Nursery Places September 2021

Is your child 3 and ready to start nursery in September 2021? We are now taking applications for places in our Nursery - please contact the school office on 01275 372659 to register your interest.

At Crockerne Church of England Nursery we provide children with a wide range of learning opportunities. They will learn through structured and child initiated learning. We provide well-planned play, both indoors and outdoors, encouraging learning through enjoyment and challenge. We encourage children to become independent learners. The emphasis in Nursery is on making learning through play, fun and rewarding for your child.

Teacher - Mrs Juliet Evans

  • To create a secure, caring and friendly environment where both adults and children are valued and have mutual respect for each other.
  • To develop a child's social skills to enable them to interact with their peers and adults and to prepare them to become tolerant members of the local community.
  • To promote high standards of behaviour and provide a code of conduct, by which all pupils will live, work and play.

The curriculum is known as the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’. The curriculum has seven areas of learning and development. All areas are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive

Term 5 February 2021


Acorn Nursery Class

Term 5



We would like to welcome you back to nursery, I hope you all had a relaxing Easter and was able to enjoy to family time together.


Our next REAL project starts this week!  Our REAL question is…

…Are there superheroes among us?

Our REAL impact will be for our children to learn about the real superheroes around us.  The super people they may meet (fire, police, ambulance and lifeboat), the super plants and insects they may find in their local environment and finally how they themselves are superheroes.


Our topic will have a ‘sparkly start’ as our superheroes save the classroom from a frozen catastrophe and we will think how we can be actual superheroes to defrost our Nursery.  For our first outcome will look at super-plants and plant our own vegetable garden.  This will give us the opportunity to care for the plants, see how they change and develop as the days go by.


Our second outcome will collect and identify bugs, building up a vocabulary.  They will look at the similarities and differences in the habitats that the mini beasts live in.  Back in nursery we will build our very own mini beast hotel.


Our third outcome we will investigate some of the superheroes we may meet in the community.  Hopefully (COVID allowing) we will be able to meet some of them.


We have posted the next knowledge organiser which explains the ways you can support your child’s learning at home…..  





Jolly Phonics

We are continuing to learn a different sound each week using the Jolly Phonic action to support us. Sometimes we listen to sounds and blend them together to make a word for example….. h   o   p….. hop, or  s   i   t…..sit   (we then do the action)

The sound for the week is written after the date, you might like to find something beginning with that sound to put into your child’s Treasure Box to bring and share with the other children.

We hope you and your child have enjoyed having Elmer, You Choose books, story sacks and maths challenges at home (if you haven’t had them yet, don’t worry one will be coming home soon!) We have had lots of positive feedback explaining how enthusiastic and proud the children have been to take them home and also share their learning when they return.  We will be starting to send home a reading book for you to share together and enjoy from this week.  Please return each item, after a few days, so we can send it out again to another family.


Recently we have been lucky enough to enjoy some sunny weather, please can each child bring a sunhat to school and have sun cream applied on appropriate days.


We are looking forward to a busy, fun and interesting term. Please come and talk to us if you have any questions or worries.
