Nursery Key Information
School starts at 8.50am.
As soon as the children come into class our work begins. Please make sure they arrive on time, so they are not missing out on valuable learning time.
It is an expectation that children are read to at home. 5 minutes a day can make such a massive difference to their development and their confidence.
The children bring home a reading book. You are not expected to read a whole book every time - a couple of pages regularly is fine. Once this is returned to school, the book will then be changed. If a book is lost, then there will be a £5 charge.
In nursery, we follow a thematic curriculum that encapsulates the entirety of the EYFS Framework 2021. To see what learning we are doing this term, click on the blue bars below.
Specific areas of learning
Prime areas of learning
Nursery will have PE on Thursdays every other half term. They do not require a PE kit.
In EYFS, we use an incredible online learning journey called Tapestry. In class, we use Tapestry to record and track your child’s learning. Please download the app so you can contribute and be directly involved with your child’s learning! If you need help to login, please see a member of the EYFS team.
