Welcome to our Nursery! We are America Class, Canada Class and Mexico Class (wrap-around).
Our Nursery is divided into three classes; America Class are our morning session children, Canada Class are our afternoon session children and Mexico Class our 'Wrap-Around Care' children who join both sessions.
We have a wonderful group of children in all classes who are determined, inquisitive and eager to learn! They have all settled in brilliantly - including our new starters, which have made all of the teachers very proud!
Nursery children will be covering a range of topics over the year including; Dinosaurs, Mini-beasts, Outer Space, and Being Active. We try to link our learning through the use of 'Big Books', songs and interactive table activities which the children can explore throughout their sessions.
We teach phonics daily and focus on one sound a day - the children are really enjoying this lesson and look forward to seeing what's inside our 'sound box'!
Mathematics is also an integral part of our day - we focus on counting forwards and backwards to 20 and beyond everyday. Children also focus on a 'number of the day' which we practice writing in air and encourage the use of when independently playing and exploring.
We also offer interventions for handwriting and number formation as well as our special group to focus on Personal, Social, and Emotional Development - a very important aspect for Nursery children! This group in particular is something which the children very much look forward to.
We have some amazing little people in our Nursery who are all working hard and keeping busy! Do come and visit us to see our amazing work!
