Welcome to Nursery!
Both Nursery and Reception work closely together as a unit where we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We are able to access both indoor and outdoor environments and enjoy playing and learning together.
Currently we are talking about ourselves, our families and our interests as part of our settling in topic – 'All about me'. We will continue through the year to look at broad themes and topics, including the seasons and celebrations, to name but a few. In these topics we will aim to follow the children’s interests and ideas, and this may lead us into other mini-topics so be sure to ask your child, check our learning journey wall and pop back to our page to see our most current learning.
- Nursery starts at 8:45.
- In Early Years outdoor learning is incredibly important for our children and we do go outside in sun, rain and snow. Please ensure your child has appropriate footwear and a waterproof coat in Nursery, as well as gloves, a scarf and a hat as the weather gets colder.
- We also do a lot of messy play and active learning and, although we do our best to stay clean, we recommend that your child wears school uniform or items you don’t mind getting a little dirty, as this will enable the children to fully participate in their learning. Please also label all belongings to help avoid confusion.
- Our parents' notice board (next to EYFS door) will be kept up to date with all relevant information. However if you need to speak to us regarding anything at all please feel free – we are partners in your child’s learning and communication is key to them getting the most out of Nursery.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to a fantastic year!
