Welcome to Nursery

In Nursery there are two members of staff. Mrs C Gibson is the class teacher and Mrs Tracey Last is the teaching assistant. We have split the children into key worker groups but the teacher has the overall responsibilty for assessments and reporting to parents. In Nursery we follow the Foundation Stage curriculum, which is made up of seven areas of learning. These are Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication and Language; Physical Development; Literacy; Maths; Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

All aspects of teaching and learning cover the seven areas of the Early Years curriculum. We teach through stories, topics and other subject areas such as speech and language groups, listeningand attention groups and phase 1 phonics. Phase 1 phonics concentrates on environmental sounds, musical instruments and their different sounds, syllables in words and robot talk. Activities to support this include listening walks, sound lotto games, investigatimg musical instruments, clapping syllables in words and talking like a robot.

You can upload comments and you can also upload your own pictures of things that you have done as a family. If you are not signed up then just ask and we can get you a letter. 

NURSERY TEACHING AND LEARNING

Welcome back to nursery after the February half term. Hope you had a lovely and relaxing break. Hopefully the children will be able to share with us what they did with their families. During the second half of the spring term we will be learning about People who help us. We will read some non-fiction books, look at videos on the computer and we will also do some art work based around this topic. We will also learn about Mother's Day and the Easter Story as well as doing some craft activities linked to these areas of learning.

If we get any nice weather, then we will go outside on the trim trail or the tyres. We ask that the children have a pair of black PE pumps that can be kept in school. Please send these into school if you haven't done so already. Please make sure your child's pumps are clearly labelled with their name.  

We will also get to play outdoors where the children can climb on the climbing frames, use the slide, explore the musical instruments, push prams, ride on bikes and much more. 

Please make sure you send a pair of wellies into school as we will need these if the weather is very wet. Please make sure they are clearly labelled with your child's name.
