Welcome to Nursery Saplings
Hello and welcome to our page.
Nursery are having so much fun exploring the classroom, sharing experiences and creating with their friends. As teachers, we have observed the children when they play and spoken to them about their interests. This has lead us to make some small changes to our classroom and the activities within it. This will happen throughout the year as the children progress through our curriculum and their interests change.
There are lots of pictures and information below, for you to look at and we tweet regularly so don't forget to follow us at @firsprimarysale
If you have any questions, please feel free to come and see me!
We are really enjoying going on our adventure together.

Please ensure children bring a named water bottle to Nursery. If they are full time and stay for lunch, they should bring additional drink in their lunch box.

We hope you like it and can see something that your are excited to explore!
Our Reading Gallery
We love to read in Nursery! We read at least two books everyday and love the chance to snuggle up in the reading area with familiar books. Why not take a look at some pictures of us reading!
Our Art Gallery
We love to explore and create using lots of different resources. Sometime our art is linked to a topic or book and sometimes art is one of the ways we express ourselves. We use paint, crayons, playdough, collage and natural materials to create or art. We focus on the process rather than the outcome; that way all of our work is unique, just like us!
Take a look at some of our art work :)
Phonics - Phase 1
Phase 1 phonics is vital as it develops many phonological skills that are essential for successful reading. The pictures below explain the different aspects of Phase 1. I would also like draw your attention to Mini Writers Club on Instagram. They have lots of handy explanations and activity ideas, so why not take a look.
At home play ideas
It is a well known fact that children love to play. What is lesser known, is that whilst children are playing they are learning!
Try some of these fun games and activities to help your little one learn whilst playing.
There are also a number of websites that have lots of educational and fun games to play or videos to watch.
