Welcome to Class 1
Welcome to Class 1
In our busy class we have nursery and reception children playing and working together throughout the school day. All children have opportunities to choose their own learning and follow their own individual interests. Key skills are taught through continuous provision and adult-led activities. We aim to promote play and exploration, enhance knowledge, skills, confidence and resilience, and develop ideas and strategies, to support our children on their journey to becoming independent happy learners!
We encourage our children to become involved when choosing topics for the children to study. We follow the children’s interests closely and we adapt learning experiences and resources to meet their needs in the prime and specific areas of learning (Communication and Language Development, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design).
Starting Nursery or school is an exciting time for our youngest children and we aim to provide a safe and nurturing space for all our children to play and learn together, co-operating and sharing. They learn about how to be true to themselves and respecting the rights of others. By building positive relationships children learn to become resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. All children learn and develop at different rates. The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework covers the education and care of all children in early year’s provision, including children with educational needs and disabilities
Parents are essential partners in their children's early learning. Both home and school can each do a great deal to support children. We aim to work co-operatively together in a respectful partnership encouraging our children to grow up happy, healthy, curious and ready for the next challenge!. Once the children have settled we will be sending home little activities and tasks to complete with an adult. Phonics, number work reading activities and additional games. We aim to send home activities once a week usually on a Friday to be returned the follwing Friday. There will be weekly PE sessions on a Wednesday and a Thursday children will need a PE kit in school. Please send your child into school with their own water bottle containing water not sugary drinks. Children will also need wellington boots in school and slippers to change into. All items of clothing must be clearly labelled. Lunches and snack can be orderd using school Spider. Fresh fruit is available each day. We encourage healthy eating all all times.
