First we would like to say a big "Welcome back" to all our children and to our new starters! We are very excited to welcome you into our school family and are looking forward to sharing special times with you all.
This half term we shall be focusing on the topics of ‘My Colourful World.’ The Festivals of Bon-Fire Night and Christmas shall be studied this half term and children will be given creative and purposeful opportunities to learn new skills.
Our ‘Come and See’ topics will be ‘Welcome’ which will focus on the sacrament of baptism and ‘Birthday’ which will lead us onto Advent and Christmas which is Jesus’ birthday.
These topics will act as vehicle to drive learning through the curriculum. In addition to this we will be ensuring that the children's own interest are followed and planned for in order to make learning purposeful and exciting for individuals.
The EYFS Curriculum is a play based curriculum which provides rich and creative learning opportunities for all children. Initially there is a focus on the 'Prime' areas of learning and development (Communication, and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development) to ensure that children are given a strong and sturdy starting point. This is followed by 'Specific' areas of learning and development (Literacy, mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and design).
Nursery children shall also be starting to learn phonics (sounds) as part of our focus on early reading. We will be experimenting with environmental sounds and singing lots of songs and rhymes.
We do hope that your child enjoys their experience with us, and are more than willing to listen to any suggestions or ideas that you have for promoting learning.
Thank you for your ongoing support
The Nursery Team
