When your child joins our nursery they will receive all the care and attention they need to ensure that the first time your child separates from you is positive. Our nursery is caring and well-trained staff will help make sure the whole process is positive. Mrs Boden, Miss Tune and Mrs Heath are the Key Workers within the Nursery with Miss Ryan (Reception class teacher and Early Years lead teacher) supporting the Nursery. We keep our Key Worker groups small to ensure quality interactions and learning.
Our Nursery aims to provide a stimulating, caring and nurturing environment which meets each child’s needs as an individual. We will endeavor to offer a collection of unique experiences using both the outdoors and indoors as a positive learning environment. The Nursery offers an environment for children to learn through play. Children at this stage are now eagerly seeking information about all exciting aspects of their rapidly expanding world. They learn from their experiences which teach them to try out new things, ask questions and experience many new learning opportunities.
Our curriculum is planned, delivered and evaluated to ensure that the children receive broad-based experiences in line with the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum. The children are observed in a relaxed way to ensure that the curriculum planned for them builds on the skills that your child already possesses. The classroom has the following areas: writing, creative, role play, construction, small world, investigation, reading, Technology, finger gym, phonics, sand and water play and play dough. We also have an outdoor area where we can build, investigate, run, ride bikes, dig and perform. We have a mud kitchen, water wall and investigation station too.
We make the most of our surroundings and will go on regular walks to the library, the Queens gardens and local parks. (Permission letters will be sent in due course) We love to grow fruit and vegetables in our small garden area. We will provide puddle suits and ponchos but please send in coats, hats, gloves or sun hats dependent on the weather.
Our Nursery Curriculum is organised around half-termly topics which provide the children with the opportunity to engage in a wide range of activities to develop their skills and experience. We are completely flexible and we will alter topics based on the children’s interest’s and or needs.
In Nursery we us Evidence Me, an online ’learning journey', together we will build a beautifully informative document that will journal your child's time and learning within the nursery year. Staff and children will add to the App regularly and parents can sent postcards of their childs' home learning via Evidence Me. . We hope that parents will also join us in contributing to this. We will send out details of how you can get involved. There will be plenty of opportunities to view your child's learning journey throughout the year. Throughout the year we will have lots of opportunities to be involved with the school and your child’s learning too as we cherish and value the importance of home school links.
PE takes place twice a week for the Nursery class. We have found that the nursery children enjoy having specialist sports coaches and enjoy the range of activities that are provided.
