 Hello and welcome to Nursery!

In Nursery we teach and learn through the children's interests. Each day we have a teaching session which focuses on areas of learning such as Communication and Language, Maths or Personal, Social and Emotional Development.  We also sing our nursery Rhyme of the Week, practise focus numbers, shapes and sounds or share a story.  The children enjoy our daily gross motor exercise session to music.  We also learn to retell stories with our Talk for Writing story each day.  The rest of the time is spent playing inside and outside.  Children may take part in some individual and small group learning during their morning or afternoon sessions.  Activities and resources are based around the children's interests with adults supporting and developing learning through play.


We use an online learning journal known as 'Target Tracker' which gives you a snapshot of what your child has been learning and which you can view on your phone, tablet or PC.   If you are yet to access Target Tracker please speak to a member of staff who will be able to help you on this matter.  If you don't have access to the internet you are more than welcome to pop in to Nursery where we can show you your child's Target Tracker journal and what your child has been learning.


As the weather gets warmer we are noticing that very few jumpers and cardigans have got names on them.  Named items are much more likely to be returned to the right child.
