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.
The children in Reception have had a fantastic first few weeks of school.
We have played in the sand, water and the mud too! We love playing inside and outside. Reception have also started learning sounds which we call "Phonics" - this is different from learning the names of the letters.
We follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme.
We love the songs and the actions as well. There will be more information about phonics coming to parents soon!
We are learning all day long! Our main focus this half term is learning how we can get on with others, taking turns and being patient.
We are trying hard to ask our friends when it is our turn and say, "How long until my turn?" We use sand-timers to help us wait 1 or 2 minutes. This helps give us an idea of time as we learn to deal with turn taking on our own. We are trying so hard!
