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.
The White Mere Community Primary School Christmas Carol Service at St Andrew’s Church is tonight, Wednesday 16th December 2016 at 6pm.
Our Christmas activities carried on apace yesterday with a trip to see this year’s panto, Beauty and the Beast.
At the start of our school term back in September 2015, we set all of our children a challenge. The challenge was for each year group to try to achieve the highest percentage of attendance for that school year (September 2015 – July 2016) and at the end of the school year they would be rewarded with a trip of their choice.
