Nursery

Welcome to Nursery!

 

In Nursery we follow the 'Early Years Foundation Stage', which consists of the following areas of learning:

 

Prime Areas

Communication and Language 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Physical Development

 

Specific Areas

Literacy

Children in Nursery learn through focused groups with an adult and through child initiated activities. The classroom's extra provision is planned to match our current topic or book we are reading.

 

Mrs Dexter is our class teachers and Miss Anthony is our teaching assistant.

Dangerous Dinosaurs

 

Our topic this term is 'Dangerous Dinosaurs'. We will be focusing on learning about dinosaurs and prehistoric lands during Summer One. In Summer Two we will be learning about some of the other animals that lived during the prehistoric time and whether there are any dinosaurs still alive today! We will look at cave drawings and the artist Damien Hirst's 'pipe cleaner animal' exhibition. We will also be taking a trip to a local animal farm to see some modern day dinosaurs!

 

Some of our focus texts this term will be:

Dear Dinosaur 

Cave Baby 

Dinosaur Roar!

Volacanos

 

We can't wait to show you all the wonderful things we have learnt. Please make sure to check back to our website page to see photographs of activities in our classroom.
