Mrs Roche

Hello and welcome to my class page


Mrs Roche, Miss Davies and Miss Kaur

On this page you will find information about the current topic, news and updates regarding special events and dates to remember as well as access to photographs of the children and the fun things they have been doing whilst in school.

 Home Learning and Tapestry

A big thank for all the home learning observations submitted to Tapestry! We really appreciated all your hard work and support for the children’s learning. It is so important that even during this unprecedented time that children are still learning and progressing as much as possible.

A quick reminder- Each day there will be a piece of work uploaded by the teachers onto the MEMO area on Tapestry these have to be accessed through your web browser and NOT the APP. There will be a phonics, maths and literacy lesson and on Friday there will be an investigation lesson! Please try to complete these lessons with your child daily and upload the tasks to Tapestry as an observation for your class teacher to view. Also, please do not forget to read with your child follow the link for lots of free Ebooks 

Welcome to the new term

Summer 2 ‘When I grow up’


During this topic the children will be reflecting on their year in Nursery and learning about the human lifecycle.  We will explore the past, the present and the future by looking at how we have grown and how we continue to grow.  The two main texts we will use during this topic are: ‘When I grow up’ written by Tim Minchin and ‘Busy people books’ linked to occupations.  Please find below a video of the story ‘When I grow up’ via YouTube:

During this topic we will continue to focus on the children’s mark marking and writing skills linking this with their phonics. We also aim to encourage lots of creativity and imagination through our Understanding of the World; thinking about ourselves how we have grown and what may happen in the future?; what aspirations we have for ‘when we grow up’.

Through this term we will continue with both: Shape, space and measure and number elements of maths.  We will be repeating some key skills learned through the year working towards mastery of numbers 0-10 and preparing the children for their learning as they move towards Reception class.  

Also during this period of uncertainty, we still love to see what the children are learning and getting up to.  So please do upload to Tapestry your family celebrations of all types e.g. Religion; births; birthdays as it’s really important that we still celebrate these milestones even if we can’t have a party and invite family and friends.
