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.

NURSERY TEACHING AND LEARNING

Welcome to nursery. Hope you had a lovely summer and you managed to get away or go on some great day trips.  During the first half term the children will be given time to settle in, get to know the rules and routines and most importantly make some new friends. We will start off by reading a variety of traditional tales and doing lots of activities based around these. We have started reading 'Goldilocks and the three bears'. We have watched two different versions of the story on the computer and we have also learnt the Goldilocks song. We will continue to do some more activities based on this story and we might even have some porridge!!

PE AND OUTDOOR PLAY

During the Autumn term we will introduce the children to the hall for our PE sessions. We will do a mixture of sticky kids, games and small apparatus. We ask that the children have a pair of black PE pumps that can be kept in school. 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, pushing 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.
