Welcome to Nursery!
I hope you are all managing to stay safe during this difficult time.
Over the next few weeks I will be continuing to update this page with suggested activities and website links that will help support learning at home.
See you all soon.
Not only will reading a story keep your child entertained, it will also stimulate their minds and help them to develop their early literacy skills.
Grab some old magazines and newspapers and recycle them into something amazing. Your child could also develop their scissor skills by cutting out pictures of their favourite toys/food etc...
Set up a cleanable work area and let their imaginations run wild. Then allow your child to talk about what they have created, this will help to develop their language skills.
Build a den
Grab cushions, pillows, blankets, boxes etc to build the den. Encourage your child to design their den first.
Grab a cereal box, some cardboard tubes and elastic bands to create a guitar. Or some dried pasta or rice and an empty container to make a maraca/shaker. Then use these homemade instruments whilst singing your child's favourite nursery rhyme. Can the children use their instruments in different ways...loudly, quietly, fast, slow etc...
Baking is a great way to teach them about what goes into their food and it introduces them to numbers and units of measure.
Take pictures of some of the fun things that you are doing with your child and add them Tapestry.

If you would like to speak to a member of staff please feel free to do so before or after the Nursery session. Alternatively please ring the school office and a member of staff will return your call.
Our Nursery times are below:
Morning Session: 8.50am-11.50am
Afternoon Session: 12.00pm -3.00pm
ONLINE LEARNING JOURNEYS
Your child's progress in school is recorded on an online learning journey (Tapestry) which you can access at home.
Name labels in clothing
Please put your child's name in every item of clothing. Many children often have identical items of clothing and without names it is virtually impossible to get them back to their rightful owners.
As part of the Nursery class your child will spend a large quantity of time outside regardless of the weather, therefore could you please ensure that they have a pair of wellington boots in school at all times. Please make sure your child's name is written inside them.
Please can we ask that you send in a bag of spare clothes into Nursery to keep on your child's peg in case of any accidents. In this bag could we ask that you include; underwear, socks/ tights, skirts/joggers , tshirts and jumpers. Again please ensure that you label every item of clothing and the bag with your child's name.
Our Early Years curriculum is carefully planned to make sure that all children thrive and achieve. There are seven areas of learning and development that must be covered in Early Years settings. Three areas are particularly crucial for building their capacity to learn. These areas, the prime areas, are:
Personal, Social and emotional development; Communication and Language and Physical development.
There are four specific areas that providers must also be taught to support children. These specific areas are:
Mathematics; Literacy; Expressive arts and design and Understanding the World.
We aim to support each child to identify their own sense of identity and self - worth, as well as focusing on each and every child’s individual needs and interests
