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 in Nursery
Well what a busy an exciting time we have had in Nursery this half term. We have certainly enjoyed our topic ‘We can party!’ We have celebrated different festivals and celebrations, Bonfire Night, Diwali and Spooky day to name a few. We have talked about how we celebrate with our friends and families and the similarities and differences between the different festivals. We have had a Santa’s workshop in our Number Area where the orders for toys have gone through the roof and Mrs Evans is still waiting for Buddy Elf to make a pair of Reindeer slippers. This year we have listened to The Christmas Story and retold it in our Role Play Stable. We have learnt about the Abstract Artist Cy Twombly and created our own work using a variety of media in his style. We have read the story The Gingerbread Man and have retold it with enthusiasm using puppets, story maps and little figures. The Ginger bread cake, biscuits and ginger beer was so delicious. We have been super creative with our Christmas activities creating candy canes, snowflakes and Christmas lights, we hope you like them too. Phewee I think it’s time for a holiday.
