Welcome to our Nursery page!
At Forefield School Nursery we love to learn through practical, fun and meaningful experiences. We focus on developing core skills to help us as future learners. We spend lots of time outdoors developing our physical skills, bodily control and co-ordination. We also learn how to be good listeners and confident speakers. In Nursery we play lots of games which help us to become good friends.
We currently have three sessions in the Nursery, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and one whole day session for children entitled to the 30 hour offer. During these sessions we have whole class carpet time and key worker times when we work in smaller groups. We have lots of time to explore, learn and play in the Nursery environment both indoors and outdoors. We learn to be independent learners in the Nursery and develop lots of key skills.
Mrs Evans is the Nursery teacher. She works with Mrs Mc William who is the Nursery Nursery for all sessions. Mrs Harvey is the key worker for children who attend Forefield Nursery all day, and Mrs Porter supports children’s learning in the Nursery in the afternoon sessions.
Autumn 1 in Nursery
We have been so busy in Nursery this half term! We have been learning about ourselves, our senses and our families and friends. During senses week we tasted different flavours, listened to different sounds, even adventuring out in to ‘big school’ for a listening walk. We were nose detectives smelling different smells and we identified ice cream, tooth paste, vinegar and lemon. October has seen us exploring further afield visiting Moorside park to look for signs of Autumn. We were delighted to find autumn treasures too. I wonder what next half term will bring?
