Welcome to the Nursery

Hello! Olá! Namaste! Czesc! Namaskaram! Ciao!

We have not one but three classroom areas which (in the words of Ofsted) are "well resourced, bright and stimulating": our indoor classroom, our outdoor classroom and our garden area. In addition we have access to the school's field and hall where we have lots of fun playing games, doing dance, drama or gymnastics. Once a week, Mr Bromley teaches PE for us.
Mrs Armstrong is the nursery teacher and Mrs Ayley is the Senior Early Years Educator. We  work hard, in partnership with parents, to make sure that every child feels happy and safe in nursery; then they are ready to learn!

All nursery learning takes place through play-based activities, sometimes adult led and sometimes child-initiated. The activities are based on the needs and interests of each child and planned using the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Each week we have a special theme or story- you can find out more in our weekly newsletter ( see documents below). Recent photos can also be viewed in the documents below.

 

Spring Term This term our activities will link to traditional fairy tales such as The enormous turnip and Goldilocks and the three bears which will allow us to develop all areas of the curriculum including literacy (reading & re-telling the stories), numeracy ( matching and counting the 3 bearsbowls etc) and knowledge & understanding of the world (for instance planting seeds and watching them grow). We will also observe seasonal festivals (including Epiphany, Chinese New Year and Shrove Tuesday) and seasonal changes- we hope its snows! Later in the term, we will be looking for signs of spring. In RE we will be learning about Baptism and Lent.
