Welcome to Nursery
Meet the Staff in Nursery
Mrs Crossley (previously Miss Bingham)
Please ensure your child brings spare clothes to school to keep on their peg. These may be needed for a number of reasons including messy play and accidents.
Please keep up to date with everything that is happening in Nursery on this page and on Class Dojo. If you need to speak to one of the Nursery members of staff feel free to do so at the start or end of the day.
What and how do we learn in Nursery?
In Nursery we are encouraged to explore, create, be curious, messy and have fun. Through all of this, we learn!
All of our learning is focused on the 'Characteristics of Effective Learning'; Playing and Exploring, Active Learning and Creating and Thinking Critically. Our classrooms and outdoor area are set up to enhance your child's learning and development of skills in these areas.
In Nursery your child tells us what they love and we teach them all about it! We also base our projects on the experiences and skills that we know the children need to learn about from our regular assessments. We like to ensure your child loves to learn and the way to do that is to learn about what they love. We use our knowledge of the children and observations of their learning to create lots of exciting and practical learning opportunities around their ideas and Characteristics of Effective Learning.
