STAR OF THE WEEK
Nursery are now participating in the Star of the Week Award. Each Friday we choose one pupil from each of the Morning and Afternoon sessions who we feel most deserve this award. They will receive one of Mr Gibbon's special sticker rewards presented at the end of their Nursery session.
STARS OF THE WEEK for week beginning 8th January: Jenson(Morning nursery) and Amelia-Dee
(Afternoon nursery). Well done!
Happy New Year!
We started our half-term by thinking about Winter. We have been exploring snow and ice and finding out how we can stay safe and warm in Winter.
For the rest of the half term, we are going to be looking at Nursery Rhymes. What is your favourite rhyme?
Don't forget to check in the home group areas for your children's
targets. These are changed regularly when your child achieves his/her next steps and their achievement is celebrated on the Wow! Boards.
Remember to change your Bedtime Book every day. We have lots of brilliant stories to choose from.
WHAT DO WE TEACH YOUR CHILD?
Children within the Foundation Stage follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). There are seven areas of learning. These are;
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Making relationships, self-confidence and awareness, managing feelings and behaviour.
Moving and handling, health and self-care
Communication and Language
Listening and attention, Understanding, Speaking
Numbers, shape, space and measures
Understanding the World
People and communities, the world, technology
Expressive Arts and Design
Exploring and using media and materials
Staff make observations of the children’s interests and enjoyments and plan themes and daily activities around their interests.
