I am Miss Greene and I am delighted to be teaching Nursery this year.
In our class we are supported by Miss Wray and Miss Santos.
We work as a team and we would like to welcome you Parents/Carers to join us,
to work in partnership, to ensure your child reaches their full potential.
This term we will be focusing on the topic ‘Green Fingers'
Please view the starred heading above 'Termly Overview' for planning and book lists.
We will explore learning through a balance of [well-planned] adult directed activities and
child initiated play, covering the seven areas of learning.
In order to support your child at home, with their learning and development, please encourage:
Please check our website and Tapestry regularly as we will be updating it with all of
the wonderful learning that has been taking place.
You can also browse through our photos by clicking on [the starred heading above]
'Nursery Photo Gallery' where you will see a sample
of some of the exciting activities covered so far.
Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for all types of weather
as outdoor play is an important part of our daily learning routine.
(A full change of clothes should be left on your child's coat peg.)
As we are now in Summer Term remember to protect your child
from the harmful UV rays. Sun protection is essential...
so please provide a sun-hat and apply sun-cream before school.
If you would like to speak to me I am available before or after
school most mornings. Please contact the office to make an appointment.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
HOME LEARNING 2021
Good Morning Nursery Children & Families,
I hope you had a lovely Christmas break. I have missed you all and am looking forward to being with you as soon as possible. In the meantime we will have to do our learning at home, with our families.
Parents you are, and always have been, your child's primary educator and I know you will make the right decisions in choosing activities to engage in, to enable your child to reach their full potential. I will work in partnership with you, through the provision of daily activities and links to support learning.
Young children learn best through their play so do let them play as much as possible and scaffold (assist and enhance) their learning through interaction, i.e. communication, questioning and suggestions - to stretch the imagination and move learning to the next level.
Please look at Tapestry daily, where you will find lots of 'fun' learning ideas to engage in, and you will also see me! Remember to upload photos and videos so I can see how much your child has grown over the holiday, and all the interesting learning you are doing through play. You can send me messages through the comment box (in Tapestry) and I will reply every day. I will also telephone you weekly.
Points to assist with learning and development...
Most importantly - Stay healthy and safe. Remember - HANDS - FACE - SPACE
Take care and keep in touch.
Learning Through Play
I am excited to share a series of short educational films ‘Learning Through Play’ that showcase 20 activities that parents can do cheaply and easily at home with their early years children. The films are translated into Sylheti, Urdu, Polish and Somali and are part of our Schools with Roots project.
