Welcome to Nursery


Welcome to our class page.

Our Nursery consists of part time and full time children.


 Mrs Smithson is the Nursery teacher and Miss Bowley is the teaching assistant.


In Nursery we provide lots of opportunities for the children to build their confidence and self-awareness, and also to manage their feelings and behaviour. Communication is a key area of your child's learning in nursery. They will spend lots of time sharing rhymes, songs, stories and playing games to develop their speaking and listening skills.

If you have any concerns, questions or need support, contact Miss Holmes (phase leader for EYFS) at and she will be happy to help. 






This year EYFS are using tapestry. It is wonderful to see parents starting to get involved and adding observations and pictures already. 

We regularly add memos onto the tapestry site (these can be accessed through the web browser not the app), it is important you check these memos to find out important information. 

Autumn Term


Autumn 1- This half-term our topic is '999 What's your emergency.'

It is all about people who help us. 

We are going to be learning about people who help us, what they can do and how they are helpful. Our role-play area will be a ‘Veterinary Surgery’ this half-term, we'll be pretending to look after poorly animals, give them medicine and bandage them up. We will be reading the book 'Mog and the Vee Ee Tee’. 


In maths we will be learning to recite some number names in sequence (0-5), we will be beginning to make comparisons between quantities and beginning to learn and use language relating to quantities, such as ‘more’ and ‘a lot’.


In literacy we will enjoy sharing lots of stories, rhymes and songs. We will also be focusing on making lots of different marks using a range of materials. We will also be beginning to describe and talk about the marks we draw and paint.

At Riverview we follow a phonics scheme known as Read Write Inc. but this does not start for Nursery children until the Summer term. In the meantime we focus on delivering a range of Phase 1 Letters and Sounds listening games and activities to help develop the children’s listening skills.
