A normal day in Nursery

General Information

Mondays

 Our day begins with settling in before register, the weather and the days activity is discussed. We then do rhyme time as part of our phonics scheme. Every other week after the children have settled we will do our PE. If the children are not taking part in PE then they will have a go at Dough Disco and a fine motor activity. During this session we monitor when we need our own snack and have access to the snack bar to develop our independence skills. Once the children have settled into nursery we will have a 'Listening Time' with Lola / Phonics session and mental maths. We end the day with story / rhymes or peer massage.

British Values

 

In Nursery we help promote British values. We celebrate a famous British Person in the first half term This year we have chose Julia Donaldson.  Children are  also taught about different communities and cultures, where we often celebrate festivals from around the world, such as Christmas, Chinese new year, pancake day, Easter etc. We have close links with the local community.  As part of school, children in Nursery strive to  show attributes to be chosen for the TORCH child of that week and take our Bee Buddy home for the weekend
