Thank you for visiting our class page. My name is Mrs Foy and I am the Nursery teacher and Miss Enticott is the Early Years practitioner. We love working as a team with the Nursery children and the other staff and children in Reception. We are an Early Years Foundation Stage Unit which means that children from 3 to 5 years old play and learn together. It is like a happy family in school, with the older children supporting the younger ones and modelling good learning behaviour.
Nursery staff believe that it is very important to inspire young children and support them in their adventures in the world and in learning. We hope to instill a love of learning at the very start of a child's journey in education. We regularly welcome in parents to share ways to support their child's development and learning. We have weekly Welly Time sessions to help children to have mini adventures and believe going on trips outside of class is vital to give children a wider, shared experience of the world.
In Nursery we love to learn. We do this in different ways. When the year begins we do lots of learning through play and the staff listen to and support our learning conversations. We do have some adult led learning time throughout the day, where we learn to sit nicely, listen to each other and to the adults. We try hard not to interrupt or shout out but be respectful of each other. We have high expectations of ourselves and always put our best effort into our learning.
Learning to work and play with others is a vital part of each day and we also learn ways to regulate our emotions and manage the emotional challenges that we meet.
Please keep a close eye on our Dojo page (only open to family members) to see what Nursery have been up to in school. We will update the website page at the end of each half term.
