Sep 2015 - Oct 2015
The decision was made to change the organisation of the Nursery, with only morning sessions being offered. Due to the numbers of children involved it was necessary to have two Teaching Assistants supporting the Nursery Teacher. We have welcomed a new member of staff, Mrs Fairhurst, to join our Early Years Team.
The children have settled quickly and are busy learning “All about Me”. At the start of each session the children take part in a ‘busy fingers’ activity to encourage fine motor development. The children take part in daily maths and phonics activities. The children can choose a library book every Friday to take home and share with their parents/carers.
The initial focus is to ensure the children all settle well and establish routines and rules to establish a firm foundation for the rest of their learning.
We are hoping to create more transition opportunities with Reception including a joint Nativity performance at Christmas.
