Welcome to Nursery
We wanted to write to you all as you start your home learning journey.
There are lots of things about Nursery that you might miss. You may miss your friends, your key worker and all of the wonderful activities we do during the session. We have planned some fun activities for you to do at home and hopefully it won't be too long until we are back together again.
You have had a fantastic year so far and we are so proud of how well you have settled in Nursery. Well done everybody!
Please send any pictures or videos of your home learning to
or tweet us @kensingprimary using the hashtag #nurseryhomelearning
We're looking forward to seeing you again soon

As part of the EYFS curriculum we will explore and develop all our skills across all 7 areas of learning. These are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
Our curriculum is play based and planned around the children's interests. Adults carefully observe the children so that it enables us to plan targetted activities to support the children all round development.
We will also be supporting children's learning through interventions such as Nursery Narrative (a social skills group), Speech and Language Project, Finger Gym (developing physical skills to support writing) and Numbers and Patterns (supporting mathematical development).
We ensure that our children receive a broad and rich curriculum with a balance of child initiated learning and focused teacher inputs. It is important that children learn through play and that they develop a love of learning and an inquisitive mind.
All children are allocated a key worker. A key person is a named member of staff with responsibilities for a small group of children who helps those children in the group feel safe and cared for.
During the first few weeks of Nursery our theme is "All about me". We have really enjoying getting to know each other and settling in to our Nursery environment and routines.
Over the coming weeks we will be exploring Autumn and are beginning to look at all things colour. This will involve recognising colours, colour mixing, Science experiments and our Wow visitor for the first half term will be an artist.
In Autumn 2 Term we will be exploring Divali, Stickman and Christmas we will also have a visit from Reindeers in December. Throughout the term we will also be following childrens interests and planning activities to coincide with these.
We are so excited for Spring term where will be learning about Chinese New Year and exploring lots of stories. We will also be looking at life cycles and changes in the environment. We are looking forward to our Wow visitor and our trip to the farm.
