Welcome to Apple Tree Nursery

 Our team consists of: Mrs Burn - Class Teacher,  Miss Billings - Teaching Assistant and Mr Bryan - Teaching Assistant

We are learning

Our Topics this term are Explorers and Traditional Tales

For the first half term we will be looking at space and the planets in it.  We will be discussing how astronauts work in space and talking about their space ship.  In Maths we will be counting up to ten and counting down from ten, as part of our role play related to the spaceship. We will also look at shapes in pictures of rockets. We will then look at villages and towns and develop our language related to size and describing words. 


In the second half term we will be doing activities based around traditional tales like ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘Little Red Riding hood’. This topic will also be used to develop our story telling skills and writing language. 

We will continue to have carpet sessions to develop good sitting and listening skills, taking turns and sharing ideas with each other.  During these times, we will introduce activities to develop their knowledge of the sounds in the alphabet and how they are formed.  We will also practise how to put them together to make short words.


We have Little Miss Sunshine to take home for excellent learning.  She will be able to join in with your activities at home. Please can you take a photo and write a few sentences so that your child can then share them with the rest of the class.

There are also some suggested activities to help your child learn at home on our nursery noticeboard outside of the classroom.


Forest School will now be on Monday Mornings.

Please do not hesitate to contact us on our class email address if you have any concerns or questions at
