In Nursery we are active learners and over the autumn term we will be supporting your child to settle into their new environment and routine, as well as introducing them to their learning. Your child will be given many opportunities to develop their critical thinking, explore their own skills and actively learn. This will continue throughout their time in Nursery.
Our Nursery sessions run each morning from 8:45am-11:45am and each afternoon session from 12:30pm-3:30pm. We operate an open door policy, so please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Nursery team if you have any questions or messages.
This term will be dedicated to ‘getting to know each other’ for the children, parents and teachers.
The theme this half term is
‘Tell Us a Story!’
We then move on to ‘Humpty and Friends’
We, of course, will also be celebrating some cultural events such as Diwali and Christmas.
Through stories and play opportunities we will concentrate on building relationships and developing a sense of belonging for the children in their new environment. The children will be able to get used to their new routine and will be encouraged to develop and expand their language skills in a variety of situations, both formal and informal, when playing and during structured games and activities. This will be within the classroom and outdoor environments.
Throughout their first term in nursery, we will be encouraging your child to become more independent and confident with using the environment around them, e.g. going to the toilet, putting on their coat, choosing an activity.
As part of each school day is spent outdoors, we would appreciate it if your child brought a suitable coat every day to wear for outdoor activities (wellingtons for wet weather).
In the coming weeks as we get to know your children, we will be assigning each child a Key Worker. We will let you know as soon as possible who your child’s Key Worker will be.
If you do have any queries or concerns regarding your child, please do not hesitate in contacting us. We look forward to a fun-filled year of learning with you and your child.
