Welcome to Nursery!
Let all that you do be done in love
1 Corinthians 16:14
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework in Nursery, and we develop our skills through a play-based curriculum. We encourage the children to express their interests and fascinations, and support them in their learning through these - ensuring the children love to learn and learn to love. Please click on the video below to find out more about how we learn in Nursery.
In Nursery we learn outdoors every day. Please send your child in appropriate clothes for the weather, wellington boots and raincoats on rainy days, hats, scarves and gloves on cold days, and sun hats on sunny days. We love our river bed water feature, a change of clothes in a bag for if your child gets wet is very helpful.
You can help your child to achieve their best and enjoy their learning by;
- talking with your child about what they have done at school.
- encouraging them to be independent, by putting on and taking off their own uniform when getting dressed.
- reading and talking about books.
- singing songs and rhymes together.
- helping them to recognise their name.
- counting objects up to 5 and then 10. Spotting and recognising numerals, shapes and patterns around them.
- trying new activities and challenges with them, encouraging them to show perseverance through trying and trying again.
Thank you for your support
