Summer Term


A very warm welcome to Stowford Nursery.

The Nursery team consists of: Mrs Yasmin Rogers (Nursery Manager), Mrs Hayley Stewart, Mrs Michelle Wark, Mrs Sue Fry and Mrs Sadie Johns.


During the summer term, the children will continue to learn and develop their routines and boundaries within the nursery. We will be supporting our new children with this too. We will also be focusing on the continued development of self-care and independence to ensure that our school-leavers will be ready for the transition into foundation in September.

We will also be exploring our outside environment and looking for changes within our setting, using this to enhance our knowledge and understanding of how seasons differ. 

 We will continue with weekly food preparation/cooking activities. The children have said that this is one of their favourite activities in the nursery.

Weekly Wild Tribe sessions that support the children to develop their understanding of the environment they live in will continue and will focus on noticing and observing what changes are occurring in our world. We will be using our senses to support this.

During our PE sessions, we will be practising different gross and fine motor skills ready for sports day. We will be using the hall and the field (weather permitting) to encourage children to take part in different activities, learn new skills and support their peers.

This term we will be working on developing and extending our fine motor skills with lots of opportunities to mark-make. Our regular flipper flapper sessions and dough disco will continue throughout the week, both of which support and enhance gross and fine motor skill development.

We will be continuing our journey of phonics learning by introducing the ‘Foundations Little Wandle: Letters and Sounds Revised phonics programme’. This will help develop childrens phonological awareness, their love of stories and rhymes, increase their vocabulary and confidence to talk and improve their listening and ability to take part in back-and-forth conversations.
