Welcome to our class web page. Please check back to see some of the lovely experiences that your child will be having in our setting over the course of the year.
Morning Nursery is 8.30am to 11.30am.
Afternoon Nursery is 12.30pm to 3.30pm.
To celebrate children’s birthdays, they can come to school wearing their own clothes.
In Nursery, we aim to make each child’s first experience of school warm, homely and nurturing; and a place in which their individual talents and interests are celebrated and extended, to encourage high quality learning. Staff actively, support children in their play and this forms the basis of our curriculum. By supporting play, we are more finely tuned into a child’s development and are able to take learning forward in a way that will captivate the child. We plan so that learning and development are implemented through purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities. We are led by the needs and interests of our children.
Book bags play a vital role in maintaining home school links. Please check the bag each night and bring it into school each day. We provide each child with a Green Planner. This contains key dates from our school calendar, tips and advice, engaging activities to do with your child and a reading record for you to complete when you read at home. You can also write messages to your class teacher in the planner, and we can write messages to you. Green Planners are checked daily and therefore must come into school every day.
Nursery library day is on a Wednesday. Your child will have the opportunity to choose a book to share with you at home, please return the following week.
Homework will be sent home via Tapestry. The task will be a consolidation of recent learning. Please record your work in a creative practical way and upload it to Tapestry.
We will have PE in Nursery and a PE kit will be needed. This includes green shorts, a white t-shirt and black pumps. Black joggers and a black jumper can also be worn over their PE t-shirt.
Morning Nursery PE day is on Thursday and afternoon Nursey is Friday. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit.
Nursery Curriculum Maps
In Nursery we learn through play and believe that outdoors should be as much a part of a child’s learning environment as the indoor environment. When children explore the outdoors they learn from first-hand experiences, they will challenge themselves, become successful learners and develop into healthy, confident children. We go outside in all weathers so children will need a pair of named wellington boots to be kept in Nursery and an outdoor coat to be brought in daily. We will provide wet suits.
