Nursery is all about learning whilst playing and having fun! The children are encouraged to find out new things by exploring the world around them and asking questions. Nursery is a safe, friendly place where children feel happy to take risks and engage in new experiences. All staff strive to build strong relationships with their key children so that they flourish in our setting. Children are supported to become "confident communicators" so that they can express themselves effectively to others. Nursery is a wonderful place to be - please check our page each week to share in our achievements, see what we have been learning about in school and find out ways that you can support learning at home!
Each half term in Nursery we will be introducing children to our 'Favourite Five' stories. We will read these five stories lots of times throughout the half term (alongside lots of others as well) so that the children become really familiar with the language and pattern of the story. By reading these 5 stories regularly, children are exposed to lots of new vocabulary. Our 'Grandpa Fantastic' collects all of the new vocabulary that we have learnt from each story. We revisit this new vocabulary frequently to support children to absorb the language and explore it in a wider context.
Our 'Favourite Five' for Autumn 1 half term are:
