Nursery provide a balance between adult-led and child initiated experiences. Children are supported in their development through play and exploration opportunities, short carpet sessions and adult guided work.
Literacy (reading and writing) is introduced to the children through Read Write Inc (RWI). RWI is a discreet phonics based programme which helps children learn to read whilst also developing a wide range of vocabulary and encouraging a love of stories. The children will be provided with a RWI homework folder, which will contain a new letter each week. We ask you take the time throughout the week at home to look at each new sound, in particular practicing the correct writing formation.
Throughout the year we teach the following topics:
Why do you love me so much?
What is special about me? How do we show that we care? We will explore these questions and more in this topic about love, families and how people are the same and different.
Where does snow go?
Why does snow melt? Why do icicles hang down? We will explore these questions and more in this topic about winter.
Can we explore it?
