Welcome to the Nursery

Hello!   ಹಲೋ!   ഹലോ!   Dzień dobry!  Olá!   ਸਤ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ ! 

Autumn Term

How exciting! The start of a very special year for you and your children as they start their pre-school year with so many opportunities to make new friends and learn new routines and skills. Our focus for the first half-term will be on the prime areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum: Communication and Language, Physical Development and in particular Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Learning in these areas are vital as they support and scaffold learning in the specific areas of the curriculum (Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design).

We will be supporting and encouraging your children to listen to each other, to take turns and to share. We will also be developing their self-help skills- washing hands, toileting, putting on/ taking off shoes, wellingtons, coats and aprons! Time will also be spent showing your children the different areas of the Nursery and how to use them, for instance putting on an apron when using the creative area or how to use pens in the mark-making area (only write on paper and always put the lid back on).


To get an over-view of the learning taking place across the year, you can look at Nursery’s Long Term Plan in the Key Information Section below.
