs Pirate’, ‘Pirate Pete’ and ‘The Pirates Next Door.’ The children will have the opportunity to become pirates and have their own adventures within our Nursery.
This term the children will be having a ‘Pirate Party’. We will all dress as pirates and try some ‘Pirate food’. All parents/guardians are invited to attend the party where the children have a special treat for you all! Party times are as follows; 10:30-11:30am (morning children) and 2:00-3:00pm (afternoon children). We hope to see all families join the fun and games.
Thank you to all the parents who came to see our chick family as part of ‘Family Week’. It was so lovely to see so many of you.
Many of our children dressed in their pyjamas as part of World Book Day. We had a great day! Thank you for all your support.
There is no formal homework in Nursery, however, please continue to borrow books from our Self Select Bookcase to read regularly to your child. Also, feel free to borrow from our Games Library. If you would like any further information or activities to do with your child do not hesitate to speak to any of the Nursery Staff.
We have added copies of some of the nursery rhymes we have been learning to the parent notice board in the cloakroom area. Please help yourselves and practise them at home too.
In Nursery we use lots of resources to help with the children’s learning. Some of the webpages that we use, the children can use at home. Below, you will find links to the webpages:

As the children are now into the Summer term and many are moving up into Reception very soon, we are now encouraging all of them to begin to wear pants rather than nappies and pull ups. If you need any advice on how to toilet train your child, please don’t hesitate to ask us.
If you have a smart phone you can now get the Abingdon Primary School App. With this App, you will be able to receive instant notifications from the nursery department directly, and from the school office, to help ensure you are up-to-date with all important information.
