In Nursery we have Miss Starkey who is our Teacher and Mrs Andrews and Miss Taylor who are our Teaching Assistants.
We would like firstly to welcome all our new children and parents to the Nursery this Spring Term. We also would like to introduce a new member of staff who has joined our Team, Miss Taylor, she will remain with us for the rest of the year to support your children.
In the Foundation Curriculum we get to know our children and follow their interests to ensure their learning experiences are stimulating and engaging.
This term we have started to introduce ‘in the moment planning’ most of the activities will be child initiated where the adults then use "teachable moments" through the child's play. This unique way allows us to develop each child at their own individual pace working with their interests. This also allows us to steer the child’s play into which objectives we wish to be assessing the child on. We also use adult led activities so that all areas of the EYFS are covered, such as investigating the world where we are going to be looking at Chinese New Year, St Davids Day, Pancake Day and Mothering Sunday.
We are also developing our outside area to bring in new opportunities for the children where they will be able to access, explore and investigating in the sand pit, mud kitchen, water wall, woodwork area, and use of different loose parts for construction.
The children have really enjoyed going up to Forest School last term. We will be carrying this on in spring term. If your children have any wellies at home we would really appreciate it if you could bring them into school to be left for them to use.
Please make sure that when your child comes to Nursery that they are not in their best clothes, we do try to make sure that they stay clean and wear aprons but we want them explore and have fun.
Please could your child also have spare change of clothes including pants and socks in their bag and always bring a coat.
Please ensure that they contain just plain Water, if your child prefers squash or juice they may have this in their packed lunch.
