Home to Nursery

Hello everyone and welcome to our home to nursery transition page

Transition is going to look a little different this year however we  endeavour to do as much as possible to ensure that your child’s transition is as smooth as possible, in due course.

In the nursery, we focus on 15 core books and the children are able to choose 1 book to focus on every 4 weeks, exploring this book in different ways. We will be uploading activities, here on the website. The book in which we have decided to read is “Whatever Next” by Jill Murphy.

There will be different activities to choose from so you can decide what you would like to do. The activities will cover the following Curricular Areas:
– Literacy
– Numeracy
– Health and Well being
– Expressive Arts

If you would like to participate in these activities and show us all your hard work, please tweet us at @sunnyside_ps. Please state if you give your permission for your child’s photo to be uploaded the  website.
