Welcome to our Nursery page! Our staff team consists of Mrs Gladwin and Mrs Nathan (Class Teachers) and three experienced Nursery Nurses: Miss Driver, Mrs Nelson and Miss Field.
Nursery is a really exciting first step into the school community and we extend a warm welcome to you all. We look forward to working in partnership with you throughout the year and value the important role you play in your child’s learning.
In the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) the children learn through a stimulating play-based curriculum and have daily opportunities to free flow between the indoor and outdoor environment. During our sessions we also provide opportunities for adult-led, group and whole class activities as well as child-initiated learning.
The Early Years curriculum consists of 7 different areas:
· personal, social and emotional development
· communication and language
· physical development
· understanding the world
· expressive arts and design
The activities and resources on offer around the Nursery will support and encourage learning in these areas. Your child’s learning will then be recorded through observations, which are uploaded onto a secure website called Tapestry. These are then available for you to see and comment on, once a password has been set up.
