Nursery 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Nursery
This year we have a class of 16 children, with 6 girls and 10 boys.
A warm welcome to all of our children and their parents. Mrs Morse, Mrs Horsfall and and Mrs Morris are looking forward to the start of a new and exciting learning journey with your child at St George’s. We have an open door policy, so please feel free to come and chat with staff about any concerns or issues that you may have, or to share some news about your child. If your child would like to bring something into school to share with us, then we would be more than happy to talk about it during our carpet time, so please discuss this with a member of staff at the beginning of the day.
In Nursery we learn through play, furthering our ability to communicate, explore and investigate the world around us, solving any problems that we encounter as we go (both indoors and outdoors) and develop an understanding of numbers and shapes.
We follow the Early Years curriculum with its seven areas of learning: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development, Communication and Language; Mathematics; Literacy, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Every area is equally important and organised into both our indoor and outdoor learning.
Stay and Play
We organise three Stay and Play sessions where parents and carers are actively encouraged to take part in staying for an hour one afternoon to see how your child is progressing. You will have plenty of opportunities for playing with your child within our classroom and outdoor area at the different activities. We will try to give you plenty of notice so that you are able to take the time to come to Stay and Play.
How can you help?
Please talk to your child about what they have been doing in school, they class everything as play because they do not realise that as they play with the activities and resources they are learning all of the time. Ask them what did they play with? Who did they play with? What did they like most about today? Encourage your child to start early mark making/writing by making and writing cards for family and friends, creating shopping lists together of the things that you need. Show your child/ren how you write and talk about what you are doing as if your child sees how you write then they are much more prepared to have a go. Lots of positive praise for trying and rewards, such as smiley faces, stampers, stickers etc will also encourage them to keep trying.
Please remember, our school day starts at 8:40 so please be on time and your child can gain the most from our Early Years department plus we finish at 3.00pm. If you are going to be late please could you phone our school office so that we are able to reassure your child. Thank you.
