Mrs Clarke and Mrs Ward are looking forward to welcoming you to join us for a happy Nursery year, with lots of playing, learning and exciting challenges ahead. We have a happy and busy Nursery where we enjoy lots of fun activities and share in planned and purposeful play opportunities.
All children access the seven Areas of Learning through carefully planned provision in our indoor and outdoor environments and their progress is recorded in their Learning Journals to which parents have the opportunity to add their own “Parent Voice”.
In Nursery, our young learners will start their journey towards going to school, making friends, learning to share and play together, growing in confidence and becoming more independent at lunch times and throughout the day.
Through the Nursery year we will be supporting and developing a range of skills.
· Managing our emotions and behaviour
· Sharing, playing and exploring our familiar world and beyond
· Becoming curious and active learners
· Developing skills in becoming creative and critical thinkers
· Thinking about others, being kind and considerate
· Using good manners
· Listening to and learning to follow instructions
· Using classroom learning equipment safely
· Becoming more independent in the self -help skills of dressing and personal care
· Developing confidence in trying new activities
· Developing listening and spoken language skills
· Understanding and using an increasingly rich and widening vocabulary
· Following classroom rules and routines
· Strengthening gross and fine motor skills for strength and co-ordination
· Developing a sense of awe and wonder
· Understanding that print carries meaning
· Writing our name and giving meaning to our marks
· Developing a range of pre-reading and writing skills
· Developing early number skills and confidently applying them to everyday situations
· Growing in confidence in sharing their creativity
· Developing skills and knowledge across all Areas of Learning through our topics:-

We also consider the children’s own curiosities and interests and ensure flexibility in our planning and provision to support these as far as possible.
To promote and encourage our young learners to develop a lifelong love of reading, we share and enjoy a wide range of quality books, poems, rhymes and stories daily.
Across the year as well as using books and stories to support our topics, our focus texts are Nursery Rhymes, The Christmas Story, Little Red Riding Hood, The Gingerbread Man, Jack and the Beanstalk and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
