Nursery & Reception

Welcome to Nursery and Reception!

The Early year’s foundation stage is made up of Nursery and Reception classes. We work closely together to provide a caring and stimulating learning environment to meet the needs of each individual child. We want the children to enjoy their first experience of school life and give them enthusiasm to begin their learning journey.

 

Arriving
Please ensure your child arrives promptly, children are provided with a coat peg and are encouraged to hang their own coat up. We encourage independence at every opportunity. Parents can help by encouraging independence with their child's self-help skills at home; such as toileting, getting dressed, putting shoes on, putting on coats and fastening buttons.

 

Outdoor play
Nursery and reception share a well-resourced outdoor area and we offer a free-flow system. This means that children can choose whether they want to access activities indoors and outdoors. The same learning opportunities are available outside, but are presented in different ways, usually on a larger scale. The school provides waterproof jackets and pants to ensure children can enjoy the outdoor environment in every weather. Parents are asked to bring in a pair of wellies which can stay in school.

 

Key information

  • We have dance every Thursday morning, please ensure your child’s uniform is clearly labelled.

  • All reading books are changed every Friday, please ensure your child’s book is in on this day in the morning.

  • Homework will be given out every 2 weeks, please check in your child’s book or on the school website for the return to school date.

  • We encourage parents to provide their child with a spare set of clothes to keep in school in case of any accidents.
