WELCOME TO NURSERY
Our nursery is a fun and exciting place to be. We have lots of space both indoors and outdoors for the children to explore.
There are 7 areas of learning that we look at in Nursery. These are Personal, Social and Emotional; Physical; Communication and Language; Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World; and Expressive Arts and Design.
The majority of the children’s learning takes place through continuous provision activities and play, with the children learning from the experiences they have. However, Phonics, Maths, and JIGSAW are specifically taught as independent activities each day. Within class we have lots of story times as exposure to stories stretches children’s vocabularies, expands their horizons, increases their imagination, and extends their ability to learn.
We enjoy following the children’s interests, as these can lead us on amazing journeys and exciting adventures. We will share these with you through our online learning journal – Tapestry.
Tapestry also allows us to communicate effectively with you; and we love it when you share what the children have been up to with you at home on it.
P.E. in Nursery is done through continuous provision and play. There is no need for a separate P.E. kit. However, the children have access to the outdoor areas continuously throughout all weather conditions, so waterproofs and wellington boots are essential.
We believe that what children experience in nursery creates strong long lasting impressions, which the children take with them into the rest of their school lives. It is our aim to make these experiences the best they can possibly be!
If you have any questions please come and talk to the Nursery Team, we are happy to try and help.
