Our Nursery Sessions
Jayne will meet your child at the door and bring them into the Nursery. Your child will find their name card and post it in the box and can then choose an activity.
Within the nursery, we have toys and resources available all the time as part of our continuous provision, and staff plan enhancements to these activities to support the children’s learning and to follow their interests. Activities are planned for both inside and outside. Some of the areas inside the nursery are:
And in the garden we have:
At 9.15/1.15 we open the door to the garden and the children are able to choose whether they wish to learn inside or outside. Staff are working with the children both inside and outside to further the learning and model language through play.
During the session, the children will take part in a story time activity. We read a story (linked to our focus), complete an activity and then sing our focus song. Each day we have a different focus for our activities, and we look at Literacy, Maths, PSED, Phonics and Tales Toolkit over the week. We may also do ‘special’ activities in our story time sessions depending on the time of the year.
We also enjoy a ‘family’ snack time, where all of the children sit down to have their snack with their peers and staff. We use this as an opportunity to model language and to encourage the children to eat different foods.
At the end of the session, the children take part in singing time with an adult. We sing a variety of songs on different days. The children get a chance to choose their favourite songs and also to learn new ones. Some of our favourite songs can be found on our website if you would like to sing them at home.
