  • Miss Hardy

    Canada Class Teacher Thursday and Friday

A big welcome to all of our new children who started nursery in April and we welcome back all our children who were with us before.
 
Last half term, the children were interested in witches and dragons. Planning from their interests we read the story 'Room on the Broom'. The children enjoyed retelling the story, making potions and role playing. Some of our older children also visited the space dome that came into school, learning about the planets.
 
 
Miss Dagnall is the class teacher Monday-Wednesday and Miss Hardy is the class teacher Thursday and Friday. The class is supported by Mrs Morgan, Mrs Shuttlewood,Mrs Eglin, Mrs Stainer, Miss Hallett, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Palmer.

In nursery, the children learn, by playing and exploring, being active, and being creative and critical thinkers. This takes place both indoors and outside throughout the year. During this half term we will be spending lots of time in our nursery outdoor area where children will be busy planting bulbs and improving their gross motor skills.

This half term we will be busy settling all our new children into our class routine, talking about our class rules. Children will be introduced to Marshmallow the monkey;  who loves to be looked after by the children. Each week children will be chosen to take Marshmallow home, to look after and then his diary can be filled in with all of the exciting things he has done with the children.

In Nursery, your children will have a named member of staff, known as a key person. They will spend time with their keyperson towards the end of the Nursery session and in small groups will share where they have enjoyed learning that day and who with.

We also keep track of your children’s learning development by recording observations and placing them in their own learning journey. You too can contribute towards your child’s learning journey by recording an observation on the parents communication sheet which is located by the red box in the cloak room.
