Nursery

We are Hillside’s Nursery class! We are active, adventurous, creative, happy little children who love to have fun. Our class teacher is Mrs Guy and she is supported by Mrs Dixon and Mrs Machin. During our dinnertimes we have Mrs Green and Mrs Williamson looking after us.

In Nursery we LOVE to learn through our play. In our classroom we have so many different activities to explore including sand play, water play, reading, role-playing, imaginative play with small world, construction and much more! One of our favourites is being creative…. We enjoy painting, collaging, making playdough models, drawing and writing. Sometimes we get a little bit messy BUT it means we have had lots of FUN!

Each day we like to take part in a phonics activity, this is built on throughout the year to give us the skills to be able to read. The early stages of phonics include lots of listening activities, listening for rhymes, sounds in the environments and exploring musical instruments. This is followed by learning the sounds each letter makes.

We love our forest school sessions! We put on our wellies and waterproofs and explore our woods every Friday. We love singing songs, identifying minibeasts, gathering natural materials to use in our classroom and taking part in activities!

We also like to take our learning out of school! We go on some very exciting trips during the school year. These include a visit to Amerton Farm to see Santa, a visit to Hoo Farm to see the lambs and a visit to Manchester Airport Runway Park!
