Meet the staff;
Mrs Duncan, Miss Rowell and Mrs Smith work with our Nursery pupils in the Nursery base within our Early Years classroom.
Mrs Brown, Mrs Young, Mrs Pike and Miss Thompson are with Reception pupils in the Reception base within the Early Years classroom.
Nursery and Reception children share the Outdoor Area.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) has seven areas of learning designed to ignite children’s curiosity to learn.
3 Prime Areas;
Communication and Language
Personal Social and Emotional Development
4 Specific Areas;
Understanding the World
Expressive Art & Design
Our environment supports these seven areas and encourages exploration and play in order to learn. We continually observe children to support their development as learners.
The Early Years Characteristics of Effective Learning are as follows;
- Playing and learning – children investigate and experience things and have a go
- Active learning – children concentrate and keep on trying
- Creating and thinking critically – children have and develop their own ideas
Our school days are a balance of adult-led and child-initiated activities.
Our themes will follow pupils’ interests throughout the year.
Our Reception class is named Goldsworthy after the British artist and sculptor and our Nursery class is named Einstein after the physicist. Collectively we are referred to as the Early Years.
Our Early Years is a wonderful, nurturing environment in which to grow and flourish in God’s image.
