Nursery Places September 2021

Is your child 3 and ready to start nursery in September 2021? We are now taking applications for places in our Nursery - please contact the school office on 01275 372659 to register your interest.

At Crockerne Church of England Nursery we provide children with a wide range of learning opportunities. They will learn through structured and child initiated learning. We provide well-planned play, both indoors and outdoors, encouraging learning through enjoyment and challenge. We encourage children to become independent learners. The emphasis in Nursery is on making learning through play, fun and rewarding for your child.

Teacher - Mrs Juliet Evans

  • To create a secure, caring and friendly environment where both adults and children are valued and have mutual respect for each other.
  • To develop a child's social skills to enable them to interact with their peers and adults and to prepare them to become tolerant members of the local community.
  • To promote high standards of behaviour and provide a code of conduct, by which all pupils will live, work and play.

The curriculum is known as the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’. The curriculum has seven areas of learning and development. All areas are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive

Term 4 February 2021

 

Acorn Nursery Class

Term 4

 

Our REAL question continues this term……

 

What does a Pirate eat for tea?

 

 

Welcome to back to term 4. I hope you have all been staying safe and well at this difficult time.

 

 Our REAL project has been progressing well.  The children have engaged with Classic Tales through storytelling, role play, yoga, dance, games, activities and cooking.  Children have, sailed the seas with the pirates, shopped in Handa’s fruit shop, made smoothies with the hungry caterpillar and eaten honey sandwiches with Winnie the Pooh.

 

We have begun using a story square to retell our favourite traditional tales.  By the end of the project we would like the children to tell us their own story which we are hoping to turn into our own Nursery Book of Tales.

 

We have shared on Tapestry a knowledge organiser which explains the ways you can support your child’s learning at home….. but don’t forget to enjoy sharing a story and have fun

Much Loved Stories

Many children have already brought in their ‘much loved’ story. The one they like to hear again and again at home. They have shared their story with us sitting on the special Story Tellers Chair, we have scribed their tale and added to our story book.  If your child has not already done so, please encourage them to bring in their favourite book as we do not want them to miss out on this exciting opportunity.  

 

Jolly Phonics

Children have been enjoying ‘What’s in the Box Today’ phonics games.  I have sent home phonics action sheets to allow you to practice at home.  Try looking together for objects starting with the sound of the week.

A thank you to parents and children, we have had some ingenious items brought in treasure boxes to support phonics.  I have once again marked which sound we are learning each week.  You and your child may like to find something beginning with that sound to share.

 

Show and Tell

Don’t forget to encourage your children to bring in something to share maybe linked with a favourite story or the phonic sound of the week.  We will be giving the children the opportunity to share their box during milk and fruit time, to encourage children to listen to each other, speak to a small group and question.

 

Home Visits

We hope you and your child have enjoyed having Elmer or the You Choose books at home.  We will be sending out story sacks this term for you to enjoy together.

 

Handwriting

We have been working hard to develop the muscles required for pencil holding.  We have begun to practice writing the capital letter at the start of our name and will introduce the rest of the small letters this term.

 

Home Learning

Nursery continues to be open for all pupils.  We understand individual circumstances are constantly changing and to support learning at home we will continue to post suggested weekly activities on Tapestry.  Please let us know if you have any concerns or if there is any more we can do for you.
