Staff: Our staff in nursery are Miss Wood and Miss Wiberg (Tuesday and Friday mornings) Supporting us in Nursery are Mrs Mayfield and Mrs Eaton

 

Reading challenge: We encourage parents to stay and read a book to their child at the beginning the session so that their reading chart can be ticked and children can receive reading certificates. Books may be borrowed from our Nursery library to read at home.

 

Home Learning: We love to see examples of learning that the children complete at home independently or with their adults. Please bring any home learning or pictures that have been completed to Miss Wood. Photographs can be sent to enquiries@woodhousewest.sheffield.sch.uk (subject: FAO Miss Wood)

Books to enjoy at home!

 

We're going on a bear hunt

Follow and join in the family's excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What a surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest!

 

Owl Babies

A gentle tale of three baby owls reassures young children that Mummy will always come home. Three baby owls, Sarah, Percy and Bill, wake up one night in their hole in a tree to find that their mother has gone. So they sit on a branch and wait... Darkness gathers and the owls grow anxious, wondering when their mother will return. But, at last, she does and they bounce up and down with joy, welcoming her home.

 

Peter and the Wolf

Peter and the Wolf was composed by the great Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev to introduce children to the instruments of the orchestra. This timeless tale is beautifully retold and illustrated with by award-winning Ian Beck, and remains a wonderful introduction to the world of music.

 

Hoot Owl- master of disguise

Hoot Owl is no ordinary owl – oh no! – he’s a master of disguise! And he will use his expert camouflage powers to trick his unsuspecting prey into succumbing to him! Tiny animals of the night ... beware! But, somehow, Hoot Owl's prey keeps escaping... Hmmm, perhaps he isn't quite as masterful as he believes. Will he ever succeed in catching himself some dinner?
