Term 3

Welcome back to term 3!

This term is all about ‘Under the Sea’ and it will be filled with exciting activities. Throughout the term we will be investigating different sea creatures and looking at their habitat and what they eat. Alongside this we will be reading ‘The Rainbow Fish’ which is an excellent book helping children to learn the importance of sharing and caring for each other. We will have puppets and masks for the children to really explore the story.

This term is full of craft activities from making under water wax pictures to Rainbow Fish collages and much much more. We will be showcasing our work this term as well as the under the sea songs we have learnt with a celebration event at the end of term. Parents are welcome to join us for out ‘Under the Sea Tea!’ Dates for this will be posted shortly.

The children have settled well and it will be this term that we start focusing on recognising our own names as well as trying to trace and form some of the letters within them. This will support our ‘Who is Here?’ board where the children will be encouraged so self register using their name tags.

The most important thing during this term is that your children feel happy and confident coming into their class, and that we get to know your children in order to make their nursery year at West Town Lane a fantastic adventure.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff; there will be lots of us around!  

Some things to remember:

Don’t forget to label all of your child’s bits and bobs.

We’ll be using the outdoor environment whatever the weather! Please provide appropriate clothing.

If you need to speak to a member of school staff please wait until the beginning/end of the day, alternatively, please call the Office.


We are a rights respecting school.
