Hello and welcome to Nursery! We have two classes that work together across the Nursery Unit to have fun, learn and explore the world around us. We learn by delivering a challenging, play based EYFS curriculum.
The school day In Nursery
Our doors open at 8.50am and close at 9.00am. Please make sure you arrive on time to ensure your child is not missing out on valuable learning. We have lunch at 11.25am where your child can bring a packed lunch or have a school dinner (to be paid for at the school office). The Nursery school day ends at 3.15pm, please be prompt as your children will be very excited to see you and tell you all about their day.
‘Our Learning this week’
Each week you will be given a copy of ‘Our Learning this week’ along with your child’s homework. Take time to look through this with your child over the weekend so they are aware of the new things they can do the following week. Talk to them about what they would like to play with and where they would like to learn so they are ready and excited on Monday morning!
Homework will be handed out on a Friday and needs to be returned to your child’s teacher the following Wednesday.
Clothes – At Nursery children love messy play – especially the water! This means that your child may need to change their clothes throughout the day. Please can you make sure your child has a spare set of uniform in their tray in case of any emergencies.
As the weather is beginning to get very wet, please ensure you child has brought a pair of named wellies to school and a waterproof coat with a hood. This means we can still enjoy playing outside even when it’s raining!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask one of the Nursery staff.
At Nursery we love to play. “I feel all wriggly and happy” at Nursery. We can run, climb, build, paint, play with play dough, eat dinner in the home corner. There are lots of toys to play with. The teachers help us to learn when we play with them.
I love to see children’s excitement whilst they are learning in Nursery. I can’t wait to see the look on their faces when they realise they can do something that they couldn’t do before.
I love getting to know each child and what they enjoy playing with. I especially like developing the classroom to draw out their individual likes and seeing where the children’s imagination takes us.
I like to see the look on the children’s faces when they have learned something new.
I enjoy the creative, making activities to enhance the outdoor area.
