Nursery

Here you will be able to find all information relevant to Nursery during the Coronavirus outbreak.

January 2021 Update:

During the current school closure period, Nursery is open for all children to continue to attend.  I understand that during this period you may wish to keep your child at home.  Home learning is provided below to ensure your child is able to continue to access our EYFS curriculum.

In Nursery, we hope to shortly be able to offer some 1:1 video call sessions with myself, you and your child. These will endeavor to support you and your child with their learning and build upon the individualised approach we strive to provide your child with in the Early Years. I recognise your individual circumstances will be different and that you will need time to adjust to these new changes, so I will try to support as much as possible. More information about how you will be supported via these video call sessions in this way will be available soon. In the meantime, you can contact me via the class email account and I will also make telephone calls to you all during the course of the week.

The remote learning will involve the setting of daily learning challenges. These can be found below. Where appropriate / possible, videos and other resources will accompany the activities in order to support your child with their learning.

September 2020 – New academic year

In the new academic year, Nursery will be called Bumblebee Class, linking with the school classroom names.

Over the Summer holidays the staff have been busy making changes to the classroom layout and putting in place some exciting new features.

Below I have created a video, which you can watch with your child.  There are lots of pictures which will hopefully give you a flavour of the new Nursery setting; I hope you find this useful and informative.

We look forward to seeing you all in September.

Kind Regards

Miss Pratt

Nursery Lead

Dear Parents,

Each Monday I will be uploading a topic map which will provide a range of activities you can complete with your child at home.  These activities are all linked to the learning areas covered within the EYFS framework. I will also be uploading a list of fun daily challenges covering different areas of your child’s learning and development.

I hope that you find these plans clear and easy to follow, but if you have any issues please let me know and I will try to address these.  The school has set up a specific email for Nursery communication during this time.  This will be checked during the week between 10am and 2pm.  I would love to see photos of the children’s learning and achievements, these can be shared via email. If sharing home learning, please specifically let me know if you do not wish for it shared on social media via the School Twitter account.

Take care, stay safe and I look forward to welcoming the children back to Nursery once we re-open.

Miss Pratt
