Nursery

Happy Diwali from Nursery (Please watch our video on the 'Video Resource Centre'...)

Welcome to Nursery

 

‘We care, we share & play fairly with others’

 

Nursery Staff

 

The nursery is led by Mrs Fincham and is supported by Ms Oakes and Mrs Akther.

 

They are a creative team and work very hard to provide a stimulating environment in which every child gains confidence and enthusiasm for learning. We have listed some important information for new parents here, but please feel free to come in and talk to us should you have any questions at all.

 

Behaviour

 

We encourage positive behaviour by modelling good manners and praising the children when good behaviour is demonstrated. The children also receive house points, stickers and certificates. We encourage all children to recognise and think about how their behaviour has affected themselves and others throughout the year.

 

Curriculum

 

The Nursery maintains a well planned inside and outdoor environment enabling children to learn through meaningful play experiences. A play based curriculum is a natural way for young children to learn and it is the majority of children’s interests that reflect upon our planning. The children are also engaged in small or whole group teacher led activities daily.

 

The curriculum is broken down into three prime areas, which encompass all learning activities in the Early Years:

 

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development– Making relationships, building confidence and managing feelings and behaviour.
  • Communication and Language– Learning to speak, listen, understand, and express themselves.
  • Physical Development– Learning to look after their bodies, and everything they can do. From holding a pencil, to standing on one leg!

 

In addition to the Prime Areas, there are four specific areas – Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design – which the children access through various activities and self-initiated learning.

 

By the end of the year, the children will have developed a range of skills and knowledge, and the ability to learn independently.

For further information about the Early Years curriculum please visit the government website at: https://www.gov.uk/early-years-foundation-stage.
