Nursery

Welcome to the Nursery. We feel privileged to be sharing your child’s first experiences of school life. This is a time for new beginnings, making friends and learning lots of new and exciting things each and every day. Our days will be filled with lots of wonderful experiences and opportunities for learning and growing. To keep you fully informed of your child’s experiences in school, you will receive a termly curriculum leaflet and a weekly ‘Dear Parent’ letter is posted onto the News/Events page on this website.

We like to learn in Foundation Stage One

We learn in the following areas:

Religious Education

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Communication and Language

Physical Development

Literacy - Reading/Writing/Phonics

Mathematics

Understanding The World

Expressive Arts and Design

Throughout the curriculum areas the children are encouraged to play and explore, solve problems, be creative and think critically. Children are active in their learning and are given opportunities to take risks and develop resilience.  

 

Please select the link for our Summer Term Curriculum Leaflet. This leaflet will inform you about your child's learning this term. During this period where the children are learning at home, you may find this useful. I will be putting a weekly activity grid onto the school website for the Nursery parents/carers to access. The activities will be planned around a weekly theme. It is not an expectation that every activity is completed. This is just to support you as much as possible during this difficult time. Please ensure that your child has opportunities to read and complete his/her phonics activities.

If you can, please upload any pictures of your child’s learning onto Tapestry.

Thank you for your support.
