What we do at nursery
Our aim is to provide an inclusive, stimulating and nurturing learning environment with happy and engaged children who make outstanding progress. To achieve this, we provide all children with age-appropriate play and learning opportunities in a carefully planned indoor and outdoor environment through a rich and varied curriculum where the diversity of individuals and communities is valued and celebrated. We place a high value on child initiated play as we believe that young children learn when they are deeply engrossed in something that fascinates and challenges them.
Our Christmas Show
At Nursery we have been learning the about Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have read the story, learned a song, turned our role-play area into the 3 bears’ house and acted out the story. We performed a Christmas Show for the parents and carers that included some of the children acting out the Goldilocks play and all of the children taking part in a range of action songs on the stage. We all had a great time sharing our learning and performing for our family and friends.
We do yoga every week in nursery. We develop our balance and coordination skills. It also helps us to relax and regulate our emotions.
Science Week 2018
Children's Author Visit
Children’s author Petr Horacek came to visit us at nursery. A New House for Mouse, Greedy Goat and Blue Penguin are just a few of his books. He told us all about how he wrote his stories and where he got his ideas from. He drew lots of characters from his fantastic books and then read us some of them. The children loved this special treat!
This term a musician came into nursery to complete music and singing sessions with parents and children. He had a didgeridoo, accordion and plenty of percussion instruments for us all to try.
