Nursery

Welcome to Nursery!

Learning in nursery is a little bit different to the rest of school. If you come to our nursery sessions, you might come on every day or you can choose mornings or afternoon sessions


 

Our morning learning session start at 8:45am  and finish at 11:45pm. Our afternoon learning sessions start at 12.15pm and finish at 3:15pm.

Learning in nursery is very special. We pride ourselves on giving the children hands-on, exciting experiences which will feed their curiosity for the world around them. Learning supports children through their age and stages of development whilst helping them become independent in what they do and ready for the next stage in their education.

In nursery this half term, we are focussing on settling in all our new children. The children will visit with their parents and then they will start gradually, ensuring we can support individual needs.

Children will explore our areas of provision, discovering new learning. We will develop their social skills, getting to know each other, encouraging good sharing and working together. 

Our focus on farms and looking at which animals you might find on a farm will involve a visit from a real mobile farm!  If you get chance to visit a farm please send photos to our email.

This half term in nursery we will be looking at ‘ourselves’. We will talk about how the children have grown from being a baby, birthdays they have celebrated and their place within the family. We will be asking you to send in photos of your child and your family celebrations. We will also look at seasonal events such as Autumn, Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas.

Over the next few weeks we will introduce our ‘Stay and Play’ sessions. Parents will be invited, a few at a time, to stay for a short visit and explore the nursery with your child and see how well they have settled into nursery life! Look out for your invite over this half term.

We love involving parents in their child’s learning. We know parents will see their child doing lot of fabulous things at home and we are keen to capture these with you. We call these

WOW Moments. We encourage parents to take photos and tell us all about these.

You can email your WOW Moments to us at early.year@grovehouseprimary.co.uk.
