Hello and welcome to Nursery,
My name is Mrs. Hurley and I am ably supported by Mrs. Parkinson, Miss. Hastie and Mrs. McNicholas.
In our Nursery we follow the Early Years Framework to plan learning activities for your child to develop them in Literacy, Communication and Language, Mathematics, Personal and Social Development, Physical Development and in Knowledge and Understanding of the World.
We are very excited to be supporting your child in their journey of learning in Nursery.
We focus on a different topic each half term providing a stimulating, vibrant, fun and caring environment for each child to grow, develop confidence and reach their full potential.
We encourage independence, speech, social skills and self regulation. See below for ways to support your child develop these skills.
Every Thursday your child will come home with a book of their choice, please read with your child and ask them questions about the pictures and about the story. Return the book the following Thursday to receive a new book and write in the diary provided.
Jo Jingles is a fun and exciting music and dancing session for the children to take part in, the sessions are Thursday Morning and Tuesday afternoon.
Swimming is on a Friday morning. If there is more demand we will look at providing an afternoon lesson. Lessons are held at Gorlands in Longridge, they provide transport with fitted car seats. The cost is £5 per week. There are 10 spaces available.
The topic for the rest of this term is Transport, we will be looking at all different kinds of land, air and sea vehicles, the sounds they make, what makes them work and how we travel to nursery.
