The children have settled really well into school and come bouncing into Nursery every day!
The Nursery follow the Early Years Foundation Curriculum which is divided into 7 ‘Areas of Learning’ with an emphasis on outdoor and child initiated learning as well as directed activities led by an adult. This half term we have mainly been focusing on Personal, Social and Emotional Development. We are delighted that the children are beginning make new friends and are learning to share and turn-take. The children have already demonstrated good independence skills and they can self-select the resources they want to use to complete a task. We have been enjoying exploring the indoor and outdoor learning environments.
The photos show some examples of what the children have been getting up to in the various areas in Nursery.
