All of our learning in Nursery is underpinned by the EYFS and Development Matters statements to ensure that your child is being taught progressively and in line with the most up to date and relevant documentation. We also use the phonic teaching programmes 'Jolly phonics' and 'Letters and Sounds'. Phase One of this programme is aimed specifically at Nursery children and concentrates on developing speaking and listening skills, rhyming, segmenting and blending.
In Nursery we have FUN! We start each week with a new story to spark imagination and a love of learning. The imagination and adventure that a book can spark is at the very heart of our learning. Each half term also involves a 'wow moment' so that our children are excited to learn and are each involved in the 'magic' of our Nursery curriculum.
We aim for our teaching and provision to be as cross curricular and open ended as possible. We believe that learning can take place anywhere, and we access provision both indoors and outdoors every day, no matter the weather - puddles are there for splashing in - but only in your wellies!
We love for our Nursery parents to be as involved as possible. Please take as many speech bubbles as you would like from the Nursery entrance, in order to share your proud moments on our parents as partners board. We have an email address that you can also send your wow moments to: firstname.lastname@example.org
. Our twitter page is regularly updated so please take a look to see what we have been up to! Each half term we also send home a 'home learning challenge' which is a fun task that we set for you to complete with your child, we love seeing what you produce together.
We use a range of methods to observe children in Nursery to ensure that our assessments are as accurate as possible. One of these methods is called 'EAZMAGS' which allows us to capture those priceless memories in the form of photographs, linking each one to the EYFS statements. You can access this at home using your parent login.
In our Nursery we are investigators, we are friends, we are important and we are proud of our achievements, everyday!
